OIL price to remain low for several years: say BP chief Bob Dudley and Exxon chief Rex W. Tillerson

Why Exxon's boss believes oil prices will stay low for years


NEW YORK -- Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson expects the price of oil to remain low over the next two years because of ample global supplies and relatively weak economic growth.
Speaking at the company's annual investor meeting in New York, Tillerson cautioned that geopolitical turmoil could unexpectedly send prices higher. But he said that if tensions calm, much more oil is ready to hit the market -- a market that is already flush with crude oil.
Exxon's presentation to investors outlining its business plans through 2017 assumes a price of $55 a barrel for global crude. That's $5 below where Brent crude, the most important global benchmark, traded on Wednesday. It's about half of what Brent averaged between 2011 and the middle of last year.

The chief of Exxon MobilRex W. Tillerson, says he expects the price of oilto remain low over the next two years . this is because of ample supplies and weak economic growth. At the company’s annual investor conference on Wednesday in New York, Mr. Tillerson cautioned that geopolitical turmoil could unexpectedly send prices higher, but he said much more oil was ready to reach the market. His remarks came the same day the Energy Department reported that United States oil supplies had grown to 444.4 million barrels, the highest level in at least 80 years. Exxon told investors that 16 new projects would begin producing oil and gas through 2017, helping the company increase production to 4.3 million barrels a day from four million barrels a day last year.

The boss of oil giant BP Bob Dudley has said that oil prices could remain low for up to three years.
He added that could send UK petrol prices below £1 per litre.
He told BBC Business editor Kamal Ahmed in Davos BP was planning for low oil prices for years to come.
That is expected to lead to job losses and falling investment in the North Sea oil industry and elsewhere, curbing supply and eventually forcing the price back up.
Italian oil group Eni has said the next spike could be around $200 a barrel.
Eni's chief executive, Claudio Descalzi, said the oil industry would cut capital spending by 10-13% this year because of slumping prices.
He said that would create longer-term shortages and sharp price rises in four to five years' time, if the Opec cartel fails to cut supplies.
Mr Descalzi was speaking at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort of Davos.

Future of oil is bleak. By 2030, 95% of people may not own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry

A futurist and clean energy expert, Toni Seba, has predicted that electric vehicles would destroy the global oil industry after a decade. By 2030, 95% of people won't own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry, he says.

Boeing and JetBlue Airways have announced they would begin selling a hybrid-electric commuter aircraft by 2022. Planned by start-up Zunum Aero, the small plane would seat up to 12 passengers and reduce travel time and cost of trips under 1,600 km.

PPF interest rate cut to 7.9% but are other investment options better? Here's a comparison

The Public Provident Fund (PPF) will now offer 7.9% but experts say it is still a good option for investors. Given that consumer inflation is down to 3.65%, the real rate of return of the PPF is a healthy 4.25%. 

"This is quite impressive for an option that offers assured returns," says Amol Joshi, Founder, PlanRupee Investment Service. "Investors should continue to take advantage of this long-term tax-free product," he adds. 

Even if you compare the PPF rate with the 10-year government bond yield, the scheme is attractive. "The 10-year bond yield is a better benchmark for PPF than consumer inflation," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital
Currently, the 10-year bond yield is around 6.8% and the PPF at 7.9% makes it for a premium of 110 basis points. "Historically, the average premium has been around 75 bps. So, the PPF investor is today earning a higher real return," says Nagpal. Even so, some investors may be feeling disappointed by the cu…
