US merchant bank Goldman Sachs expects volatile oil prices in the short-term on the back of uncertainty over possible disruptions to supply, with benchmark Brent crude in a $70-$80-barrel range.

Oil prices have declined sharply the past week as the Sino-US trade war intensifies and were hovering below $72-barrel on Tuesday, not far from their lowest since mid-April.

“Production disruptions and large supply shifts driven by US political decisions are the drivers of this new fundamental volatility, with demand remaining robust so far,” the bank said in a market briefing note.
