U.S. will import 62% more crude by 2022 due to domestic production declines, says EIA

EIA expects that the United States will import more crude oil to fill the widening gap between refinery inputs of crude oil and domestic crude oil production in 2021 and 2022. U.S. crude oil production declined by an estimated 0.9 million bpd (8%) to 11.3 million bpd in 2020 because of well curtailment and a drop in drilling activity related to low crude oil prices.

Critical problem with Renewables: they are not at your beck and call!

People in Texas are suffering at present on an unprecedented scale and when the city mayor shot himself in the foot, while the response should have been a shot in the arm – not in vaccine sense – it hardly helps to boost the morale of ordinary people, let alone the vulnerable. Clearly, the demand of electricity has outweighed supply and the risks of wind power as a substitute are there for all to see. How many of us saw this coming – the frozen wind turbines? I certainly is not one of them.

Biden and his climate team disparage workers as part of their fossil fuel rhetoric

Vice President Kamala Harris drew derision on social media after she told a West Virginia television station that people could be put to work reclaiming abandoned “land mines.” A day earlier, climate envoy John Kerry said during a White House briefing that displaced laborers face “better choices” making solar panels and installing wind turbines.

Oil Price: what will happen when the planes are back in the skies?

Having risen steadily – and somewhat alarmingly – for more than a week, Brent crude price has slightly gone down for most of the day on Tuesday. Major oil producers in the OPEC, meanwhile, still think the price of the crude oil is in the right range as far as their economic issues are concerned, thanks to the output cut. The minnows in the organization, however, do not see it that way and reluctantly agree with cuts; they want to sell as much oil as possible and earn revenues as a matt

Crude oil price spike in the early morning in Asia; a drone was behind it!

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

Record cold brings a windfall for small U.S. natural gas producers

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. The freeze is giving a rare boost to a market that’s never recovered from a crash more than a decade ago, flooded by cheap supplies from shale fields. View the full article
