(OPEC) is a cartel of twelve developing countries made ..

It is clear that strong demand growth in 2017, alongside a modest increase last year in non-OPEC output, and the cuts made by leading producers, has contributed to the extraordinarily rapid fall in OECD oil stocks. A year ago, they were 264 mb above the five-year average and now they are only 52 mb in excess of it, with stocks of oil products actually below the benchmark. Although the OECD is not the whole world, the leading oil producers who agreed to cut output identified the level of the group’s stocks as an indicator of the progress of their initiative. With the surplus having shrunk so dramatically, the success of the output agreement might be close to hand. This, however, is not necessarily the case: oil price rises have come to a halt and gone into reverse, and, according to our supply/demand balance, so might the decline in oil stocks, at least in the early part of this year.

"The Secretariat carries out the executive functions of the Organization in accordance with the provisions of the OPEC Statute and under the direction of the Board of Governors. It provides the Conference with support facilities; carries out research into energy, economics and finance; prepares reports and statistics; provides information on the Organization and its activities through various publications; receives visitors from different parts of the world; and organizes seminars, briefings and lectures. The Secretariat is equipped with an excellent library, and serves officials from Member Countries (MCs) as well as researchers, scholars and students from MCs and elsewhere.

In Developing countries, the picture is rather different. The massive increase in the car fleet would, all other things being equal, increase sectoral demand by 26.4 mb/d over the forecast period. Increasing efficiency, changing driving behaviour and the penetration of alternative fuel vehicles, particularly EVs in China and India, will only partially curb demand growth.

THE RATIONALE FOR OPEC - Energy: a Global Outlook - 4

This month’s OMR is abbreviated to allow time for us to complete our annual five-year outlook that will be published in our report Oil 2018 on 5 March. Meanwhile, new and revised data shows a modest tightening of the balance in the early part of 2018, but the main message remains unchanged from last month and it is very clear: in 2018, fast rising production in non-OPEC countries, led by the US, is likely to grow by more than demand. For now, the upward momentum that drove the price of Brent crude oil to $70/bbl has stalled; partly due to investors taking profits, but also as part of the corrections we have seen recently in many markets. Most importantly, the underlying oil market fundamentals in the early part of 2018 look less supportive for prices.

The evolution of energy markets over time is significantly impacted by government policies, which are used as mechanisms to stimulate change beyond purely market-driven forces. The current trend is expected to lead toward a long-term global convergence that focuses on energy efficiency and the increased adoption of clean modes of energy, including renewables. Moreover, policies are also expected in terms of energy poverty eradication measures in developing countries.

Opec And Its Influence On Oil Prices

The size of the global economy in 2040 is estimated to be 226% that of 2016. Developing countries are estimated to account for three-quarters of the global GDP growth over the forecast
period. Furthermore, one of every two additional $ (2011 purchasing power parity (PPP)) of GDP is expected to come from China and India.
