    Global Crude Oil Supply and Demand Analysis

    Oil Market Analytics

    • Supply–Demand: US crude oil production continues to remain around 12 to 12.1 mbpd, reflecting challenges in increasing production levels. US crude oil inventory levels remained stable at lower levels around 420 million barrels. Overall inventory levels in the SPR facility continue to decline in Dec-22. U.S. oil recounts were reported around 620 levels in recent weeks.

    • OPEC Supply: OPEC is not likely to increase production in the long term to contain oil prices, and hence, result in a recovery in oil prices in recent weeks. Expectations of Chinese refinery demand improving to serve European consumption, especially in the upcoming winter season, further supported the oil prices.

    Crude Oil Price Forecast: Outlook

    • WTI crude oil prices are expected to average around 80.5 $/bbl. in Feb-23, with the overall trend remaining stable. Decline in US crude oil production growth rate, coupled with decrease in exports trend, is expected to reflect negatively on oil prices. Higher US interest rates are expected to further reflect negatively on the crude oil demand growth rate in the short term

    • Positive trend in the US stock markets and relatively weak US Dollar trend are expected to support demand growth rate and hence, it can help stabilize oil prices in the short term

    • Crude oil prices are expected to average around 85.5 $/bbl. in Feb-23 on expectations of demand recovery in China in the short to medium term. As production levels by OPEC are further decreased, it is expected to provide optimism over increase in oil prices. However, risk of further increase in interest rates in Europe is expected to keep overall demand growth rate levels stable. This environment is expected to result in overall stable trend in the crude oil prices, as both supply and demand growth rates are weakening
