Arab Today, arab today Saudi: oil price slump should not stop investment

Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi urges sustained investment in new output capacity despite the slump in world prices
Manama - AFP

Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi called for sustained investment in new output capacity Thursday despite the slump in world prices.

Naimi said global production lost four million barrels per day due to natural depreciation and predicted an increase in demand of one million bpd.

"The oil industry is required to add new production capacity of 5.0 million bpd to compensate for the natural loss in production and meet the growth in global demand," he told an energy conference in Manama.

"Large investments are required to meet such needs. We must continue and even increase the pace of investments in the energy sector."

Oil prices have slumped by more than 50 percent since the middle of last year amid a worldwide supply glut, prompting the cancellation of a string of major investment projects.

Analysts have said the excess supplies are likely to stretch well into 2016.
