Yamaguchi, N. Growth in Middle East oil markets continues in face of political uncertainties Oil and Gas Journal, 11th August 2003, 101(31) p.

The Middle East, despite many political events, will continue to demand more refined products and produce these products with more-stringent specifications. Armed conflict, continued violence, and a transition in Iraqi leadership have combined to make events in the Middle East more unpredictable than normal.
Total oil product demand will increase around 124,000 b/d/year until 2010. The demand pattern has shifted slightly away from fuel oil and jet fuel in favor of gasoline. Iranian gasoline demand, in particular, has grown rapidly.
