OPEC Production Stagnates In April

The OPEC charts below were created with data from the OPEC Monthly Oil Market Report. The PDF File can be downloaded from here: OPEC MOMR All OPEC data is through April 2018 and is in thousand barrels per day.

There was little change in OPEC production in April.

OPEC production was  up 12,000 barrels per day in April but that was after February production had been revised down by 74,000 bpd and March production revised down by 39,000 bpd.

OPEC has total liquids at 97,890,000 barrels per day. The EIA has C+C, for the last six months that they have data, about 16,500,000 barrels per day below that figure. I wonder how accurate that figure is for total NGLs?

The data here is from the Russian Minister of Energy and is through April 2018. It is crude+condensate. Production in April was almost flat, down 5,000 bpd. Data from the Russian Minister of Energy averages about 400,000 barrels per day above what the EIA reports for Russia.

All the following data is from the EIA and is through January 2018.

There is no doubt that China has peaked. It is also consuming a lot more oil. So as production goes down imports will go up a lot faster.

The EIA says Canadian C+C production was down 348,000 bpd in January.

U.S. C+C production was up only slightly in January, 6,000 bpd, but still down 102,000 bpd from an all-time high of 10,066,000 barrels per day in November 2017.
