Some interesting information on changes in oil prices, supply, and
production from OECD's IEA


Brent and WTI crude prices fell more than $4.50 in September from end-August
levels due to weaker gasoline, rising Iraqi supplies, more comfortable
product stocks and refinery maintenance. OPEC’s production target cut
stemmed the decline. WTI ended the month at $29.41/bbl, $2.45 lower than end
August.

fallen 14%, Norway's has continuously increased and is now double the 1990
level.  Total North Sea output 2001 was less than 2% below the 1999 peak.
