The 2017 OPEC World Oil Outlook (WOO) will be presented at a press conference to be held at the OPEC Secretariat on Tuesday, 7 November 2017.
The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) stated in a statement that OPEC’s Secretary General, HE Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, and senior members of management will present the key messages from the publication, which provides an in-depth review and analysis of the global oil industry, and offers a thorough assessment of various sensitivity cases related to the economy, and supply and demand trends in the medium- and long-term.
According to OPEC, for the third year in a row, a comprehensive interactive version of the WOO will also be made available. More details on this will be provided when the publication is launched.
The Secretary General, senior management and other OPEC staff will be available after the presentations to answer questions.
First published in 2007, the WOO provides expert analysis of the many challenges and opportunities facing the global oil industry.
It serves as an important reference tool, providing insights into the upstream and downstream, as well as issues related to costs, investments, and the potential impact of policies and new technologies.
Alongside the Annual Statistical Bulletin, it is one of OPEC’s flagship annual publications.
