Tanker Shipping - Record high global oil demand not enough to create sustainable rates.

09 October 2011

Global oil demand has never been higher, despite recent revisions. Demand is driven by growth in Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and FSU, while requirements in North America and EU are contracting in 2011 as well as in 2012. The IEA has revised down its demand outlook by 0.2 million barrels per day (mb/d) for 2011 to reach 89.3 and by 0.4 mb/d for 2012 to reach 90.7. Growth outlook now stands at a modest 1.1% in 2011 and 1.6% in 2012.
