OPEC’s Annual Statistical Bulletin to be launched on 28 June 2022

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will launch the 2022 edition of its Annual Statistical Bulletin (ASB) on Tuesday, 28 June 2022, at 10:00 (CEST) at the OPEC Secretariat in Vienna, Austria. The event will be held in a hybrid format.

The publication and its key highlights will be presented by OPEC Secretary General, HE Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, followed by a presentation and a panel discussion with key analysts and experts involved in producing the ASB. A video featuring the publication’s highlights will also be shown during the launch. Dr Jakob Müllner, Associate Professor and Academic Director at the WU Executive Academy, the sponsor of the launch, will deliver remarks at the event’s opening.

First published in 1965, the ASB, one of the Organization’s flagship publications, continues to provide a broad range of statistics and figures on the global energy industry, particularly focusing on oil and natural gas, in addition to major key economic indicators, serving as a leading source of reliable data for officials, policymakers, industry experts, analysts, researchers, members of academia and other stakeholders. The publication features comprehensive annual data on the global oil and gas supply chain, particularly on OPEC’s 13 Member Countries.

The Secretary General said: “It is my utmost pleasure to announce the launch event of the 57th edition of OPEC’s Annual Statistical Bulletin. This flagship publication continues to serve as a key reference tool for the global energy industry and beyond.

“This year’s ASB comes at a time of heightened uncertainty in the energy markets and thus it will be an essential tool in helping meet the industry’s growing need for transparent, accurate and reliable data.”

The publication will be available as an interactive version and a PDF on the OPEC website, as well as through a smart app compatible with iOS and Android platforms. Further details in this regard will be available following the launch.

Members of the press are invited to attend the launch virtually provided that they register in advance by submitting a request, along with a copy of the press credential, to webeditor@opec.org.
