IEA forecasts warn against ‘subdued’ demand amid supply disruptions Paris – Arabstoday The International Energy Agency (IEA) forecast Thursday that global demand for oil would grow by 795,000 barrels per day to a total of 90.6 million barrels (mb/d), an estimate slightly lower than its previous outlook , as a decline in Europe partially offset growth elsewhere.
But the IEA cautioned in a monthly report that falling oil prices did not necessarily foreshadow a \"bear market\" and added: \"There are signs that some of the recent easing of upward price pressures could be relatively short lived.\"
From a peak in early February of $118.90 dollars a barrel for Brent North Sea crude oil, the European reference, the price of oil fell to $104.00 early this month and stood on Thursday at $105.57 in Asian trading.
To back up its caution on oil prices, the agency pointed in particular to disruptions to crude oil supplies in countries such as Iraq, Libya and Nigeria, and to geopolitical threats in Iran, North Korea and Syria.
It was the third month running that the IEA revised its 2013 demand estimate lower however, from a forecast in January of 90.8 mb/d.
The latest report noted that demand \"remains subdued.\"
\"It has been exceptionally weak in the OECD, notably in Europe, where consumption in 2013 is expected to be the lowest since the 1980s,\" it added in reference to members of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the world\'s most industrialised economies.
\"While growth elsewhere is more robust, global demand came in below expectations in the first quarter of 2013 and our forecast for 2013 has been marginally trimmed\" as a result, the IEA said.
On the supply side, crude oil from OPEC countries fell by 140,000 barrels per day in March to a total of 30.44 mb/d, while oil stocks held by OECD members declined to a total of 2.664 billion barrels at the end of February.
On Wednesday, the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries kept its world oil demand forecast for 2013 virtually unchanged, with China expected to contribute the most to growth.
OPEC expects world demand to reach 89.66 mb/d, with slow growth at the beginning of the year picking up in the second half.
According to the IEA, demand for oil products in China, the world\'s second biggest oil consumer, is forecast to grow by 3.9 percent this year to a total of 9.976 mb/d.
In the United States, demand was expected to dip by a very slight 0.1 percent to 18.58 mb/d.
