Opec spare oil capacity

OPEC’s policy has, indeed, ensured that the trend of ample production and sufficient spare capacity will continue for years to come, benefiting producers and consumers alike and enhancing stability. OPEC capacity growth is underpinned by over 130 E&P projects, 50 per cent of which are with International Oil Companies (IOCs). OPEC, Russia and several other producers recently agreed to increase output by 1 million barrels in order to ease oil prices away from 3½-year highs. But many external observers think they will struggle to add that much supply because only a handful of the Middle-East dominated countries have spare capacity. Oil draws support from fears of tight supply resulting from OPEC output cuts and U.S. sanctions on Venezuela and Iran. We now know that OPEC has that spare capacity: Pro. Power Lunch.

Energy Aspects has said it expects OPEC spare capacity to fall to below 1 million bpd in the fourth quarter from two million bpd in the second quarter of 2019. GRAPHIC: OPEC oil production Consultancy Energy Aspects has said it expects OPEC spare capacity to fall to below 1 million bpd in the fourth quarter from two million bpd in the second quarter of 2019. The U.S. State Department has lashed out against OPEC, accusing the cartel of hiding 1.42 million bpd in spare oil production capacity, S&P Global Platts reports, citing a statement sent to it by the State Department. The Middle East country, which holds OPEC’s biggest spare capacity, says it can lift supplies to 12.5 million barrels a day if needed. That’s almost 2.5 million barrels a day higher than now, and a level that’s never been tested.

– Next few years point to a strong increase in non-OPEC supply and OPEC capacity – OPEC spare capacity expected to continue to rise in the medium term – The required OPEC crude is likely to drop or remain flat at best until 2009 – Strong collaboration between non-OPEC and OPEC a must for future market stability OPEC has spare oil capacity ranging between 3-3.5 million b/d, with two thirds of that figure present in Gulf countries, the secretary general of the organization, Mohammad Barkindo, told reporters last week. The EIA, using a tighter definition, estimates global spare production capacity at 1.63 million b/d, all held by OPEC's Middle East members. Energy Aspects forecasts OPEC spare capacity to fall to around 920,000 bpd in the fourth quarter from 2.05 million bpd in the second quarter and 1.4 million bpd in the third quarter.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates, OPEC countries have a combined 2.7 million bpd of spare production capacity, of which 60 percent is in Saudi Arabia.
