Vienna, Austria
30 Jul 2007

The 2006 edition of the OPEC Annual Statistical Bulletin (ASB) will be published on Tuesday, 31 July 2007, at 16:00 (CET).

The ASB is a comprehensive and detailed statistical record of the oil and gas activities of OPEC’s 12 Member Countries – Algeria, Angola, Indonesia, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Alongside its emphasis on OPEC Member Countries, the Bulletin provides accurate and wide-ranging statistics on the global petroleum industry as a whole. The publication also offers an analysis of the performance of the major international oil companies.

As in previous editions, the 2006 ASB is available in different formats – a hard copy, a PDF format and an interactive CD-ROM, which will be attached to the inside front cover of the hard copy. The PDF version and the interactive CD-ROM can also be accessed through the OPEC website www.opec.org.

The ASB provides reliable historical data, which forms a sound base for any far-reaching analysis and study on OPEC’s activities. It further enhances the publication’s status as the most complete source of available oil and gas statistics in the Organization and its Member Countries.

Moreover, to further enhance the content and packaging of the ASB, additional graphs have been added. The publication has also been redesigned, with the aim of making it more user-friendly and accessible.

The official launch of the ASB will take place at 10:00 (CET) on 13 September 2007, at the OPEC Secretariat.
