Since its inception in 1983, the IEA's Oil Market Report (OMR) has established itself as one of the world’s most authoritative and timely sources of data, forecasts and analysis on the global oil market – including detailed statistics and commentary on oil supply, demand, inventories, prices and refining activity, as well as oil trade for OECD and an increasing number of non-OECD countries.
The OMR is closely followed by government officials and policy makers, oil market participants, strategic planners, industry officials, academics, NGOs, multi-government organisations, the financial community and others.
The OMR is the exclusive source for official government statistics from all OECD countries, as well as selected non-OECD countries, together with both historical datasets and supply-and-demand forecasts for the year ahead. Featuring tables, graphs and statistics, the OMR provides all the data necessary to perform ad-hoc analysis and track oil market developments and to identify trends in production, consumption, refining, inventories in OECD countries and prices for both crude and products.
The Oil Market Report will be released at 10:00 Paris local time on the following dates:
