Rystad Energy has laid bare a potential shortage of shuttle tankers as oil volumes rise to 2030.

Demand in countries with robust offshore production and limited pipeline infrastructure is set to grow continuously in the coming years, a report from the research company claims.

Produced volumes in need of transport will grow to 3.3bn barrels per year before the end of the decade, jumping 32% from 2.5bn barrels in 2021, Rystad's figures show.
