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.
