Oil price drops more than US$1on IEA warning of shrinking demand

The largest disruptive force to supply will be shale production in the United States - the IEA estimates USA crude oil will reach peak output in the 2020s of around 17m bpd.

The IEA also today released its latest World Energy Outlook, in which it said global oil demand will fall modestly due to the rise in electric cars.

The US Energy Information Administration estimated that the US became the world's top petroleum and natural gas producer in 2012. But the expected increase would put the US further into uncharted territory.

The International Energy Agency on the other hand is saying that global oil demand growth is likely to increase more slowly over the coming months, doubling down on their previous underestimation demand, because of their prediction that warmer temperatures will cut consumption, which may tilt the market back into surplus in the first half of next year. The country is expected to account for 80 per cent of the increase in global supply over the same period.

Chelsea could sign Goretzka as he sets his sights on PL move
Any deal to sign Goretzka could open the door for Philippe Coutinho to leave Anfield for Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain, though. They even claim the Reds have a January agreement to sign the midfielder.

The IEA, which tracks the energy for 29 countries, said the United States - once reliant on imports - is becoming the "undisputed global oil and gas leader".

American shale producers have been forced to endure a collapse that sent crude prices from $100 a barrel in 2014 to a low of $26 in 2016.

"Electric vehicles (EVs) are in the fast lane as a result of government support and declining battery costs but it is far too early to write the obituary of oil, as growth for trucks, aviation, petrochemicals, shipping and aviation keep pushing demand higher".

The report includes several caveats: While the USA will become a major exporter of light crude and refined products, it will remain a major importer of heavier crude oil that is used in many of its refineries.

The DA said in a statement yesterday police were called to the scene for "possible gunshots" and came upon cars leaving the area. Fall River police responded to a city industrial park for reports of "loud bangs and smoking cars" at about 11:37 p.m.

Hurricane Harvey contributed to a sharp decline in industry stocks held in developed nations grouped together in the OECD, the IEA said, adding this contributed to worldwide oil stocks seeing a quarterly decline for only the second time in the past two years.

"There could be further surprises ahead", the IEA said.

The report says that global energy demand is expected to grow 30 percent by 2040 and that demand for oil is not expected to peak until 2040.

In the USA, the report assumes that improvements in fuel economy standards for cars and trucks will help reduce demand for oil.

The acquisition was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through this link . Shares repurchase plans are generally an indication that the company's board of directors believes its stock is undervalued.

"Yet this is precisely what is happening as a result of the USA shale revolution - both for oil and for natural gas", the IEA said.
