By all accounts, major general Qasem Soleimani – commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) crack ‘Quds’ force that is responsible for foreign military and clandestine operations – is a man of the highest intellect. Instrumental in numerous effective campaigns against Iraq, the Islamic State and in Syria, to name but a few, he has also played a key role in advancing Iran’s political power across the Shia crescent of influence stretching from Syria through Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Iran itself,… 10/14/2019 17:00
Saudi Arabia will restore its oil production to levels slightly above the output just before the attacks on its oil facilities in mid-September, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said on Monday. Last month, Saudi Arabia sustained an unprecedented attack on its oil infrastructure, which knocked 5.7 million bpd—or 5 percent of global oil supply—offline. The Saudis were quick to assure the market that production would quickly return online, and that not a single oil shipment to customers would be skipped. Last week, Saudi… 10/14/2019 17:00
Oil prices rose on Friday after the U.S. and China seemed to hammer out a trade deal that postponed tariffs. But after studying the details – or lack thereof – investors lost much of their enthusiasm. Crude prices were down at the start of trading on Monday, a reflection of disappointment following last week’s trade announcement. President Trump did his best to sell the deal, arguing that it was the first of a phased approach that would eventually amount to a broad and comprehensive trade agreement. He also encouraged American… 10/14/2019 15:00
Natural gas production in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays is growing at a slower pace than before as low prices persist, but demand has yet to catch up to supply. S&P Global Platts reports that energy companies in the Appalachian Basin have started cutting back their new drilling, pressured by low gas prices on the one hand, and shareholder pressure for greater returns on the other. At the moment, spot prices at two gas hubs in the region—Columbia Gas Appalachia and Dominion South—are about $1 per mmBtu. That’s down from… 10/14/2019 14:30
Saudi oil giant Aramco could invest in liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in Russia in the future, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said at a Saudi-Russian investment forum in Riyadh on Monday. “Now we have invited our Saudi colleagues to develop our projects for the production of liquefied natural gas in the north of Russia, we have a successful Yamal LNG project. We believe that Saudi Aramco will be one of the investors in future projects,” Novak said, as carried by Russia’s news agency TASS. The Russian energy minister… 10/14/2019 14:00
Russia's de-dollarization efforts continue, in line with Putin's promise to lower the country's vulnerability to the ongoing threat of US sanctions, with officials eyeing energy exports next. “We have a very good currency, it’s stable. Why not use it for global transactions?” Russian Economy Minister Maxim Oreshkin said in an interview with the Financial Times on Sunday. “We want (oil and gas sales) in rubles at some point,” he said. “The question here is not to… 10/14/2019 13:00
The Houthi rebel group in Yemen was the first to claim responsibility for what they described as a drone attack on Khurais and Abqaiq in eastern Saudi Arabia. However, fingers were quick to point to Iran’s missile capabilities. Substantial evidence has yet to emerge, and speculations are rampant. One thing for certain is that KSA was struck at its most valuable asset. The attack damaged processing trains and storage tanks at the Abqaiq stabilisation plant, the world’s largest of its sort. It also disrupted Saudi production… 10/14/2019 13:00
China imported 10.08 million bpd of crude oil last month, up 11 percent on the year, customs data showed as cited by S&P Global Platts. This was the first time since April that imports topped 10 million barrels. On a monthly basis, however, the September imports were up by a modest 1 percent. Over the first nine months of the year, China’s average daily oil imports stood at 9.91 million barrels, S&P Global Platts also reported, up by a solid 9.7 percent from a year earlier. Exports, for their part, surged, but only in the oil product… 10/14/2019 11:30
India is planning to invest $60 billion in developing a national natural gas grid and building a number of import terminals, Reuters reports, adding that the plan is part of efforts to reduce emissions. Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the grid should be completed by 2024. “I am not talking about potential investment. This number relates to the projects that are under execution,” Pradhan said at the India Energy Forum. Reuters recalls that India’s gas demand was growing at a strong pace about 10 years ago, with the 2010… 10/14/2019 10:00
“We did not engage in such behaviour at all. This is not how we operate and that’s not how we did (it) in the past,” Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, told media in response to questions about the Iranian tanker Sabiti. According to Iranian media reports, the Sabiti was hit by missiles off the Saudi Arabian coast on Friday. The National Iranian Tanker Company confirmed these reports but denied those of them that said the attacks had originated in Saudi Arabia, Al Jazeera reported. In fact, Bloomberg reported,… 10/13/2019 19:00
Hedge funds aren’t exactly batting 1,000 these days. And when it comes to their energy bets, it’s largely been a crash-and-burn story. This year is threatening to deliver more of the same. Despite recovering investor risk sentiment, hedge fund managers were in the red for the second consecutive month in September, dragging down their year-to-date return to 5.81 percent and underperforming the global equities market, which gained 2.04 percent over the month. Since 2016, energy-exposed funds have gotten hammered by wrong-way bets… 10/13/2019 13:00
Last Friday, the news out of the White House was that Trump administration was about to announce a major biofuel boost to support United States farmers. The move was to be a key development after weeks of intense debate over how to respond to harsh criticism coming from biofuels’ backers and months of bureaucratic back and forth about highly contentious and allegedly corrupt biofuel waiver trading. The outrage expressed by the powerful corn lobby over the last few weeks was brought on when Trump abruptly the months-long review of the… 10/13/2019 11:00
Oil and gas companies have discovered 7.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) year-to-date, according to Rystad Energy’s latest global discoveries report. “The industry is well on track to repeat the feat achieved in 2018 when around 10 billion boe of recoverable resources were discovered,” says Palzor Shenga, senior analyst on Rystad Energy’s upstream team. (Click to enlarge) Russia has seen the most discovered resources thus far in 2019, with the Dinkov and Nyarmeyskoye discovery announced earlier this year holding… 10/12/2019 19:00
Climate has inarguably become a hot topic of discussion in developed economies over the last decade, and it is getting hotter by the day as study after study warn we are close to doomed if we don’t change our ways urgently. Yet climate on Earth is not the only problem that humankind faces. There is another climate we need to pay attention to, and there is nothing we can do to change that. Solar storms, whose more scientific name is coronal mass ejections, were until recently believed to be a rare occurrence—only happening once every… 10/12/2019 17:00
If Great Britain keeps its commitment to switch over its vehicles to electric by 2050, the government will see a whopping loss of 28 billion pounds ($35 billion) paid by motorists driving traditional gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles. That comes from a study released Friday by London-based Institute for Fiscal Studies examining the impact of the UK’s net-zero greenhouse gas emissions law adopted in June and signed by previous Prime Minister Theresa May. England became the first G7 country to set the goal of reaching zero net… 10/12/2019 13:00
The September 14 attack in eastern Saudi Arabia is unprecedented. A drone and missile strike claimed by Houthi rebels of Yemen damaged Saudi Arabia’s processing facility and oil field in Abqaiq and Khurais. The U.S. and Saudi officials claimed the incursion originated outside of Yemen implicating Iran as the main culprit which facilitated the drone offensive. U.S. officials believe the launched attacks came from southwest Iran. Tehran and the Houthis deny that allegation. The Connection: Houthis of Yemen and Iran The Houthis, who belong to…
