SINGAPORE – The world will still need Russian oil to flow to the market despite a price cap, with between 80% to 90% an “encouraging level” to meet demand, the head of the International Energy Agency Fatih Birol said on Tuesday.
Details of a price cap on Russian oil still has many details to iron out, Birol said during the Singapore International Energy Week. The cap is designed to limit Russia’s oil income in response to its invasion of Ukraine.
Birol also said the IEA expects renewable power additions will increase by close to 400 gigawatts in 2022, up by 20% from a year before.
