Key quotes

“Saudi Arabia has more than 2mb/d of spare capacity. We expect its output to push above 12mb/d in Q2.” 

“We expect US oil production to fall, as the industry battens down the hatches to weather the expected price war.”

“We estimate pandemic-related demand losses of 1.6mb/d in H1 2020. That said, lower prices and resuming business activities will see a strong rebound in demand in 2H 2020.” 

“The supply increase from OPEC+ nations is more concerning. Should the price war worsen, we see a risk to the oil price.”
