As the coronavirus continues to take a toll on oil markets, competition is heating up for crude oil suppliers—all of which are vying for a piece of the dwindling oil demand in China and Japan as refineries there cut their run rates. Crude oil suppliers are now slashing prices for certain grades of crude oil, according to refinery officials and trading managers who spoke to S&P Global Platts. The difference in some cases are multiple dollars per barrel for April loadings compared to March loadings. China’s Mega Refiners Make Drastic…

Back in 2014, the Ford Motor Company mesmerized the world when it revealed it had 3D printed the engine cover for the all-new Ford Mustang, marking the earliest instances of practical industrial use of the esoteric printing technology. The giant auto manufacturer took this a step further when it started using 3D printing to quickly produce prototypes for different parts such as cylinder heads, intake manifolds and air vents thus shaving months off the development time for individual components. And now, 3D printing is doing its magic in the…

Last month was the hottest January in all recorded history. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), land and ocean temperatures across the globe were higher last month than in any of the past 141 years, exceeding the 20th century average by a whopping 2.05 degrees Fahrenheit, (1.13 degrees Celsius) as record-breaking high temperatures were recorded in locations as far-flung as “Central and South America, Asia, Scandinavia, the Indian and Atlantic Oceans and the central and western Pacific Ocean.” As…

The quest for the next source of renewable energy is well under way, with no natural phenomenon overlooked. We have already harnessed the power of flowing water, wind, and sunlight, and the search for the next clean source of energy is far from over. The latest potential breakthrough in renewable energy comes in the form of rain. Rain has not been getting a lot of attention in renewable energy circles perhaps because it would be challenging to harness its electricity-producing potential. Yet attempts are being made, and in the latest breakthrough,…

The IEA slashed its demand forecast for the first quarter of 2020, predicting that global oil consumption will contract for the first time in over a decade. In its first publication on the oil market since the outbreak began, the International Energy Agency (IEA) dramatically revised its oil demand forecast, predicting consumption will actually contract by 435,000 bpd, the first outright decline year-on-year since the global financial crisis more than a decade ago. Previously, the agency expected consumption to increase by 800,000 bpd from a year…

Ultimately, energy independence is an illusion in the era of globalization because the hyper connectedness of the market makes it impossible. Still, it’s a never-ending battle cry that ends up being an argument of semantics, the outcome of which depends on how you define “independence”. America's ongoing oil and shale boom has reignited the debate about something that the nation had long come to consider a far-off dream: energy independence. The notion that the country could become self-sufficient by producing…

After a Jekyll and Hyde year in 2019, and a decade characterised by China’s disruption of the met coal trade, participants can be forgiven for being sick of change. But research firm Wood Mackenzie believes a shift toward consistency and stability is probably too much to ask for in 2020 as China continues to play powerbroker over the seaborne market and spot pricing. Woodmac says 2020 is likely to be a pivotal year for those miners who struggled through the second half of 2019. Under the global microscope, coal suppliers looking…

Just days after OPEC slashed its oil demand forecast as a result of the slowdown in China's economy due to the Covid-19, moments ago Goldman has doubled down on its bearish oil take and has cut its oil price target by $10 to $53 in Q1 through the end of the year, as a result of what it now estimates is a loss of as much as 4 million barrels per day out of China.

1. Is the Permian getting gassier?- “We expect Permian gross gas production to increase by more than 4.5 billion cubic feet per day between the fourth quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2021,” Rystad Energy said in a report. - One of the main concerns about the Permian is that production is increasingly becoming gassier, that is, the gas-to-oil ratio of the hydrocarbons is leaning in a natural gas direction. While that is certainly true for wells as they age, Rystad said there is less of a concern with new wells. - “We…

It may sound crazy to say this given where oil futures are trading, but in some ways, this has been the most positive week or so for crude for some time. The chart indicates that there is a good chance that the big move down is over, the slight bounce suggests that the next move will be a retracement, and when looked at in context, oil is actually performing well. The chart above is for the main WTI futures contract, CL. As you can see, the big drop took the form of a pretty classic Elliott Wave pattern, marked in blue (Okay, Elliott purists, I…

Turkey: The Spoiler Nation Turkey’s regional scheming and meddling everywhere from Cyprus and Syria to Libya is about one overriding thing: Israeli gas. If Israel, Greece and Cyprus make good on plans to build an underwater pipeline to carry Israel’s massive Levant Basin gas finds to Europe, then Turkey will lose any chance to make good on Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman dreams of regional power. That is why Turkey is meddling in Syria (which also has a chunk of the Levant Basin to explore), and why it’s stepped into the…
