The total demand for petroleum products will peak in 2035, about 107 million barrels per day; between 2035-50, oil demand will drop by 10%, reaching 96 million barrels per day in 2050. It is worth noting that with the slowdown in the replacement of road transportation fuel demand, global oil demand will stabilize in the late 1940s, and the year-on-year decline will fall from 1.3 million barrels per day in 2041 to 2050. 400,000 barrels per day. At the same time, the decline in oil production from existing oil and gas wells will far exceed the shrinking rate of future oil demand, which means that the oil and gas industry will still need a large amount of upstream investment to develop new wells before and after 2050 to support global oil demand.
