The Petrologica Oil Demand Simulator (PODS)

Our PODS tool forecasts future world GDP, oil intensity and demand for oil over the next five years. Based on historical data to 2008 and projected data from 2009 onwards, the simulator can give you an indication of what will happen to the world economy and oil demand in the medium term.

Like all Petrologica simulators, you can adjust various key factors to customise your forecast, and to understand better the nature of the forecasts. You may adjust the growth rates for different groups of nations, and the changes in oil intensity, or the efficiency with which oil is used by nations. In addition to world forecasts, you can also view data for a number of key advanced and developing nations.
