World oil consumption

WORLD OIL consumption this year has been weaker than expected, and the chances of a significant recovery during 1999 have receded, says the latest monthly report from the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Oil prices resist cuts in output

OIL OUTPUT dropped sharply in July, according to the Middle East Economic Survey. Daily oil output fell by 772,000 barrels, or 2.7 per cent, last month to 27.48 million, but the effect on oil prices was offset by traders' concerns that inventories were ample and demand from Asia weak.

Magazine's curse gives Opec new heart

"HOW LOW can oil prices go?" queried Business Week in its 30 March issue. As low as $10 a barrel, according to analysts polled by the magazine with the knack for featuring a trend just as it is about to end.

Outlook: Opec's gain is our loss

SO you thought OPEC was dead. Judging by last weekend's agreement to reduce oil output, there's life in the old cartel yet; OPEC's ability to manipulate the market to the advantage of producers seems as potent as ever. Indeed, this time round, the world's major oil exporters have surpassed themselves by roping in non OPEC countries too in their bid to remove the oversupply of oil. As a result, this latest initiative seems to stand a better chance of doing the trick than anything else tried in recent times.

Oil prices leap on producers' deal to cut output
