DAVOS, Jan 25 (PRIME) -- Global demand for crude is to increase by 20 million barrels in the next 25 years, Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources of Saudi Arabia Khalid Al-Falih said at the World Economic Forum late on Wednesday.
УI would like to remind you that in 2014, 2015 and 2016 the world lost more than U.S. $1 trillion of investment in the oil industryЕ That is why joint efforts to rebalance the market have been made. This is the first result, investment increased 6% in 2017 for the first time,Ф he said.
The International Energy Agency earlier projected demand to rise 12% to 104.9 barrels per day until 2040.
