The 2011 edition of OPEC's World Oil Outlook (WOO) and the 2010/2011 Annual Statistical Bulletin (ASB) will be officially presented at a Press Conference to be held at the OPEC Secretariat on Tuesday, 8 November, at 14:30 hours CET.

Recognized as the flagship publications of the Organization, the WOO is an annual in-depth analytical review of various scenarios for the short-, medium- and long-term of the oil industry. It was first published in 2007.

The publication has become an important reference tool, providing critical analysis of a range of issues, including supply and demand, investments, policies and environmental considerations. Making use of different scenarios, the WOO maps out some of the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. This year also sees an extension of the timeframe for the Outlook to 2035, from 2030 last year.

The ASB, now in its 46th year, provides detailed time-series data on many aspects of the global petroleum industry, including exports, imports, as well as exploration, production and transportation activities, focusing especially on OPEC's Member Countries.

The interactive version of the publication, which also incorporates a complete PDF file, has been available on-line since July.

OPEC's Secretary General and members of management will be available after the presentation to answer questions.

All journalists and analysts who wish to attend the presentations are asked to visit the OPEC website for accreditation: http://www.opec.org/opec_web/en/press_room/309.htm.
