The Barrel blog at Platts.com says that unconventional (shale) oil is creating less interdependence globally.

Margaret McQuaile writes: "The (International Energy Agency),  in its latest medium-term outlook, believes the world oil map will be deeply transformed over the next five years as regional shifts in demand and new sources of supply growth continue to reshape the global refining industry and as crude trade becomes increasingly split between the western hemisphere and the rest of the world.

"Thanks to surging production of non-conventional oil in Canada and the US, North America will move closer to balance after having been a large importer, the IEA says. And the changing quality of US domestic crude production means that most of the light, sweet grades previously imported from West Africa and elsewhere will no longer be needed."
