Petrochemicals and Refining Integrated Synergy Management (PRISM) and Petroleum Refining Industry Club of Federation of Thai Industries forecasted that Dubai crude oil price in 2020 would be around 55 – 65 USD/bbl.Factors that should be closely monitored include trade war, economic stimulus measure, increase in oil production capacity of Non OPEC, and policy on oil production of OPEC.

Mr. Chansin Treenuchagron, President and Chief Executive Officer of PTT Public Company Limited,presided over the opening ceremony of 2019 The Annual Petroleum Outlook Forum: "Sustainable Energy…Shaping A Better Future.

Mr. Bandhit Thamprajamchit, President of Petroleum Refining Industry Club revealed 2020 global oil price trend that "the global economy is currently at 3.4 percent, causing crude oil demand to grow around 1.0 – 1.3 million barrel per day. Although, the U.S.-China trade war and Brexit have an impact on the global economic growth as well as oil demand, the supply of crude oil in the world market tends to surge due to an increase in production capacity of Non OPEC e.g. the United States. Meanwhile, OPEC still maintains its oil production level. PRISM Expert, therefore, forecasted that Dubai crude oil price next year will be around the range of 55 – 65 USD/bbl. The long-term factors that will have an effect on the global oil situation are green energy policies and innovation & technology development for sustainable energy."
