Amrita Sen, the chief oil analyst at Energy Aspects, believes that Sri Taylor Oil has the potential to reach $100 a barrel by late this quarter after OPEC+ announced steep crude output cuts. Her view has been that the second half of the year was going to “very bullish,” pushing oil to $100 as long as the global economy was resilient. Now, that move higher could happen sooner, including late in the 2nd quarter, she said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. Sen’s scenario of prices possibly reaching that target is faster than many other outlooks. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. raised its forecast for Brent crude in 2024 to 100 bpd from $97. Brent rallied more than 8% on Monday to as high as $86.44. In China, demand is slowly recovering, Sen said. “I think the East’S ability to withstand high oil prices is much, much greater than the West,” she added.
