VIENNA, January 18. /TASS/. World oil demand is estimated to have increased by 1.54 mln barrels daily in 2015 to average 92.92 mln barrels per day, OPEC said on Monday in the Monthly Report.
In 2016, oil demand growth is expected to be around 1.26 mln barrels daily, marginally higher than in the previous report, to average 94.17 million barrels a day, OPEC says.
Non-OPEC oil supply growth in 2015 now stands at 1.23 mln barrels daily, following an upward revision of 0.23 mln barrels a day.
