Brent to average 80 USD/bbl in December 2021 quarter

by Nidhi Bhati

Goldman Sachs expects Brent oil prices to average USD 80 per barrel in the December 2021 quarter. It had earlier expected oil prices to average USD 75 per barrel. It now expects a deficit of 1.7 million bpd in the final quarter of this year. Goldman further stated that progress on a United States (US)-Iran nuclear deal has stalled leading to increased risks that the potential ramp-up in Iran exports is later than its October base-case.
