A day after the American Petroleum Institute surprised market yet again with a crude oil inventory draw, pushing prices up, the Energy Information Administration also reported an inventory decline, at 2.1 million barrels for the week to May 29. At 532.3 million barrels, the authority said, crude oil inventories were 12 percent above the five-year average for this time of the year. Analysts had expected an inventory build of 3.3 million barrels, after last week the EIA reported a substantial inventory increase, at 7.9 million barrels, for the third… 06/03/2020 10:30
U.S. President Donald Trump believes OPEC+ and Saudi Arabia and Russia specifically will stick to their oil production cut agreement, a senior Washington official told Reuters, adding that a change of course would harm the global economy. “We trust that other major oil producers will not revert to policies that impede an orderly and swift recovery from these unprecedented global economic conditions,” the official said. Reuters recalls Trump’s conversations with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed, during which he effectively threatened… 06/03/2020 09:42
Brent Crude prices broke above $40 a barrel early on Wednesday, surpassing that threshold for the first time since Saudi Arabia and Russia broke up the previous OPEC+ pact on March 6 and started an oil price war for market share. Later on Wednesday, oil prices slipped following reports that non-compliant OPEC+ members in the new round of record production cuts could threaten the group’s meeting this month. OPEC+ was said to be considering holding an earlier-than-planned meeting on June 4, instead of on June 9 and 10. But a June 4 meeting… 06/02/2020 20:00
Shale drillers are bringing some shuttered oil production back online as the glut eases. The total amount of shut-in production in the Bakken stood at 475,000 bpd on May 28, a total that was 7 percent smaller than the week before, according to Bloomberg. A couple of high-profile shale companies voiced optimism at the start of June. EOG Resources said it plans to “accelerate” production in the second half of 2020, finding prevailing oil prices sufficient to step up drilling activity. The company also reduced its hedging exposure,… 06/02/2020 19:00
OPEC+ hopes to reduce global storage volumes with their production cuts, and hopes to extend them through at least, the summer. OPEC’s regular meeting in Vienna is coming up and of course the Russians will be invited as they hold the key to realizing the 9.7 mm BOPD cut now in effect through June. Their hope is to extend these cuts beyond the June-30th expiration through September, 1st. These cuts, as painful as they are to the economies of the OPEC member states, and that of Russia as well, are necessary in order for the cuts to deliver… 06/02/2020 18:00
Natural gas producers have had little to cheer about over the past few months after prices sunk to multi-year lows amid a huge oversupply and warm weather. The slowdown could not have come at a worse time for the burgeoning U.S. LNG industry, which has experienced explosive growth over the past decade that put the nation on the cusp of becoming the world's largest LNG exporter ahead of Qatar and Australia. But now, U.S. LNG producers can afford to smile after nabbing a key customer: Turkey. Turkey's LNG imports from the U.S. tripled during the… 06/02/2020 17:00
While everyone else was worrying about cheap oil and the future of electric cars, sodium batteries just got closer to becoming mainstream. This challenger to lithium ion technology has been around for a while but it has also been plagued by some inherent problems. Now, another one of these has been solved by researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Washington. The problem with sodium batteries are their limited capacity. Battery capacity is a top priority for any battery developer, especially in the EV space… 06/02/2020 16:53
The American Petroleum Institute (API) estimated on Tuesday a small crude oil inventory draw of 483,000 barrels for the week ending May 29. Analysts had predicted an inventory build of 3.038 million barrels. In the previous week, the API estimated a build in crude oil inventories of 8.731 million barrels. Meanwhile, the EIA’s estimates were for more muted, with the industry body reporting last week that the inventories had climbed by 7.9 million barrels. WTI was trading up on Tuesday afternoon prior to the API’s data release as OPEC… 06/02/2020 16:00
The coronavirus pandemic has dealt an immense blow to businesses and nations all around the planet, yet there is one specific sphere where it might actually deliver some positive outcomes – namely, ending long-standing and costly wars. The Yemeni civil war, one of the most sanguinary conflicts of the 21st century that has rekindled internecine distrust and elevated regional tensions to a new peak, might be the most realistic case in point as countries of the Gulf prepare for a virtual donors’ conference next week, organized for the… 06/02/2020 15:00
Oil prices climb ahead of highly-anticipated OPEC+ meeting. Chart of the Week- The U.S. only sold 729,000 vehicles in the month of April, the lowest since early 2010.- Car sales were down 59 percent year-on-year, while light truck sales were down 42 percent, a sign that consumers are making a slight shift to trucks and SUVs.- “The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) estimates of the sales-weighted average fuel economies of 33.9 miles per gallon (mpg) in March and 33.6… 06/02/2020 14:30
Oil and gas companies currently have assets for sale with recoverable reserves of more than 5 billion barrels of liquids and 7.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) of natural gas, Rystad Energy estimates. While some of these planned divestments were announced before the Covid-19-related oil price crash, more were added in reaction to the pandemic and its aftermath. Our estimates look at divestment opportunities that exclude unconventional and US onshore assets, announced since the fourth quarter of 2019. The majority of resources on… 06/02/2020 14:00
The Trump administration’s energy policy, as we consider the two candidates for our nation’s highest office, has been very clear. It rests on three conceptual pillars. Remove regulatory and governmental obstacles to the development of fossil fuels. Roll back environmental restrictions on emissions from both energy production and transportation. Reverse government policies to reduce consumption of fossil fuels. This is a policy of unfettered development significantly deemphasizing environmental concerns while encouraging increased fossil… 06/02/2020 13:00
Europe is so awash with natural gas amid weak demand and limited storage capacity that gas suppliers may have to cut flows to prevent natural gas prices from plunging further. Demand for natural gas is still very weak as major economies in Europe are emerging from lockdowns while gas in storage across the continent is at a record high for this time of the year. The natural gas glut has depressed the prices at key European hubs such as the Dutch TTF benchmark. Prices didn’t move much even after the biggest gas exporter to the continent,…
