The average price of Oman oil (February Delivery 2021) has stabilised at $50, thus $6.17 per barrel higher than January 2021, according to the data from Dubai Mercantile Exchange (DME).
Oil price has continued to rally throughout the year so far and will help to cushion up the revenues of the government.
Analysts are expecting crude oil prices to rise in the coming months and will remain above the $50 level.

The price of oil is set to increase further, as more and more public services that require oil consumption continue to rise after being temporarily suspended during the pandemic.
The pricing system for Omani crude on the DME is used by five national oil-producing entities in the region: Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the Emirate of Dubai.
