Crude Oil Futures & News Today

Crude Oil

The global economy strongly influences crude futures prices. For example, a strong global economy creates high demand for crude oil. 

To monitor possible influencers of oil prices, investors should keep an eye out for updates from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), OPEC, and other economic indicators. For short-term traders, the EIA releases Weekly Status Reports — typically on Wednesdays — which track inventories and calculate demand.

Global Demand:

Experts project that global oil demand will reach 101.3 million barrels per day (mb/d) in 2023. However, the growth in demand is expected to decrease to 2.3 mb/d in 2023, compared to 2.6 mb/d in 2022. 

The reduction in demand growth can be attributed to the downturn in the global economy, partially caused by China’s zero-COVID-19 restrictions and inflationary pressures in economies worldwide.

Global Supply:

With a total crude oil production of approximately 29.77 mb/d, OPEC holds just less than 30% of the global supply of crude oil. Consequently, the decisions made by OPEC have a significant impact on the energy markets. In contrast, U.S. crude oil production averages around 11.5 mb/d.

According to experts, global supply growth for non-OPEC countries is projected to decline by 0.4 mb/d to 1.5 mb/d in 2023. As of September 2022, the average oil production for OPEC-13 was 29.77 mb/d.
