MOSCOW, October 23 — RIA Novosti, Natalia Dembinski. Oil prices steadily go up and in the next year can reach a hundred dollars per barrel. The probability is that this growth will not stop, said the Minister of energy of Saudi Arabia Khalid al-Faleh. The reason is the continuing uncertainty with the supply of black gold on the world market, which could lose up to three million barrels per day. The Saudis warn that they are not compensated. Why are oil prices ready to go to the heights of 2008 and is it advantageous to Russia at RIA Novosti.

The Iranian factor

The rally promotes the approach of a new anti-Iran sanctions and the fall in supply from other countries. American tough restrictions against Tehran, including energy exports, will come into force on 4 November. Countries-violators, who will remain with the Islamic Republic of commercial relations, are subject to the applicable secondary measures.

Experts warn: a sharp reduction of Iranian oil exports — the third-scale oil producer OPEC is facing serious global market turmoil.
How much is enough

Economically viable level of oil prices, experts have called the range of 65-80 per barrel. This level is most useful for the Russian economy as it stimulates to develop non-oil sector and not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Another thing is that Russia is now little that depends.

«Unfortunately, objectively Russia has practically no influence on the unfolding in the moment, the destabilizing processes. It is important to understand them and prepare for them,» said Mastepanov.

Failures of oil to $ 40 per barrel the market is also not justified, but economists shrug: on the basis of policy of the USA cannot be ruled out and this.
