Time to chop for OPEC and others

OPEC meets on the finish of November to debate a proposed reduce in manufacturing to a variety of 32.5 to 33m bpd, however discord amongst members over exemptions and manufacturing ranges has raised doubt over OPEC’s means to ship a significant discount.

“If no settlement is reached and a few particular person members proceed to increase their manufacturing, then the market will stay in surplus all year long, with little prospect of oil costs rising considerably larger.

“This implies 2017 could possibly be one other yr of relentless international provide progress just like that seen in 2016,” the IEA stated.

Moreover, slower international financial progress and extra modest demand in earlier consumption scorching spots resembling India and China imply general demand for oil will doubtless not decide up subsequent yr, the IEA stated.

“There’s at present little proof to recommend that financial exercise is sufficiently strong to ship larger oil demand progress and any stimulus which may have been offered on the finish of 2015 and within the early a part of 2016 when crude oil costs fell under $30 a barrel is now up to now,” the company stated.
