THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2016:
With oil prices mostly steady over the last several weeks (with some recent volatility), the news has been mostly neutral from the oil and gas sector. There are still groups of people on both sides of the "oil with go up/oil will go down" argument - but I don't think that will ever change. A few thoughts from around the web on this topic:
- Five graphics in support of Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas
- Glut of gasoline undercutting oil prices
- Tortoise Invesment's assestment of the energy value chain
In some more specific news that I think points in the right direction, you have companies looking to make investments again.
In general industry news, the U.S. EPA recently released new emissions rules, some of which focus specifically on methane. The backlash from the oil and gas industry has been heavy, with a total of 14 states and the American Petroleum Institute all filing lawsuits against the ruling.Inside the U.S. it's all about politics right now. As we have said before, we are not going to take sides, but may link to articles that discuss a candidate's stance on oil and gas. Like this one, where Donald Trump says he believes towns and states should have the right to ban fracking.
Our last link this week is related to some potential new technology in enhanced oil recovery (EOR), which many believe is a growing market inside the oil and gas industry. The article profiles the new technology from SIGNa Chemistry. It will be interesting to see if it works at a commercial scale.
Tune in next week (same bat time, same bat channel) to see what else we have dug up from across the web.
