Crude oil prices are likely to be between $75 and $80 per barrel in the first quarter of 2011, Kuwaiti Oil Minister Sheikh Ahmad al-Abdullah al-Sabah said on Monday.
Sheikh Ahmad also said Kuwait was interested in acquiring a strategic stake in state-run Indian Oil Corp, subject to economic feasibility.
On Sept. 6, India’s Oil Secretary S. Sundareshan said the Indian government planned to sell a 10 percent stake in IOC, the country’s biggest state-run refiner.
Sheikh Ahmed also said Kuwait was keen to keep its stake in BP at current levels.
