It also provides accurate and timely statistical data on the global petroleum industry as a whole.

On its part, the OPEC World Oil Outlook provides a platform from which to review, analyse and evaluate scenarios as to how the oil scene may develop. It is a further affirmation of OPEC’s commitment to creating forums that encourage and hopefully, aid dialogue and co-operation amongst all stakeholders.
