The bank predicts the highest price for this kind of oil this year to be in the fourth quarter - at $90 per barrel. In the first quarter, the bank predicts the average price at $77 per barrel, in the second quarter - $82 per barrel and in the third - $85 per barrel.

In the second quarter, the analysts predict a price drop to $85 per barrel. Then again increase to $ 90 per barrel in the third and $ 95 per barrel in the fourth quarter.

The bank forecasts the average price for Brent North Sea oil brand at a similar level of WTI - $83.5 per barrel in 2010 and $90 per barrel in 2011. The highest price for this sort of oil in 2010 and 2011 will be observed in the fourth quarter ($90 and $95 respectively).
