In this week’s readers’ Q&A session, Amrita Sen, oil analyst at Barclays Capital, answers your questions.

In this second of two posts, she discusses drilling in the US, national oil subsidies and growing demand from the Middle East.

Earlier, she answered questions on whether speculation is driving up the oil price, whether such an increase could trigger another recession and when “peak oil” might occur.

(NB – Because of a very high volume of questions, we were not able to tackle every question submitted. Apologies if yours was not answered.)

Next week, Michael Bromwich, director of the US oceans regulator, will be answering your offshore-drilling queries. Email questions to energy.source@ft.com by the end of Sunday, April 10th.

But for now, over to Amrita:

The global economic recovery is unlikely to be threatened by rising oil prices, Amrita Sen, oil analyst at Barclays Capital, has said.

Answering Energy Source readers’ questions, Sen said she expected a “longer term increase in prices” with Opec spare capacity stretched and energy demand continuing to rise. But unlike other forecasters, she said such a rise would not threaten demand, with eastern consumers willing to pay more for their energy and western ones dipping into their savings.

The Chinese government’s commitment reduce energy consumption per unit of GDP by 20 per cent from 2005 levels has led to power rationing, which in turn has fuelled a boom in diesel-powered electricity generators.
