U.S. Shale Oil Resilience: What OPEC Didn't Expect

It has been over a year since OPEC declared its market-share cold war against shale oil producers, yet the cartel still can't declare "mission accomplished" and claim victory.

Shale Oil Demand

Following its decision not to cut oil production, OPEC expected oil prices to drop to $70 a barrel, which they thought would be enough to squeeze many shale oil producers out of the market.
