Wednesday, Oct 26:45 PMU.S. poised to pass Russia as world's top oil and gas producer
Wednesday, Oct 26:45 PM| 4 Comments
- The increase of U.S. energy output in recent years has been widely discussed, but a WSJ analysis of global data shows the U.S. is on track to pass Russia as the world's largest producer of oil and gas this year - if it hasn't already.
- The U.S. last year tapped more natural gas than Russia for the first time since 1982, and it's catching up in pumping crude; Russia produced an average 10.8M bbl/day in H1 2013, 900K/day more than the U.S. but down from a difference of 3M bbl/day a few years ago.
- The amount of crude from the Bakken oil field in North Dakota and the Eagle Ford shale in Texas continues to rise rapidly, while Russian output is expected to remain flat through 2016; that's a big problem for Russia, whose oil exports could fall 25%-30% after 2015, reducing GDP more than $100B.

Saturday, Sep 288:25 AMWood Mackenzie: North America energy independent by 2020
Saturday, Sep 288:25 AM| 38 Comments
- North America will become "energy independent" by 2020 on the strength of the shale revolution and then become a net energy exporter, consultant Wood Mackenzie says in a new report.
- North America’s energy independence will introduce a new dynamic to coal, oil and gas prices; coal and gas exports will establish a price cap on their respective markets during periods of high demand, and weak oil demand growth will see U.S. tight oil provide a price floor under crude markets.
- The report says energy independence does not imply a North America entirely detached from global markets; the region as a whole will be dependent on others to clear excess production, and the U.S. will need to import oil for the foreseeable future.

Monday, Sep 92:23 PMRefiners take it on the chin after several negative reports
Monday, Sep 92:23 PM| 1 Comment
- Refiners (PXE, RYE, IOIL) are broadly underperforming the rest of the energy sector today after a Simmons downgrade to Neutral from Overweight, expecting continuing challenges to EPS and refining margins in Q3 and into 2014 after a dismal Q2.
- Individual stocks lowered by the firm: Marathon Petroleum (MPC -1.5%), Tesoro (TSO -0.6%), Delek US (DK -1.3%), Alon USA (ALJ -0.5%), CVR Energy (CVI -1.8%), CVR Partners (CVRR -1.2%).
- HollyFrontier (HFC -1.8%) breaks down to fresh multi-week lows after a downgrade from Morgan Stanley.
- Also, Barclays says at its Energy-Power conference that it believes most refiners will miss current consensus expectations by a wide margin, with Valero (VLO +0.7%) the exception (Briefing.com).
Saturday, Jan 72012, 8:30 AMIf you still have a hunger for risk and it's aimed at energy, look beyond even cheap-looking Big Oil shares to smaller firms in oil shale (like SM, OAS and COG, or ETFs like PSCE or IOIL) - pricier, but maybe better positioned in newer technologies like horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, and which may be takeover targets for the big boys. |Saturday, Jan 72012, 8:30 AM| 7 Comments

Wednesday, Dec 142011, 5:22 AMOPEC members agree the group should set a production ceiling of 30M barrels/day, says an unnamed OPEC delegate, but may not allocate individual country quotas because of disagreement over how the oil output should be distributed. OPEC ministers, meeting now, will hold a press conference later this morning. Crude futures -0.44% to $99.70. |Wednesday, Dec 142011, 5:22 AM| Comment!
Wednesday, Dec 142011, 4:04 AMOPEC ministers meet today, and have been edging toward a decision to keep output broadly steady. Iran and Saudi Arabia, whose clash on output levels led to the collapse of the June meeting, both indicated they see demand for next year to be similar to this year's. Oil futures -0.2% to $99.93. |Wednesday, Dec 142011, 4:04 AM| Comment!
