Global Crude Oil Supply and Demand Analysis

Oil Market Analytics

  •  Supply–Demand: Global demand and supply growth have sustained above 100 million barrels with supply/demand reflecting stability. The implied surplus line issloping sideways further implying stability in the global market. However, the relative levels of surplus remain high and will weigh negatively on the crude oil prices.
  •  OPEC Supply: OPEC countries have extended the production cut deal to Mar-2020 and the decline in overall supplies is evident from OPEC. However, further compliance will require major challenges as Saudi Arabia would prefer higher oil prices to support Aramco IPO which can influence other oil producers to increase production as well on higher price levels.

US Oil Production sustain all-time high levels:

  •  US Production: The US crude oil production has stabilized around 12 mbpd with marginal decrease as rig counts continue to decline steadily. However, overall levels on a historical basis continue to remain significantly high.
  • US Inventories: The inventory levels declined to 450 million barrels post increasing to 480 million barrels reflecting short-term recovery in crude oil demand. The decline in inventory levels is expected to persist as prices hold relatively higher levels.
  • US Exports: The US crude oil exports have sustained 3.0 mbpd levels, but have witnessed decline in levels intermittently and hence reflects decline in external demand which can reflect negatively on oil prices in upcoming months.
