Citi says oil could rally
Libya, Nigeria, Venezuela, Iran and Iraq are all pumping at close-to capacity and a supply gap could be emerging, according to Citigroup head of commodities research Ed Morse.
«Fear in the market has been that OPEC production will rise dramatically,» said Morse. However, «there could be a supply gap emerging, which could point to a tighter market,» he told Bloomberg.
He said the lack of investment in OPEC countries in future production are lagging.
