Vin Lawrence Recommends Oil Hedges To Offset Eventual Price Rise – Cheap Oil Will Not Change Energy Policy


Dr Vincent Lawrence, the head of the Electricity Sector Enterprise Team (ESET), says Jamaica’s energy policy – crafted to escape the impact of rising oil prices – will remain unchanged even as oil prices tumble worldwide.

Lawrence further predicts that oil prices which have currently fallen below US$50 per barrel will again rise closer to the US$70 dollar mark when the market resumes “normalcy”.

On Tuesday, oil prices fell again to US$45.89 a barrel in New York, while Brent crude dropped to US$46.59 in London.

The ESET team leader is recommending that local importers start hedging to protect against the return to higher prices.
