Favorable forecasts of world oil demand on Tuesday pushed oil prices to further growth. The price of Brent oil exceeded $82 per barrel for the first time since the autumn of 2014. By 14:00 Moscow time, the November futures for Brent crude rose 0.9% to 82 dollars 11 cents a barrel. The price of the November futures contract for WTI rose 0.7% to 72 dollars 56 cents a barrel. Analysts note that oil contracts continue to grow based on traders' fears that in the fourth quarter there will be a supply deficit due to a reduction in oil supplies from Iran. As Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said, in 2019, there could be a surplus supply in the oil market, and OPEC + could then return to a reduction in oil production.
