CRUDE OIL SUPPLY AND TANKER DEMAND

The aim of this report is to explain the existing relationship between crude oil supply and tanker demand and to examine the likely effects that an expansion in short-haul crude oil trades will have on this relationship. Section 1 examines world oil production and consumption in 1977 and the inroads that the recent expansion in short-haul movements have already made into the long-haul trades of the more traditional, marginal producers. Section 2 reviews the future development plans of the major oil producers and estimates from this data the potential changes in production levels over the period 1978-1985 whilst Section 3 inspects these changes and their likely repercussions in tanker demand.
