Case study 1/Oil prices fall on dimming prospect of output restraint.

Case study 1/Oil prices fall on dimming prospect of output restraint.
SINGAPORE | By Henning Gloystein
SINGAPOREOil prices fell on Monday as the chances of Middle East producers agreeing to curb overproduction appeared to fade, while stubbornly high U.S. output and worries about Asia’s economic outlook also dragged on prices.
Iran, returning to global oil markets after sanctions against it were lifted in January, said it would continue increasing its oil production and exports until it reaches the market position it enjoyed before the imposition of sanctions, according to a media report.
This makes a proposed deal by major producers to restrict ballooning output unlikely as top exporter Saudi Arabia said last week it would only participate if its rival Iran also took part.
…Despite a pick-up in recent economic data, including from India and China, analysts also poured cold water on hopes that Asia’s economic prospects were improving.
“Asia continues to face a structural growth problem – one that will not be cured in the space of a few, short months,” said HSBC’s Frederic Neumann. Asia has been a key consumer of crude oil over the past decade so this development is likely to further depress the price.

2. Students must critically evaluate at least one responses from other students for each of the 4 case
studies in the weeks 4, 7, 9 or 11. These critical discussions are due by 10pm (AEST) Sunday of the
