World Bank lifts oil-price forecast

The World Bank raised its forecast for crude-oil prices by about 11% on Tuesday, citing expectations for a reduction in the global glut of crude supplies.

The international institution, which provides loans to developing countries, expects crude-oil prices to average $41 a barrel this year, compared with a previous forecast for $37 as oversupply in markets is expected to recede, according to the quarterly Commodity Markets Outlook report released Tuesday. The World Bank forecast is an average of Brent LCOM6, +4.36% West Texas Intermediate CLM6, +1.09% and Dubai crudes.

The estimate for this year would still mark a decline of 19% from last year, and implies “small increases through the rest of the year as the oversupply in the oil market diminishes, the report said.

 “the recent oil price rally brought some relief to producers’ cash flow, and many hedged production forward at higher prices, thereby delaying supply rebalancing,” the report said. “Higher prices and continued efficiency improvements” could also keep supply and demand from reaching a balance.

Deadline extension for new look Offshore Safety Awards

Organisers of a revamped awards ceremony celebrating the men, woman and companies doing their utmost for safety in the UK oil and gas industry have extended the deadline for nominations.

Those nominating in the six categories of the Offshore Safety Awards – organised by Oil & Gas UK and Step Change in Safety with Maersk Oil as principal sponsor – have until noon on Monday 2 May to get their entries in for the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre event on May 31.

Les Linklater, executive director of Step Change in Safety, said: “We are very excited about our new look Offshore Safety Awards. We have totally changed the format so that it is a real interactive, sharing and learning experience.”

Deirdre Michie, chief executive of Oil & Gas UK, added: “It is a great opportunity for personnel and companies to let their peers know what they are doing to make North Sea operations as safe as they can be. We hope to see as many nominations as possible for this event which we expect will prove really popular as well as being an accessible and efficient way of spreading safety knowledge.”

News from the Tank
On a more serious note, Our fish tank has survived our move quite well and seems to be flourishing. Since moving to Dyce we have had a few new additions that have settled in well with the residents. The crabs have marked their territory and the Clown fish seem to like the reef.
