(A steal!) It stings even more knowing that the International Energy Agency said Monday that the US would likely overtake Russian Federation to become the world's largest oil producer by 2023, the result of crude production predicted to reach 12.1 million barrels per day. At 425.9 million barrels, USA crude oil inventories are in the lower half of the average range for this time of year, which should stimulate optimism despite a consistent growth in production in the shale patch and upcoming refinery maintenance season that will certainly affect inventories.
The EIA raised its production estimate for 2018 again late Tuesday and now expects US crude oil production to climb by 1.4 million barrels a day.
Economic growth in Asia and a resurgent USA petrochemicals industry should lead to a 6.9 million b/d increase in oil demand by 2023 to 104.7 million b/d, according to the IEA. Non-OPEC growth is so strong that the oil market will change for years, he said. The main reason for a slowdown in U.S. shipments to Asia is likely the narrowing discount of benchmark U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) to Brent, the light crude grade used as a price marker for the rest of the world.
This strategy worked to some extent as many shale companies went broke, but the fiscal pain became too great for Saudi Arabia, and they worked with other OPEC members and Russian Federation to take supplies off the market to support prices.
Barkindo said the OPEC side wanted to learn how the Americans were able to use technology, cuts costs, and still boost productivity.

The IEA forecasts that overall United States production gains will represent 60% of new global output to 2023. On the other hand, lower inventories and higher prices triggered another shale oil boom in the USA.

However, the state-run media did not mention the issue of denuclearization or dialogue between the United States and North Korea. Later this week, the delegation is scheduled to travel to the U.S.to brief officials on the outcome of the North-South talks.

United States crude production is projected to surge to 12.1 million B/D by 2023 amid "a second wave" of shale output increases, making the country the world's largest oil producer, according to the International Energy Agency's latest 5-year market forecast.
Oil has recently tended to move in tandem with the equity market.
"With limited additional demand for these volumes in the domestic refining system, future US production will need to clear into export markets", Wood Mackenzie's chief economist Ed Rawle said in a release Monday. Trump claimed that it was a move to "protect United States industry". "If you are a shale-oil producer, who brought you back?"
China is forecast to remain the main engine of global demand growth.
For all of 2018, the EIA estimates US crude production will average 10.7 million barrels a day. "It does appear as if we need more evidence that the rebalance continues to really ignite a rally again". The investment yielded four billion barrels of crude, condensate and NGLs globally - not since the 1930s was so little oil found. It is also expected to rise by 2.7 million barrels per day to 12.1 million barrels per day by 2023.
While oil stocks typically rise this time of year as refineries frequently close for maintenance, an increase in US crude inventories has weighed on prices.
The EIA said on Tuesday it expects US crude output in the fourth quarter of 2018 to reach an average of 11.17 million bpd, up from the previous forecast a month ago of 11.04 million bpd.
