Brent

The situation in the oil market is still difficult. Quotations of black gold continue to fall. OPEC, which succeeded in 2018 in containing the collapse, is not in a hurry to make drastic decisions this time. The Secretary-General of the organization Mohammed Barkindo, on the sidelines of the energy forum, said bluntly that the cartel would wait and hope for stabilization.

Perhaps Brent quotes will slow down only at the psychological threshold of 50.00.
