The United States has accused China of interfering with oil and gas drilling operations off the coast of Vietnam in the disputed waters of the South China Sea. This is the latest indication that bilateral relations have a long way to go before they are mended. “The United States is deeply concerned that China is continuing its interference with Vietnam’s longstanding oil and gas activities in Vietnam’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) claim. This calls into serious question China’s commitment, including in the ASEAN-China Declaration…

The least known offshore oil and gas frontier in the East-Mediterranean, Lebanon is preparing itself for a possible entrance into the producer’s league. At the end of 2019, most probably November – December, offshore drilling is expected to start, targeting some prolific basins.

Nada Boustani, Lebanon’s Minister of Energy and Water, also reiterated that the country’s second licensing round is receiving…

In spite of impending American sanctions and widespread opposition including from within the European bloc, Nord Stream…

Coal usage continues to fall and the coal industry wants to do something about that. So does the Trump administration. Their proposed solution to the problem of waning coal usage is carbon capture and sequestration (CCS)—a technology that has been around for a long time. The basic idea behind CCS is to remove the carbon dioxide from the exhaust stream after burning the coal. Then the “captured” CO2 can be redirected. But in the US, the Southern Company and others attempted to develop an additional process. Their ultimate goal…

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures erased all of its early gains and are now in a position to finish the week lower amid an escalation of the trade war between the United States and China, and uncertainty over Federal Reserve policy. After trading sideways-to-higher most of the week, prices were flat early Friday as traders prepared for a keynote speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that could set the near-term tone of the market. Traders were expecting a quiet trade until 14:00 GMT when Powell is scheduled to deliver his…

Sometimes, trading demands putting your own views aside and going with the odds. For those whose experience is based on the Hollywood version of trading as epitomized in “The Big Short”, that may seem like a strange thing to say. Most movies based on trading are stories of a plucky individual, convinced that a big move is coming, defying the negativity of all around them who follow the conventional wisdom, and emerging victorious (and very rich) after getting to the brink of bankruptcy. What Hollywood doesn’t tell is the far more…

Until now, China has targeted LNG for tariffs, but never crude. The market will be looking for a signal as to what this means for the demand picture, but its verdict won’t just be about strict near-term…

A U.S. sanction waiver expiry later this year could see the number of drilling rigs in Venezuela’s Orinoco Belt slashed by half, putting additional pressure on Caracas by further reducing already low oil production rates. Bloomberg reports that the sanction waivers that Washington granted U.S. companies still operating in the sanction-hit country are due to expire in late October. These are extended waivers that originally expired earlier this year but the government decided to extend them for three more months. The companies involved, however,…
