Brent crude oil prices spike to $70-$75 per barrel after the Trump administration stops waiving economic sanctions on Iranian oil exports. U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo announces that the U.S. no longer grants the core waivers to China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Turkey etc as of May 2019. This strategic move threatens to wipe off almost $1 million barrels of international crude oil per day. In response, oil prices surge to their highest levels since November 2018. Middle East countries such as Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates agree to make up for lost oil supply from Iran. Key oil price gyrations are likely to continue in 2019-2020, and crude oil futures forecast the upper range of $80-$95 per barrel. Oil price hikes can translate into higher profit margins for OPEC countries, especially Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

This upward oil price trend improves the economic prospects of Saudi Aramco in the next biggest IPO lock-up period. In the grand scheme, the American national security strategists trade off temporary oil price fluctuations with more draconian economic sanctions on the nuclear nation Iran. This containment strategy helps successfully isolate Iran to the detriment of oil-dependent economies worldwide.
