Recent years have drawn less demand for the heating oil as consumers may use alternative heating. While OPEC has decreased production, the inventories of energy products remain at highs. Refineries are expected to increase production of energy products by 800,000 b/d from Q2 to 81.1 million b/d according to the IEA . Refining should peak in August and decline in September thru October.
