Co-hosted by SRMG Think and the Middle East Institute at the Yale Club on Friday, the forum’s theme was “Unlocking the region’s potential for prosperity, security and a sustainable global future.”

SVB International, a consultant, estimates Iran's oil production increased in August to 3.15 million barrels per day (bpd), the highest since 2018, with crude oil and condensate exports at just under 2 million bpd. "Iran is on the path to recover its pre-sanctions oil production," said SVB's Sara Vakhshouri. Three other trackers contacted by Reuters had similar estimates.

"Sanctions are in place but perhaps they are not fully implemented or monitored," said Sara Vakhshouri of SVB, who has previously said during Biden's term there hasn't been any serious crackdown or action against Iran's oil exports. "Also all of these supply volumes are in the dark market, where there is no transparency and so they are not reflected in formal global supply and export data."

Iran is shipping the most crude in almost five years, fortifying its re-emergence on the geopolitical stage while posing risks for a fragile global crude market. Exports have surged to the highest level since US sanctions were re-imposed in 2018, according to a range of analysts including Kpler Ltd., SVB Energy International, FGE and the International Energy Agency. The vast majority is flowing to China, as the world’s biggest importer scoops up cut-price barrels from the Islamic Republic.

Energy consultant SVB International said Iran’s crude exports in December averaged 1.137 million barrels per day, up 42,000 bpd from November and the highest 2022 figure SVB has reported based on estimates given earlier. “In comparison to the Trump administration, there hasn’t been any serious crackdown or action against Iran’s oil exports,” said Sara Vakhshouri of SVB. “January exports were so far strong like previous months.” “Lower Chinese demand and Russia’s supply to China have been a major challenge for them. Most of its oil still goes to the Far East, ultimately China. Iran also helps Venezuela to export its oil.”

خبراء يتحدثون لـ"الطاقة" عن أسواق النفط في 2023
Attaqa- January 1, 2023
ترى رئيسة شركة "إس في بي إنرجي إنترناشيونال"، الدكتورة سارة فاخشوري، أن أسواق الطاقة تستقبل العام
الجديد وما زالت حالة من عدم اليقين تشوب العرض والطلب. وأوضحت، في تصريحات خاصة إلى منصة الطاقة، أن هناك العديد من العوامل التي تضفي شكوكًا على الطلب العالمي على الطاقة؛ أهمها سياسة "كوفيد" أو جائحة كورونا والتعافي في الصين، وتأثير التباطؤ الاقتصادي العالمي ومخاطر الركود المحتمل. أما من ناحية العرض؛ فقد قالت فاخشوري إن إمدادات النفط والغاز بالسوق ما زالت تغذي حالة عدم اليقين، مؤكدة أن حلول أوبك ورد فعلها على أساسيات السوق عاملٌ آخر من شأنه أن يؤثر في الأسواق. وتابعت: "من المرجّح أن يكون الطلب ضعيفًا خلال 2023، أو خلال النصف الأول من العام على أقل تقدير".
