WORLD OIL DEMAND 2014 - 15
World Oil Demand
In 2014, world oil demand was relatively unchanged from the previous MOMR; total world oil demand growth for 2014 now stands at 1.13 mb/d after a marginal downward revision of 10 tb/d, accounting for the latest actual data for 2Q14.
In 2015, world oil demand is projected to grow at a higher rate than in 2014, growing by 1.21 mb/d from the 2014 level to average around 92.35 mb/d. The 2015 growth level of 1.21 mb/d signifies a 0.08 mb/d increase from the growth foreseen for this year. Non-OECD countries are likely to lead oil demand growth with 1.18 mb/d in total demand while OECD nations are predicted to marginally rise for the first time since 2010, recording growth of 35 tb/d. The progress of economic development in major economies around the globe is the key risk factor affecting the world oil demand projection in 2015.

AN - China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) is willing to invest $3 billion in its existing oil and gas operation in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said on Sunday following a meeting with the Chinese in Abuja.
REUTERS - Production at Libya’s giant Sharara oil field was expected to fall by at least 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) on Saturday after two staff were abducted in an attack by an unknown group, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said.
IMF - Output grew by 3.8 percent in 2017, underpinned by a resilient non-hydrocarbon sector, with robust implementation of GCC-funded projects as well as strong activity in the financial, hospitality, and education sectors. The banking system remains stable with large capital buffers. Growth is projected to decelerate over the medium term.
IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
