The price of oil will hover between $60 and $65 per barrel till the end of 2015, Lukoil CEO Vagit Alekperov said at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday.

When answering a question on his forecast regarding crude oil price by the end of this year, he said: "I think it will range from $60 to $65 [per barrel]."

According to Gazprom Neft CEO Alexander Dyukov, oil price will stand at $75 per barrel in the mid-term, and it will return to previous high levels in the long run. This level of prices will allow investment for supporting necessary output level, he said, adding though that $60 and $65 per barrel oil price "does not scare oil companies."
