The US International Energy Agency warned that global supply will be in short supply. New York futures prices rose slightly on Friday, but fell 1.1% a week. The Paris based International Energy Agency said that although the US crude oil output jumped to 104 thousand barrels last week, the severe situation of Venezuela's energy sector could exacerbate the projected global supply deficit later this year. In spite of this, OPEC and allied producers are continuing to reduce production in order to reduce the global supply oversupply and help push up oil prices.
OPEC forecast: shale oil and gas supply is far ahead of oil supply. OPEC first predicted that the new oil supply from competitors will exceed demand growth this year because of the vigorous development of American industry. According to its monthly market report, OPEC forecasts that the US and other manufacturers will achieve supply growth for fourth months in a row. The prospects show that with the emergence of new products, OPEC and Russia's efforts to cut supply to clear the global supply are reversing. Shale oil is booming in the United States. In January, oil rose to its nearly three year high. With the continuous development of shale industry and the fall in price, the US oil and gas output has reached a record. Nevertheless, the report shows that as most OPEC members have fulfilled their commitments to cut down, OPEC supply restrictions are continuing to reduce global supply oversupply. The remaining oil stocks in the developed countries fell by 85% in the year on year, reaching about 50 million barrels in January.

The International Energy Agency: global oil demand is increasing but far behind supply. According to Reuters, global oil demand is expected to increase this year, but the growth rate of oil supply is accelerating. This led to a sharp increase in inventories in the first quarter of 2018. This year, the International Energy Agency (IEA) raised its forecast for oil demand from 97 million 800 thousand barrels per day in 2017 to 99 million 300 thousand barrels per day. But Venezuela said the economic crisis led to a 50% drop in oil production within two years and the lowest point in more than 10 years, which could still shrink the stock again. In order to reduce inventory, OPEC and Russia and several other manufacturers implemented an agreement to reduce production by about 1 million 800 thousand barrels from January 2017 to the end of 2018.
