    Key points

    Iran increased oil output by 300,000 barrels a day this year to a four-year high of 3.2 million a day in February.

    Iran’s return to the market has been less dramatic than the Iranians said it would be.

    Oil prices supported by possible producer output action, supply outages in Iraq, Nigeria, UAE.

    Prices also supported by signs of non-OPEC supply fall, steady demand forecast, weak US dollar.

    Sees US Oil production falling by 530,000 bpd in 2016

    Leaves 2016 global Oil demand growth estimate unchanged at 1.17 mln bpd or 1.2 pct
