The International Energy Agency (IEA) recently projected that the Oil market would reach equilibrium, in terms of supply and demand, by 2017. This projection, amongst other factors, led to rising Oil prices. Yet it has now been revised. The IEA now expects that demand will now remain unchanged, meaning that a they don´t expect improvement in world economic activity. Supply and demand should remain unchanged, meaning that the current over supply of Oil will also remain. The IEA has not given a projection, as when the current supply glut is expected to end. Currently worldwide production of Oil stands at 97 million Barrels per day. Worldwide inventories of Oil in OECD countries, has reached 3.1 billion barrels, never reaching such levels before.
