The oil market saw a fairly notable surplus in the first half of 2019, a much larger increase than initially expected. Looking ahead, supplies are scheduled to contract in the final half of the year; however, it could only be a hiatus before the oversupply returns.
Global oil supply surpassed demand by about 0.9 million barrels per day (BPD) in the first six months of 2019, as reported by the International Energy Agency (IEA). “This surplus adds to the huge stock builds seen in the second half of 2018 when oil production surged just as demand growth started to falter,” said the IEA said. “Market tightness is not an issue for the time being and any re-balancing seems to have moved further into the future.”
The continuation of the OPEC+ cuts through March of 2020 eliminates a major conjecture, but the IEA said it “does not change the fundamental outlook of an oversupplied market.”

The conclusions echo those of OPEC itself, which said in its report published a day earlier that the “call on OPEC” will be significantly lower next year. Growing U.S. shale production will exceed additional demand through 2020, which means that the market could see a significant surplus in months to come.
In other words, OPEC faces the puzzling question of whether they should keep its current production cut deal intact, or cut even deeper to avoid supply glut.
