  • A review of demand prospects for LNG as a marine fuel

    By: Chris N Le Fevre

    The growing level of interest displayed in LNG as a marine fuel, driven by both environmental restrictions and economic attractiveness means usage is certain to grow. There is, however, less certainty over the pace and scale of demand growth. This in part is due to the relatively poor data quality on marine fuel usage but […]

  • Gasoline Demand in Transport in Non-OECD Asia

    By: Anupama Sen , Michal Meidan , Miswin Mahesh

    From 2000-2015, while OECD countries’ oil demand decreased by roughly 3 million barrels per day (mb/d), demand in non-OECD countries grew by around 21 mb/d. This represents an ongoing structural shift in oil demand dynamics that is characterised by two key developments: first, the rapid growth in China’s oil consumption from 2000-13, and second, the […]

  • Gasoline Demand in Non-OECD Asia: Drivers and Constraints

    By: Anupama Sen , Michal Meidan , Miswin Mahesh

    Global oil demand is undergoing a structural shift. This is broadly reflected in changing demand dynamics over the last 15 years. While OECD demand decreased by 3 million barrels per day (mb/d) from 2000-15, demand in non-OECD countries grew by 21 mb/d (IEA, 2015). This shift is characterised by two developments: first, the rapid growth […]

  • Energy Efficiency – Should We Take It Seriously?

    By: Malcolm Keay

    In this Paper, Malcolm Keay looks at governments’ uncritical reliance on energy efficiency to achieve multiple energy policy objectives.  He concludes that most existing programmes are ill-directed, badly monitored and probably ineffective in reducing energy demand and emissions – indeed they may be diverting attention from more effective measures.  A more targeted approach is needed […]

  • OIES Review of Energy Costs

    By: Philip Barnes

    Those who either from want of knowledge or from interested motives advocate the universal adoption of oil fuel in place of coal generally claim that it would be quite possible to supply oil of the necessary quality at 30s or 35s a ton, and that oil as a fuel is worth twice as much as […]
