Sunday, Dec 85:29 AMMexico unveils radical bill to open up energy market
Sunday, Dec 85:29 AM| 8 Comments
- Legislators in Mexico are today due to start debating a draft bill to open up the country's energy industry and end the decades-long monopoly of state-run Pemex, which suffers from inefficiency, falling output and chronic under-investment.
- The measures would allow private oil companies to explore for, produce, and refine oil and gas, as well as share and market the resources they extract. Firms would also be able to include the projected income of long-term contracts on their balance sheets, something that is crucial for obtaining funds. However, the proposals stop short of offering firms full-blow concessions - a loaded term in Mexico.
- If the bill becomes law, it could add 50-100 bps to Mexico's GDP and prompt rating agencies to give the country's debt a positive outlook, says economist Pedro Tuesta.
- Congress is expected to pass the legislation this week, as it's supported by the main opposition party as well as by the government, although it faces significant public hostility.

Saturday, Nov 99:11 AMCheap natural gas hits NYC in "game changer" for the region
Saturday, Nov 99:11 AM| 8 Comments
- Natural gas prices in Manhattan are cheaper than in Louisiana these days, thanks to a pipeline that opened Nov. 1 which has effectively doubled the amount of natural gas flowing into Manhattan and steadily pulled down the island’s delivery price.
- Spectra Energy’s (SE) new pipeline, the first to be built to New York in 40 years, gathers gas from various sources including Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale.
- SE says lower natural gas prices will reduce energy costs businesses and residents pay by $350M/year in New York and by the same in New Jersey, and analysts say the claims are legit; it will help clean up the air too.
- The pipeline met opposition from groups arguing that it encourages fracking, but New Yorkers already consumed fracked natural gas - now they’ll at least stop overpaying for it.

Monday, Oct 1410:50 AM| 1 Comment
- U.S. natural gas may not end up being as cheap as expected in the long term, as higher production costs and stronger demand make exports less competitive on the global marketplace, energy company executives say.
- Henry Hub prices are in one of the low price cycles and below replacement costs, which can't be sustained if history is a guide, says Exxon (XOM) global LNG V.P. Richard Guerrant.
- Looking forward to 2020-25, producing only the dry shale gas without the associated oil won't be profitable at $4 or $5/M BTU, says ConocoPhillips' (COP) V.P. of Commercial, Business Development and Corporate Planning Don Wallette.

Wednesday, Jul 319:58 AMCentrica-Hess deal implies bearish view of natural gas prices
Wednesday, Jul 319:58 AM| Comment!
- Centrica's (CPYYF.PK) $1B deal for Hess' (HES) energy marketing operations, which supplies businesses on the U.S. east coast, is a signal the U.K. utility - which was on the margins of the sector but now becomes one if its biggest players - is bearish on natural gas prices and has implicitly taken a $1B short position, WSJ's Liam Denning writes.
- The acquired business sells gas but doesn’t produce any, so it performs best when prices are reasonably low and stable.
- Centrica suggests more U.S. acquisitions may be ahead, since lower North American gas prices make it attractive vs. the U.K., where costs are rising.
