Oil & Gas Market overview
The demand for oil and gas is strongly linked to the strength of the global economy. For that reason, projected economic growth is considered an indicator of the future demand for our products and services. The global economy continued to recover in 2010 from the recession of late 2008 and early 2009 that was triggered by the severe financial Crisis in the USA and Europe. The contours of the global recovery, however, have differed significantly across countries. Most emerging markets weathered well the global downturn and grew robustly in 2010, with output in China and India growing by 10.3% and 9.7% respectively. In contrast, the USA and the euro area saw output grow by 2.8% and 1.8%, respectively; this was not sufficiently rapid to bring down high unemployment rates
