New COVID-19 variant throws oil industry into tailspin: Kaieteur News
—Could wipe out almost 3m barrels of oil demand per day–Rystad Energy
If Omicron, the new variant of COVID-19, triggers more lock downs or restrictions worldwide, Rystad Energy predicts that it could cost the global oil market as much as 2.9 million barrels per day (bpd) of demand in the first quarter of 2022. This would bring total expected demand down from 98.6 million bpd to 95.7 million bpd. According to the consultancy group in its latest analysis, if the variant spreads rapidly, causing a rise in COVID cases and the reintroduction of lockdowns, oil demand could fall from an expected 99.1 million bpd to 97.8 million bpd in December 2021 alone – a drop of 1.3 million bpd.

JP Morgan says $125 a barrel oil price is coming: OilNOW
(Reuters) – Oil prices are expected to overshoot $125 a barrel next year and $150 in 2023 due to capacity-led shortfalls in OPEC+ production, JP Morgan Global Equity Research said. “As the group’s (OPEC+) real volume potential is discovered, this should drive a higher risk premium to oil prices,” the bank said in a note dated Nov. 29. Oil rose on Thursday, with benchmark Brent crude futures around $69 a barrel, as investors adjusted positions ahead of an OPEC+ decision on supply policy, although concern the Omicron coronavirus variant could hit fuel demand capped price gains.
