EU climate boss sees a role for natural gas in the green energy transition

European Union climate chief Frans Timmermans gave the clearest signal yet that the bloc is considering a role for natural gas under its green rulebook for investments, setting up a clash with some national governments. Timmermans said that an exit from coal for some member states, like Poland, would require an “intermediary stage” using natural gas. It would be subject to strict conditions, including pre-fitting pipelines so that they can carry hydrogen and de-carbonized gases after the transition from natural gas ends.

Why Lesser-Known Oil and Gas Stocks Soared Today

Fears of a shortfall in oil and gas production -- even as demand continues to rise -- were looming large since Hurricane Ida slammed the Gulf of Mexico a couple of weeks ago. The American Petroleum Institute (API) confirmed those fears with its weekly inventory report released on Sept. 14: Crude oil stocks declined by 5.4 million barrels in the week ended Sept. 10 compared with a forecast drop of 3.9 million barrels. API reported a drop of roughly 2.9 million barrels in the previous week. Just the other day, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) projected demand for oil to cross pre-pandemic levels in 2022. Fear has gripped the natural gas market even harder given supply disruptions during the peak inventory buildup season ahead of the winter months. Natural gas inventories in the U.S. came in 16.8% lower year over year in the week ended Sept. 9, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

Why Oil and Gas Stocks Sizzled Today

OPEC's strong demand forecast comes amid tight oil supply as a significant portion of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico remains offline nearly two weeks after Hurricane Ida. With Tropical Storm Nicholas now heading toward the Texas oil hub, fears of further disruption in oil supply loom large. Given the backdrop, investors in upstream oil stocks such as Vermilion Energy and Centennial Resource Development are unsurprisingly excited. Higher oil prices mean more money for these oil producers, which they can then use to produce more oil to meet higher demand. That also means better prospects for oil-field service companies such as Helix Energy. Last quarter, Helix Energy downgraded its 2021 revenue outlook to $635 million at the midpoint from previous midpoint guidance of $662.5 million, representing roughly 13.5% drop over 2020 revenue.

Qatar faces tough choices as coronavirus guts natural gas demand

Struck by weak demand and depleting storage facilities, the world’s biggest exporter of LNG may soon have to: curb output or ignite a battle for market share that has the potential. Qatar began redirecting LNG cargoes away from Asia in February, where the coronavirus was shattering sales, and sending them to Europe. That quick fix didn’t last, as the pandemic left Qatar struggling for places to park unsold cargoes.
