According to International Energy Agency report published yesterday, the global oil glut will persist in 2016 and the prices will only start to increase in 2017. As per the report the analysts expect global oil supply to grow by 4.1 million barrels per day during 2015-2021, which is lower compared to 11 million barrels per day increase between 2009 and 2015.


“Only in 2017 will we finally see oil supply and demand aligned but the enormous stocks being accumulated will act as a dampener on the pace of recovery in oil prices. It is hard to see oil prices recovering significantly in the short term from the low levels prevailing” written in the report.
