New warning for oil industry as IEA forecasts greater glut
If OPEC does not manage to seal a deal for cutting output at its meeting later this month, the global supply glut is set to worsen in 2017.

The International Energy Agency reported Thursday that supply was up by 800,000 barrels per day last month to a 97.8 million bpd with a demand growth forecast of 1.2 m/bpd for 2016.

The agency sees demand growing at the same pace for 2017 and warns that prices could fall if a deal between OPEC – and some non-OPEC – members is not achieved.

"If no agreement is reached and some individual members continue to expand their production then the market will remain in surplus throughout the year, with little prospect of oil prices rising significantly higher. Indeed, if the supply surplus persists in 2017 there must be some risk of prices falling back," its statement said.
