Government, world crude consumption grew by an estimated 1.3 million barrels per day in 2013 to a record-high level of 90.4 million barrels per day. The agency, in its most recent Short-Term Energy Outlook, said that it expects global oil demand growth by another 1.1 million barrels per day in 2014. But importantly, the EIAs latest report assumes that world supply is likely to outpace consumption growth and go up by 1.5 million barrels per day in 2014. In our view, crude prices in the next few months are likely to exhibit a sideways-to-bearish trend, mostly trading in the $90-$100 per barrel range.

Also, easing geopolitical worries in Ukraine and in Iraq further quelled oil supply worries, supporting the downturn. Can the Slide Continue? The sharp sell-off in crude oil prices, however, took a breather recently on some bargain hunting by investors and on news that OPEC, which accounts for 40% of the world’s oil supply, could trim output to reduce a global supply glut. OPEC Secretary General Abdullah al-Badri recently stated that the group expects to reduce its 2015 output target to 29.5 million barrels per day (bpd) from 30 million bpd when it next meets in late November. If true, this would mark the first cut by the cartel since 2008. Experts also believe that the slide in oil prices is temporary and that it will start consolidating soon as many OPEC countries require oil prices to stay above the $100 a barrel mark to meet their budget requirements .
