Oil: Plan For $60 and Let Others Hope For $100, says Lien

Brent crude has surged more than 70 percent from a 12-year low earlier this year as a global glut shows signs of easing, bringing relief to oil companies and producing countries like Norway, which have been pummeled by the worst market downturn in a generation.
