U.S. DOE forecasts $95 as most likely Brent price by 2050
1259547-800x400
The U.S. Department of Energy believes that the most likely price for Brent crude by 2050 will be $95 a barrel.

But a DOE forecast also included an optimistic “high scenario”, suggesting Brent could rise to $173 a barrel.

    The forecasts were issued against the background of declarations in Europe that oil is to be abandoned as part of a transition to a carbon-free economy.

    The “high scenario” assumes that expenditure on renewable energy sources will remain high and that hydrocarbon resources and the technology needed to secure them will, on the contrary, remain reasonably priced. Those factors would underpin a rise in price to $173 a barrel.

    Under a “low scenario”, oil prices by 2050 would remain at the level of $48 a barrel. Expenditure on renewables would be 40 % lower than in the baseline scenario and technology required for oil and gas extraction would be costly.

Russian scientists developed new method for breaking oil-water emulsions

The scientists from the V.I. Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) developed a new method for breaking field oil-water emulsions into water and oil without specialised chemical agents. It helps to receive feedstock for downstream refining or for sales. The research outcomes are published in the Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering.
