Mr. Bandhit Thamprajamchit, President of Petroleum Refining Industry Club revealed 2020 global oil price trend that "the global economy is currently at 3.4 percent, causing crude oil demand to grow around 1.0 – 1.3 million barrel per day. Although, the U.S.-China trade war and Brexit have an impact on the global economic growth as well as oil demand, the supply of crude oil in the world market tends to surge due to an increase in production capacity of Non OPEC e.g. the United States. Meanwhile, OPEC still maintains its oil production level. PRISM Expert, therefore, forecasted that Dubai crude oil price next year will be around the range of 55 – 65 USD/bbl. The long-term factors that will have an effect on the global oil situation are green energy policies and innovation & technology development for sustainable energy."
