This project involved the study of the long-term forecasts of the world energy market provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, International Energy Agency, and some other private and governmental agencies. The team conducted a comparative analysis among these forecasts and a detailed investigation of the uncertainties that could shape the global energy market in the next two decades. This study focused on the assessment of the future of the world oil market and particularly the role of OPEC as a powerful oil producer.
