UAE minister says global oil supply glut is almost gone

ABU DHABI (Reuters) – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) energy minister Suhail bin Mohammed al-Mazrouei said on Monday the global oil supply glut was almost gone.

Addressing the ADIPEC oil conference in Abu Dhabi, he said: “The glut is almost gone … I think we are at the bottom of this cycle…”

He added: “What concerns you and us (is) that we need to continue investing in this industry… to ensure we don’t see a huge spike 3-4 years from now.”

The Secretary-General of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Mohammed Barkindo said consultations between OPEC and non-OPEC producers would continue in coming days and weeks, and he believed it was vital that producers in both camps came together.
