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.

I got into this field, having been a passive observer of fluctuations of crude oil prices and their global consequences for years.

Then, when on the day of Great Oil Crash in April, 2020, I made a decision to make my own blog, with the motto, ‘analysing data that really matters’.

Having come from an academic background in mathematics and physics, I analyse data using my own tools, created with JavaScript and Python, taking my decision on board while making decisions.

Crude Oil Makets: bull runs riot before a caged bear

I have been looking at many charts that depict the current oil prices and even created one for my own website/blog using the weekly oil price data since 1987, from the EIA, the US Energy Information Administration. Despite all that, sensing the trend, upward or downward, on weekly basis is as ridiculous as betting on the foot that a centipede will put ward in order to shorten its crooked path. I am sure this must be the nightmare of every chartist who lurches on the uncertainty of cru

Decarbonizing the smoke trail: new mission of the United Airlines

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

Shell lost its case in The Hague; but, Nigeria has even a bigger shell to crack to shore up its economy

A Dutch court ordered a Nigerian subsidiary of the oil giant, Shell, last week to compensate for the damage caused by oil spills to local farmers on its watch in the oil-rich Niger Delta region, in 2013. The unprecedented ruling will have server repercussion for the international oil companies, which work in Nigeria – and beyond its borders. Shell had been denying the allegation that it was responsible for the oil spills that ruined the livelihood of farmers living in the region; inste

Why the drop of crude oil inventories did not excite markets?

The substantial fall of US crude oil stockpiles has not excited the oil price yet, buckling the familiar trend. The positive news has been overshadowed by a myriad of factors, according to seasoned market watchers. Some of the key reasons are as follows: ·       The Federal Reserve makes it known the inevitability of its continuing support to revive the battered economy ·       The outbreak of Covid-19 clusters again in China in the middle of winter ·       The rel

Recovery of Jet Fuel Demand: Skies above Heathrow does not look good at present

This is the sky above the Heathrow airport in London, United Kingdom at 12.50 pm on Tuesday.  Heathrow used to be world's busiest airport, a few years ago. Even at this time last year, you could see a plane, at every two-minute interval, in the skies above Heathrow. It's really sad to see just three planes at the same location; perhaps, they may be just cargo planes. Let's think about the haemorrhage of income for those who rely on a functionning airport: Airport staf

Oil Price Stabilized: Iraq and Libya join in production cuts

The unity of Arab nations with Saudi Arabia at its nucleus appears to be helping the latter in its determination to cut the crude oil output to compensate for the loss of revenues during the past few months. Both Iraq and Libya confirmed that they will cut down the output for January and February, mimicking what Saudis did: not only did Saudi Arabia cut the oil output by 1 million barrels per day, but also raised the crude oil price for Asia, something that didn’t go down very well with the
