- US Energy Information Administration
The EIA website (http://www.eia.gov/) offers some of the best and most comprehensive collections of data. The site is regularly updated with new information.
In addition, DOE experts are constantly developing new tools to track US energy information. It should be noted that most of this data is focused on the United States.
The EIA website covers all types of energy, not just oil.
- Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)
The OPEC website (https://www.opec.org/opec_web/en/) provides a variety of data and forecasts prepared by the organization.
Here are some helpful resources that can be found on the website:
OPEC Annual Statistical Bulletin
Oil Market Monthly Report
World oil forecast
Live broadcast of OPEC events
Press releases and production tables from OPEC and non-OPEC ministerial meetings.
- International Energy Agency
Website: https://www.iea.org/, but Dr. Wald suggests using an Internet search with the keyword “IEA” or “IEA” added. The IEA covers all energy, not just oil.
- S&P Platts
