About this blog

I started this blog to express what I sense about the highs and lows of the oil realm, while cautiously analysing historical data, taking into account the geo-political development at the time of recording them.

Shale’s fiscal discipline means missing out on rising oil prices

More focused than ever on keeping spending in check, shale operators haven’t been drilling new wells fast enough to keep up with output declines in older ones.
