It also now expects 2018 output at 10.7 million barrels per day, fractionally down from 10.79 million barrels projected last month. Meanwhile, the EIA forecast Brent crude oil spot to trade at $72 a barrel this year, marginally up from its July prediction of $71.80 a barrel and lowered its 2018 outlook on West Texas Intermediate crude prices to around $66 a barrel versus $69.95 a barrel from a month ago.
