The presentation looks holistically at the impact of the drop in oil prices on top 10 leading oil-exporting countries as well as top 10 oil-importing countries.

Oil Importing Countries Impacted

- The share of total imports of oil and gas by the top importing countries is more than half of the total world imports ( % in 2014).
- In 2014, the US imported around US $ Billion worth of oil and gas (O&G) followed by China with imports worth US $ Billion making them the largest importers of hydrocarbon products.
