The oil market remains under pressure

Yesterday, oil prices again showed a decline in the area of multi-month lows – to the level of $93.20 per barrel. Today, Brent crude managed to recover to the level of $94.25. 


Pressure on the oil market continues to be exerted by investors' fears that rising interest rates and a slowdown in the global economic recovery will have a significant negative impact on demand.


The worries of market participants intensified yesterday after the Bank of England decided to raise the base interest rate to 1.75% from 1.25% per annum, at a record pace since 1995. At the same time, the British regulator noted that it expects a decline in the UK economy in the fourth quarter of 2022, and this decline will last throughout 2023. 


However, a number of analysts believe that it is too early to say that the world economy is in recession. Moreover, sharp fluctuations in the oil market due to the current global economic conditions make it difficult to forecast a deficit or surplus of production for 2022. 


On August 3, OPEC+ decided to increase oil production in September by 100,000 barrels per day, and this decision is aimed at studying the market reaction and may be revised.
