OPEC raises forecast for 2022 growth in global oil demand

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries on Monday boosted its forecast for 2022 growth in global oil demand to 4.2 million barrels a day, up 900,000 barrels a day from its August projection. OPEC, in a monthly report, said it now expects 2022 global demand of 100.8 million barrels a day, topping pre-pandemic levels.

World oil-demand growth for 2021 was left unchanged at 6 million barrels a day. OPEC said oil demand in the third quarter has been resilient, supported by rising mobility and travel. At the same time, the increased risk of COVID-19 cases has clouded oil demand prospects going into the final quarter, resulting in downward adjustments to fourth-quarter 2021 assessments.

As a result, second-half 2021 oil demand "has been adjusted slightly lower, partially delaying the oil demand recovery into 1H22," the report said. The non-OPEC supply growth forecast for 2022 was left unchanged at 2.9 million barrels a day. OPEC trimmed its 2021 forecast for non-OPEC supply growth by 170,000 barrels a day.
