World Oil Supply
Non-OPEC oil supply in 2016 is presently anticipated that would shrink by 0.61 mb/d, taking after an upward modification of 0.18 mb/d from the August MOMR to normal 56.32 mb/d. This has been chiefly because of a lower-than-anticipated decrease in US tight oil and a superior thanexpected execution in Norway, and the promising start-up of Kashagan field in Kazakhstan. In 2017, non-OPEC supply was reconsidered up by 0.35 mb/d to show development of 0.20 mb/d to normal of 56.52 mb/d, for the most part because of new generation from Kashagan.

August to 33.24 mb/d.
Item Markets and Refining Operations Product advertises in the Atlantic Basin reinforced in August. Refining edges were bolstered by the positive execution at the highest point of the barrel because of solid fuel request and fare chances to the EU, and worries about climate disturbances
from typhoons and flooding in the US Gulf Coast. In Asia, edges demonstrated a slight recuperation on the back of firm request and falling inventories in front of pre-winter support.
Grimy tanker spot cargo rates stayed under weight in August, with negative advancements among all classes. VLCC, Suexmax and Aframax spot cargo rates declined by 12%, 30% and 14% since July. The drop in rates was essentially determined by overabundance tonnage supply because of new conveyances when freight stacking prerequisites stay restricted.

Rough and item inventories indicated surpluses of 200 mb and 141 mb, separately.
