3 Oil Price And Production Insights For 2022 From Dallas Fed Energy Survey Jan 06, 2022 2:18PM ET
I'm not sure how you could interpret this column as bearish. I gave 3 reasons why US producers look like they won't be growing production that much in 2022, which is a bullish indicator for oil prices. The price example I used was simply to illustrate how oil company executives are much more conservative in their oil price forecasts than financial institutions are, which I attribute to being traumatized by very low prices for years prior and then watching WTI go negative in 2020. The point is that people shouldn't assume that oil companies are basing their budgets/capital expenditures off of where oil prices are, or bank forecasts, but are actually using lower numbers.

Oil Price, The U.S. Dollar And The Pressure Of Rising Inflation Mar 18, 2021 7:40AM ET
Historically, the numbers are still quite low. But the Fed is still trying to balance. There is also still pressure within the US in favor of inflation to help exports.

No Single Oil Producer Can Drive Prices Right Now. Here's Why Dec 19, 2019 12:35PM ET
Other than the temporary jump from the attack on Saudi oil facilities, oil sanctions haven't impacted prices this year. The US has sanctions on both Venezuela and Iran and neither caused an increase in oil prices. In fact, Phase One of the U.S.-China trade pact probably had the biggest impact on oil prices this year (other than the temporary effect from Abqaiq and Khurais).

5 Information Sources Oil Traders Rely On To Make Better Market Decisions Aug 22, 2019 7:18PM ET
Yes! Sentiment about US Frackers is definitely pushing the price down. Even when the global production numbers are down, say from OPEC, there is little reaction from the market because sentiment is focused on the shale boom.
5 Information Sources Oil Traders Rely On To Make Better Market Decisions Aug 22, 2019 7:16PM ET
That’s a really good question. I’d say that these days (the last few months) the numbers seem to have little impact on the market unless it tells them something about a potential recession or the future of US-China trade relations. The whole market is being driven by these fears.
