Lags, Costs, and Shocks: An Equilibrium Model of the Oil Industry

Gideon Bornstein, Per Krusell, Sergio Rebelo

NBER Working Paper No. 23423
Issued in May 2017, Revised in March 2018
NBER Program(s):Economic Fluctuations and Growth

We use a new micro data set to estimate a stochastic industry-equilibrium model of the oil industry. This effort is a first step towards studying the importance of ongoing structural changes in the oil market in a general-equilibrium model of the world economy. We analyze the impact of the advent of fracking on the volatility of oil prices. Our model predicts a large decline in this volatility.
