14 April 2010

The International Energy Agency has said that global oil demand will rise by 1.67 million barrels per day in 2010 to meet rising demand that is expected to reach 86.60 million bpd this year, up from 84.93 million in 2009, Reuters has reported. The IEA estimated demand this year for OPEC crude and stocks would fall by 200,000 bpd to 29.1 million bpd. It said production by the OPEC member states rose by 30,000 bpd, taking their compliance as a group with promised output cuts to around 55% at the end of March, down from its previous estimate of 56% at the end of February.
