The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has increased the oil demand growth outlook for 2018 by 1.53 mln barrels per day, up by around 20,000 bpd from the projection it made in December.

For 2018, the forecast for global economic growth has been kept unchanged at 3.7%, OPEC said in a monthly report. Production by OPEC rose by 42,000 bpd to 32.42 mln bpd in November as Nigeria, Angola, and Algeria pumped more oil.

The lower prices were prompted by a recovery in U.S. oil production after a recent drop, as well as by an expected fall in demand. U.S. crude oil production stood at 9.75 million barrels per day (bpd) on Jan. 12, data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed. Output had fallen to 9.49 million barrels at the start of the year, due largely to a cold snap that shut down some production.

The supply cuts by OPEC and its allies, which are scheduled to last throughout 2018, were aimed at tightening the market to prop up prices. In the United States, crude inventories fell 6.9 million barrels in the week to Jan. 12, to 412.65 million barrels.  – Neal Bhai Reports
