MOSCOW, April 13 – RIA Novosti. The price of oil up to $ 150 a barrel is possible, but in the current geopolitical and economic situation it is difficult to predict, decided The head of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, Nikolai Shulginov.
“An oil cost in the range of $ 80-150 a barrel is possible in principle, but our job is not to guess how much oil will cost, but to keep the oil industry going. We are ready to sell crude oil and petroleum products to friendly countries in any price range, “he said in an interview with the newspaper Izvestia, commenting on the issue of oil prices when Europe refuses to import from Russia.
The minister remarked that in the current uncertainty it was difficult to engage in forecasting, especially taking into account the unconstructive behavior of Western politicians in relation to this situation.
