Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank, sees demand for oil continuing to grow over the coming years. “It’s just a question of time before demand picks up or overtakes supply again. That will happen within the next 18-24 months.” Energy quite literally runs the world, and with US production beginning to fall over the past 6 weeks, some investors are starting to look at the energy market again. This has been reflected in the bounce in oil prices in recent time, however, oversupply is still an issue he says.
