Global oil demand improves but slowdown still forecast for 2017: IEA

Oil jumped as the International Energy Agency said OPEC had achieved record initial compliance of 90 percent with their cuts agreement, while demand grew faster than expected. Saudi Arabia, the IEA said, appeared to cut more than was agreed on at the meeting with some key non-OPEC members in November. At the same time, OPEC's production cut overall was partly offset by growing deliveries of Libya and Nigeria not required to cut production according to the agreement terms.
The IEA increased its estimates of 2016 world oil demand growth for a third month, and boosted its outlook for 2017, anticipating an increase of 1.4 million barrels a day this year. "Non-OPEC members have also started cutting output and we hope they will quickly get to the figures they have committed to reach", he said.

The oil market would be re-balanced when global inventories, now near record highs, approached their five-year average level, Al Sada said.
Russian Federation said it would phase in its share of the cut gradually rather than in the first month of the agreement and in January lowered supply by 100,000 bpd. A 1.2 million barrel per day cut to OPEC production for the entire year would result in global supply of around 96 million barrels per day.
This includes about 300 million barrels from the OECD and 100 million barrels from non-OECD.
