Oil and gas companies in Oman go green to protect environment

Muscat: Oil and gas companies in Oman are increasingly adding green practices into their operations, to help sustain the environments in which they operate over the long-term. While some choose to recycle the water brought up to the surface during oil extraction by building wetlands that help local species of animals and birds thrive while reducing desertification, others are setting up facilities that produce far fewer pollutants during the process of oil refining.

China's annual crude oil imports drop for first time in 20 years

SINGAPORE :China's annual crude oil imports slid 5.4per cent in 2021, dropping for the first time since 2001, as Beijing clamped down on the refining sector to curb excess domestic fuel production while refiners drew down massive inventories. China has been the global oil demand driver for the last decade, accounting for 44per cent of worldwide growth in oil imports since 2015, when Beijing started issuing import quotas to independent refiners. Benchmark Brent crude oil weakened slightly to $84.40 per barrel in the wake of the data release.

WTI crude oil resumes rally, targeting 83.8 next

WTI crude oil follows broad based risk-on sentiment and closed higher overnight. Rise from 62.90 resumed by breaking through 80.63 temporary top and hits as high as 81.79 so far. Current rally is expected to target 161.8% projection of 62.90 to 73.66 from 66.46 at 83.86, which is close to 85.92 high. Rise from 62.90 is seen as the second leg of the consolidation pattern from 85.92 only. Hence, we’re not expecting a firm break of 85.92 yet. Instead, another fall should be seen before the consolidation completes. Break of 77.97 support will indicate rejection by 85.92 and target 73.66 resistance turned support first.

Not surprisingly, many of the comments on the first day were aimed at the need for fossil fuels. The over-riding goal of many oil and gas companies, especially in the USA, is to keep the production of oil and gas going – and for a long time.

O&G upstream investment must rise to US$525b annually to ensure market balance — report

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 9): Oil and gas (O&G) upstream investment will need to increase and be sustained at near pre-Covid-19 levels of US$525 billion (about RM2.21 trillion) through 2030 to ensure market balance despite slowing demand growth. A recent report titled “Investment Crisis Threatens Energy Security” by the International Energy Forum and IHS Markit said upstream investment in the O&G sector in 2021 was depressed for a second consecutive year at US$341 billion — nearly 25% below 2019 levels. Meanwhile, O&G demand is now near pre-pandemic highs and will continue to rise for the next several years, particularly in developing countries.

Biden seeks cheaper oil: Opec and Russia have been put on the defensive after landmark challenge, says ALEX BRUMMER

Joint action by major economies is comparatively rare. So the decision of big oil consumers – the US, China, India, Japan, South Korea and Britain – to challenge OPEC and Russia is a signal moment. Past coordinated actions include the rebuilding of the global economy by the G20 after the financial crisis and emergency interest rate cuts by the US, Britain and the European Central Bank at the start of Covid-19.

The World Needs to Quit Oil and Gas. Africa Has an Idea: Rich Countries First.

LAGOS, Nigeria — The staff at Big Cabal, a media start-up, wanted to ditch its diesel generator, but needed something to keep the office air-conditioners running. The generator was noisy, expensive and, maybe worst of all, bad for the environment. Hoping for a greener solution to its problem, Big Cabal in 2019 bought solar panels for its two-story office building.

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.
