Zhoushan (Reuters) – Oil markets have lost 2 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude supply this year due to geopolitical issues, a senior executive at French oil and energy group Total said on Friday at a conference.

The geopolitical issues that led to the crude supply loss include US sanctions on Venezuela and Iran, and supply disruptions in Saudi Arabia and Libya, said Thomas Waymel, the company’s president of trading and shipping.

Oil markets are more concerned with weak demand than tightening supply, he added.
