Oil Rebalancing: Delayed Rather than Derailed?

Oil market rebalancing has been pushed back by a few months rather than pushed off course, if recent movements in crude futures prices are to be believed.   Brent futures prices for June delivery have risen in 10 of the last 11 trading sessions by a total of more than $5 per barrel.

OPEC's War On Oil Overhang Starts to Bear Fruit

OPEC appears to be slowly winning the battle against a global overhang of crude and oil products as inventories in onshore and floating storage decline. The price of oil may not reflect this just yet, as Brent crude futures are struggling to recover its losses for the year to date and break above $55 a barrel.

Oil majors and trading houses are set to ship an unprecedented volume of U.S. crude oil to Asia in coming weeks, boosting already high flows to the region due to higher prices from OPEC production cuts.   Traders have estimated that some 700,000 to 900,000 barrels per day is set to leave the United States in February, with the majority of the cargoes headed to Asia.

LNG Floating Storage: A Passing Trend?

LNG Floating Storage: A Passing Trend?

At the end of 2015, global LNG production was approximately 35 bcf/d. By 2019, global supply is set to increase by 40 percent with the U.S. and Australia planning to bring another 15 bcf/d online. However, traditional markets like Europe and Northern Asia are experiencing no demand growth due to several factors, including price controls, competition from other fuels, and regulations.

Aframax Rates in Mediterranean Jump on Shortage of Ships

Freight rates for Aframax tankers on Black Sea-Mediterranean and cross Mediterranean routes almost doubled on Friday to their highest since July, driven by demand for loadings at the end of November at a time when many Aframaxes are storing oil at sea.   Rates for these routes jumped to 120-140 Worldscale points (WS) from WS70-80 on Thursday, shipping reports showed.

US Boatbuilding: Exports Buoy Bottom Lines

Market conditions dampen some future prospects, but domestic yards have proven that they can compete overseas, and will do so again when the time is right.    These are ‘interesting’ times for U.S. shipbuilders. The tail end of one of the biggest boom cycles seen in the last 50 years also finds some builders at the pointy end of once-fat backorder books and searching for new sources of business.

Private partnerships, executed perfectly – that’s West Coast boatbuilding in today’s challenging business climates.      P3 Partnerships: no, we’re not talking about infrastructure funding. But, in our P3 version, boatbuilding in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska is alive and well, because of it. Long-standing enterprises and relative newcomers are all experiencing an uptick in projects.

Dismay in Oil Twitterverse upon U.S. Trader's Exit

Oil traders keep a low profile. So when one of the most widely followed oil traders on Twitter abruptly closed his account last week, the outpouring of dismay among his thousands of followers was rare for the secretive multi-trillion dollar industry.
