Goldman Sachs isn't getting too excited about the rally in oil.
Crude oil prices have risen 15 percent since the start of August on speculation of a reduction in output by OPEC members as well the weakening of the greenback that has boosted demand for oil, which is traded internationally in dollars.
"While oil prices have rebounded sharply since August 1, we believe this move has not been driven by incrementally better oil fundamentals, but instead by headlines around a potential output freeze as well as a sharp weakening of the dollar," Goldman analysts wrote.
"Given the large uncertainty on the timing, magnitude and duration of such supply shifts, we continue to view oil as having to price near-term fundamentals with a lower emphasis on the more uncertain longer-term fundamentals," they said.
Goldman is sticking to its forecast of $45-$50 per barrel forecast for Brent crude oil though next summer.
U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude is now around $47 a barrel in Asian hours, while European Brent is around $49 a barrel.
Oil supply from the three countries has been hit by political instability and conflicts that have abated recently, enabling crude oil shipments to move.
Goldman said the improved supply could push the global oil market into a surplus, compared with its earlier forecast of a 230k barrels-a-day average demand-supply deficit.
Still, there remains considerable uncertainty in these regions, added the Goldman analysts.
"Even if flows fail to materially increase in each country, we reiterate our view that the oil price recovery is tenuous," they added.
Should the disrupted production rebound in a sustained fashion, WTI crude oil prices will drop to $45 a barrel against the bank's current $52.5 a barrel forecast.
OPEC's informal meeting next month in Algeria is unlikely to affect prices much.
"In our view, thawing relationships between parties in conflict in areas of disrupted production would be more relevant to the oil re-balancing than an OPEC freeze which would leave production at record highs and could prove counterproductive if it supported prices further and incentivized activity elsewhere," they added.
