Dubai: The oil market is balanced in terms of supply and demand, Qatar’s Energy Minister Mohammed al-Sada said on Sunday.

“Geopolitical changes” are the reason for the recent rise in crude prices, the state-run Qatar News Agency quoted him as saying.

 

“There are developments in the oil market including supply and the increase in global demand, and these considerations will be taken into account at the next meeting of OPEC (the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries),” he said.

Oil prices have been rising as US sanctions against Iran’s crude exports are set to start next month. Brent crude is trading at nearly USD 85 a barrel, compared to USD 65 at the beginning of the year.
