  • Leaner ConocoPhillips Poised To Capture Oil Recovery And Is Trading At 38% Discount [View article]
    Jerry - WTI is a higher grade oil than Brent, but Brent sells at a $6 premium worldwide to WTI. Why? Because there is too much WTI concentrated in the US. If we were allowed to move WTI out of the US the Brent/WTI spread would go to zero. The result would be US producers would get a higher price, helping them to stay in business, and US gasoline prices would drop, since gas prices are tied to world Brent price. Win, win for US operators and consumers, not so good for the North Sea operators.

  • Canada sets carbon emissions reduction target of 30% by 2030 [View news story]
    No problem. Export that oil sand production, it becomes somebody else's problem.

    The root problem with capitalism is that all the smart people are in business and all of the dumbasses are in government.

    Heaven help us.

  • The 'War On Cash' Migrates To Switzerland [View article]
    We have the same trouble here in the U.S. The govt figures that anyone that wants more than $10,000 in cash is a criminal of some sort, drug dealer or some such.

    The problem is that the govt keeps inflating the dollar so that before long $10,000 won't buy a loaf of bread.

    Then what?

  • A Further Rise In Crude Oil Prices Facing Headwinds Near Term [View article]
    So, after the Saudis crashed world oil price and put a hit on the service companies they found that they could get 150 rigs drilling for the same total daily drilling cost as 100 rigs last year. These guys are pretty smart. I'll bet their drilling budget hasn't changed much.

  • Despite Low Oil Prices, Schlumberger Stock Is A Great Investment [View article]
    SLB screwed their employees again. It wasn't the first time. I will not invest in a company that ALWAYS pays management first.

    They are scum sucking DOGS.

    Sometimes I forget that this is a stock website, and that in the big picture with most oil companies, long term, dedicated employees don't really matter, only the stock price matters.

  • Cadillac And Audi Launch All-New Plug-In Hybrid Sedans In China: How Will This Impact Tesla? [View article]
    Elon Musk, warts and all, has built a company that has astounded everyone with it's products.

    The stock trades independent of what Elon can control, or of what you can do with your foolish rant.

    If you don't like the FED driven inflation of stock values, don't buy stock.

    Why don't you lay off of a true innovator? There aren't that many around these days.

  • Are Falling Oil Prices Beginning To Hurt Tesla And/Or EV Sales In General? [View article]
    I don't think you are right about this.

    I just ran 158.8 mph in my Mustang. Trapped at 6500 rpm which charts at about 385 hp. 110 hp won't cut it.

  • Don't Worry About $55 WTI, EOG Has Leonard [View article]
    EOG has the best technical people of any of the shale players. The were early entrants to the best plays, bought the best acreage, and then continually improved their technology to increase their ROI even while prices were collapsing.

    The problem is that they spend every dime they make drilling more wells and they don't return anything, really, to shareholders. They claim high ROR, like 35%, but it never filters down to the shareholders. Management runs the company for themselves. It's a great deal for them. We call them the EGO company.

  • ConocoPhillips Targets Positive Cash Flows By 2017 - Is This Reason Enough To Go Long? [View article]
    Any real oilman that has been around knows that the price of oil is never correct.

    It is either too high, or too low. It doesn't spend much time in the middle.

    COP management is very smart. They know that today oil price is too low. But they are prepared for this. I mean give me a break, 35% CAPEX cut with 2-3% production increase. How can you you want more???

    But when oil price recovers, which it will, they will be off to the races with their excellent land position and technological advantage.

  • U.S. Oil Export Ban: Are There Reasons Not To Repeal? [View article]
    The crude oil export ban was originally passed when the US had almost no ability to export crude. Was this the right thing to do then? No. Why bother?

    Now, 40 years later, when everything has changed, do you expect the geniuses in Congress to do the right thing now by correcting their mistake of 40 years ago?

    Not a chance.

  • North Atlantic Drilling: West Navigator Contract Termination Points To Possible End Of Rosneft Accord [View article]
    Because I don't think it will rain this summer. But it probably will rain next winter. The grass will grow again in the spring and the ranch will be saved.
