Russian oil companies pumped 16 percent less oil last month than a year earlier, government data reported by Interfax showed. At 39.63 million tons, Russia’s average daily output for July was equal to 9.35 million bpd based on a conversion rate of 7.33 barrels per metric ton of oil. Reuters, however, cited Energy Ministry data that showed a daily average of 9.37 million barrels, which was slightly higher than the June average, which stood at 9.32 million bpd. The ministry commented that this rate of production was in line with Russia’s…

The world is hungry for resources to power the green transition. As we increasingly look to solar, wind, geothermal and move towards decarbonization, consumption of minerals such as cobalt, lithium and copper, which underpin them, is set to grow markedly. One study by the World Bank estimates that to meet this demand, cobalt production will need to grow by 450% from 2018 to 2050, in pursuit of keeping global average temperature rises below 2°C. The mining of any material can give rise to complex environmental and social impacts. Cobalt,…

All the way back in April (which may as well be years ago at the rate that the news cycle is moving these days) Oilprice reported that in the throes of the novel coronavirus pandemic, which had relatively recently washed over the United States, had caused the nation’s energy consumption to fall to a stunning 16-year low.

Last year, shale driller Apache Corp. (NYSE: APA) made waves after it sacked one of the most iconic CEOs in the shale patch, Steven Keenan. Keenan was reportedly shown the door after disappointing early results at Apache’s Suriname offshore field adjacent to Exxon Mobil Corp.’s (NYSE: XOM) historic discovery. Keenan is a shale expert who was handpicked by Apache’s management in 2014 to replicate his shale exploits at EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE: EOG) in the Eagle Ford. But maybe Apache acted in haste back then, and a mea culpa is…

Nowadays it is not very frequent that one would hear of a new nuclear project coming onstream in Europe. Perhaps unsurprisingly the Old Continent’s forthcoming nuclear launch takes place in its “last dictatorship” - after 9 years of construction and even more years spent in waiting, Belarus is expected to start up its first nuclear plant during the next couple of weeks – against a strung-up background of energy conflicts, elections-related ambiguity and personal suspicion. The Belorussian nuclear plant (abbreviated BelAES)…

Income-generating assets have had a challenging time since the Covid-19 pandemic began. Popular income vehicles like master limited partnerships (MLPs) have been especially hard-hit. The plunge in energy prices negatively impacted MLPs, because the majority of companies structured as MLPs transport and store oil and natural gas. A Brief History of MLPs The first master limited partnership (MLP) was formed by Apache Oil Company in 1981. In 1987 Congress legislated the rules for publicly traded partnerships in Internal Revenue Code Section 7704.…

Back in March of 2018, Axios reported on what they called the “oily path to tackling climate change.” For the article, reporter Amy Harder visited Petra Nova, a key carbon capture project on the outskirts of Houston where carbon was being captured and used to extract oil in a veritable ouroboros of a climate change solution. “Capturing carbon to extract oil seems counterintuitive to addressing climate change, but experts who have crunched the numbers say this technology is a necessary, if controversial, step that's helped…

Gold prices edged higher on Friday as the worsening covid-19 pandemic continues to stifle the global economy. Spot gold rose 11% for the month of July, heading for its biggest monthly gain in over eight years, driven by a declining US dollar and real yields. By 11:15 a.m. EDT, the spot price was up 1.0% to $1,974.40 per ounce, near an all-time high. Concerns have also been raised about the US dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency of choice as it gets closer to its biggest monthly drop in almost a decade. The…

It is a time for market shakeups. On Friday, tech giant Apple unseated oil giant Saudi Aramco as the world’s most valuable company. Earlier in the week, the market saw Reliance Industries unseat the world’s second-most valuable energy company, ExxonMobil. Reliance’s upward move can be attributed to Google’s investment in Reliance’s Jio Platforms—a digital services segment of Reliance. Tech is reveling in the coronavirus, smoothly transitioning workers to remote work and a magnet for those looking to sink money…

Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), the country’s biggest refiner and fuel retailer, doesn’t expect its capacity utilization to return to pre-pandemic levels in the near future, IOC’s chairman S.M. Vaidya told reporters on Friday. IOC had been gradually boosting its refinery capacity utilization since May, but utilization has been down in recent weeks as many states in India re-imposed localized lockdowns, after the nationwide lockdown in April-May, following a surge in COVID-19 cases. IOC’s capacity utilization has dropped…

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude oil is trading higher on Friday, but down for the week. Thursday’s steep drop also wiped out most of market’s monthly gain. Although the foundation is there for higher prices before the end of the year, the short-term outlook is a little bleak, suggesting we could be headed for weeks of sideways price action. After hitting a four-month high on July 21, the price action toward the end of this week clearly shows that investors are becoming more concerned about demand. One might suggest that prices would…

COVID Market Update Lackluster short-term oil demand is still holding oil benchmarks back and creating a mountain of headaches for oil companies that require higher prices to break even. Despite cheap crude that would otherwise be attractive to major importers, major flooding in China this week (in an industrial-heavy area no less) is threatening to sap demand from the world’s largest oil importer. The world’s third-largest oil importer, India, is also scaling back purchases of cheap crude, sinking to 10-year lows in June as its refineries…

A line-up of external actors is preparing to escalate the military conflict in Libya, but none of them want to. It’s about securing positions and hoping for a real cease-fire deal that would lead to an end to the conflict. Egypt is ready to deploy troops to Libya to fight in support of General Haftar against the Turkish-backed GNA. Russian mercenaries--Moscow’s proxy in this war--are securing oil facilities for Haftar, along with a mix of other militias, including Sudan’s blood-curdling Janjaweed, who are always for hire. The…
