“We forecast that global consumption will grow by an average of 2.1 million barrels per day throughout 2022 and by an average of 2 million barrels per day in 2023. As a result of high global natural gas prices, we have raised our forecast for oil consumption in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023 as electricity suppliers, especially in Europe, may switch to petroleum-based generating fuels.

The materials of the Ministry of Energy specify that in 2022 the demand for oil will amount to 99.53 million barrels against 99.43 million barrels per day, predicted earlier. Accordingly, the assessment increased by 0.1%. At the same time, in 2023, the forecast was revised upwards by only 10,000 barrels: from 101.49 million to 101.5 million.
