Global Oil Consumption in 2011

Global Oil Consumption in 2011These days it gave an upward revision of forecast global oil consumption by 2011 that the strong rise in demand from China and India, and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) should respond to this increasing production in order to stop what may happen to the markets during the coming months and a possible sharp rise.

In the monthly report which addresses the situation of the oil market, the IEA stresses that more oil is not injected to the market; the market may be too nervous and reflect on the price of oil and an increase in prices such as gasoline and other.

Among the causes of lack of oil in quantity demanded is partly due to the conflict in Libya as reported, it halted the extraction and export from Libya. As is muster last May, in which Libya’s oil output was only 100,000 barrels a day, far below the 1.5 million bpd by OPEC required prior to the conflict.

Another fact that helps is unmet demand is that the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Argentina, Yemen, Sudan and Kazakhstan, agreed supply cuts temporary even if these countries do not belong to the so-called oil cartel. But if the groups these continue to produce 200,000 bpd by 2011.

This led to the passage of a demand to OPEC from 29.7 million barrels per day during the second quarter of 2011 to demand a 30.7 million during the third quarter and for the fourth quarter that would drop to 30.1 million demand barrels a day.

All this global oil demand in 2011 will be 89.3 million barrels a day, about 120,000 barrels more than estimated 1 month ago compared with 2010, this means that there is an increase of 1.4%.
