OPEC sees total world oil demand averaging 99.8 million barrels a day in 2018 and 100.88 million barrels a day in 2020.

OPEC, meanwhile, revised down its forecast for non-OPEC oil supply growth by 160,000 barrels day to 1.82 million barrels a day, mainly reflecting downward revisions for the U.S., as well as Norway and the U.K.

For 2020, non-OPEC oil supply growth was revised down by 5,000 barrels a day to 2.2 million barrels a day year-over-year due to downward revisions for Kazakhstan and Russia.
