The global oversupply of oil will persist through next year, according to the International Energy Agency, as growth in demand slows and OPEC producers maintain high output.

The Paris-based agency which advises industrialised nations on energy policy adds that the anticipated arrival of barrels from Iran – if international sanctions are eased – are likely to keep the market oversupplied.
