The corporation said the latest geopolitical tensions, including the west’s standoff with Iranover its nuclear programme and fears of supply of disruptions elsewhere meant a rather steep and fast increase in the price of oil in the first quarter of the year.

Brent prices in the first quarter averaged at $118 a barrel compared to $105 a barrel recorded during the same quarter of last year, the corporation said.
