At 04:27 GMT on Monday, Brent crude price went up by $1.09, a rise in 1.8%. WTI crude, meanwhile, gained $1.28. Analysts may think the stimulus package announced by the Biden administration and the hopes of success of the vaccination programmes across the world are behind the spike in crude price in the morning hours in Asia.
It, however, was triggered off by a drone operation aimed at Saudi Arabia by Houthi rebels. According to Saudis, a drone, laden with explosives, was detected by the Sa
The Arctic blast gripping the central U.S. may threaten crude exports from one of the world’s top producers, amid rapidly-normalizing global stockpiles that point to the success OPEC has had in draining a surplus left in the wake of the pandemic. View the full article
American refiners are processing the most crude since the economy ground to a halt in March in anticipation of a vaccine-driven boost in gasoline demand this summer.

After years of depressed prices and weak margins, U.S. natural gas producers -- at least those with wells and equipment that aren’t frozen -- are cashing in on an unusually extreme blast of cold.

On Boxing Day in 2020, we were mostly indoors due to the lockdown over the Christmas period in the United Kingdom; nature hardly helped alleviate the gloom during the difficult time either in the hour of national need; on the contrary, its fury developed into a monstrous storm, knows as Storm Bella, which relentlessly battered the British Isles.
Being true to the cliché, the dark clouds did have a silver lining as far as the camp of renewables was concerned; the winds of Storm Bella, with g

The next monthly meeting of the OPEC+ on March 4, is going to be crucial for the oil price in particular and the economies of the world regardless of their strength in general.
At present, the factors which are always in favour of steady oil price are active and in full swing: the inventory draws are significant; China has been importing crude oil at an increased pace and so has India; Covid-19 vaccines bring in new hope for controlling the pandemic.
In this context, OPEC+ can play the

OPEC meets on March 4 and members will probably agree to keep output steady in April, Iraq’s Oil Minister Ihsan Abdul Jabbar said. The biggest change will come from Saudi Arabia, which will likely end unilateral daily cuts of 1 million barrels after March, he said. View the full article
The IEA cut forecasts for world oil consumption in 2021 by 200,000 barrels a day as the pandemic continues to limit travel and economic activity. It boosted projections for supplies outside the OPEC cartel by 400,000 barrels a day as a price recovery spurs investment. View the full article
Oil prices in New York slid 0.8% on Thursday, the biggest decline in two weeks, after rising for eight straight sessions.

Shell is starting one of the biggest reorganizations in its history as it pivots from a century-long structure that prioritized oil and gas production. There will be as many as 9,000 job losses over the next two years, with cuts already announced in The Netherlands, the UK and Malaysia. A second round of voluntary redundancies is also underway, Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden said last week. View the full article

Oil surge continues as investors feel that the demand is back on track and it’s finally irreversible regardless of the bad news on the Coronavirus front with the discovery of new variants.
Investors seem to be particularly buoyed by the projected increase in demand by two leading developing countries in Asia, India and China, as the respective economies show healthy signs of recovery.

I am sure this must be the nightmare of every chartist who lurches on the uncertainty of cru

Airlines, one of the hardest hit sectors by the pandemic, anticipate man-conceived headwinds when they finally get back to normal business in the post-pandemic world.
The airline sector feels that they will have to come up with long-term strategies to reduce greenhouse gases at their sources – the engines that spew thousands of tons of carbon dioxide, in this case.
This is a sector that lost almost 75% of its passenger numbers due to the pandemic and on a soul searching mission to get
