- Of course, there is a wide degree of uncertainty with these projections. Higher global oil prices, for example, would make the ability to export much more important.
- For now, there won’t be a flood of exports from the U.S. In the waning days of 2015, for example, WTI and Brent traded at parity. Absent a premium for Brent, U.S. producers may not be able to send much oil abroad for a profit at this point.
