5 January, 2019 12:12 Oil Price Will Depend on Seven Trends in 2019: Petrostrategies In 2018, the Dated Brent price jumped to an average of $70.78/b, a 31% increase over 2017. This is the highest annual level achieved by the British benchmark crude since 2015. The price of the OPEC basket of reference crudes rose from $52.43/b in 2017 to $69.78/b in 2018 (a 33% increase). Although all oil producers should welcome this trend, the current atmosphere seems to be marked by a degree of caution and confusion. For example, spreads of up to $20/b are reflected in price forecasts made by major banks: the more cautious (such as Citibank) forecast a Brent price of $59/b for 2019, while the most optimistic (Morgan Stanley) proposed a price of $78/b. Indeed, the new year is rife with uncertainties, making it difficult to forecast prices. 2 January, 2019 19:01 Armenia 2018 Through CivilNet’s Lens CivilNet highlights the turning points and the most memorable moments of 2018 in Armenia. 28 December, 2018 12:53 Armenia’s Snap Elections: Building a Ship at Sea One way or the other, the development path of the country is now entrusted solely to a weakly institutionalized political party with a clearly defined charismatic leader who has promised, and is apparently determined, to proceed with sweeping reforms. Where the political configuration unchains the incumbent from any considerable restraints on his way to doing this, it also relieves him from any restraints should he choose to convert the absolute public support into a dictatorship. Ultimately, as good intentions rather than entrenched rules of the game will be the guiding force for the country at least for the time being, party system building, and building of a constitutional democracy, is well to start from a scratch, and the job is indeed to be done while at sea. 28 December, 2018 10:54 Armenian Banks Annul Over Millions in Fines and Penalties Armenian banks have annulled fines and penalties owed by 14,963 borrowers, totaling more than $14,442,000, according to a statement made by Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on his facebook page.
