A Ring Around The Rulings

Given the influx of ruling-related rhetoric in the realm of Energyland™ this week, it seems useful to take a look at some of these announcements – which cover ground from fracs to specs, from UK shale to US LNG – to gain a better understanding. So without further fluff, let’s get our game faces on (= serious post, ahoy), and do a quick ring around the rulings.

Store Wars!

Ok, ok, I’ll put the Star Wars theme to bed. For today, my friends, we are going to look at some facts and figures about storage across a number of our dearly beloved commodities and a number of geographies – highlighting (for the most part) a theme of staunch stockpiles.  

To further provide some educational information, in addition to the focus on energy, there is also some trivia relating to the ultimate sultan of storage…the squirrel. So enjoy!

Burrito Bites

Good day, good day!  Crude has toppled below the monkey bar of $100 late on this week as – would you believe – Euro debt concerns arise once more. In addition, crude has been clobbered by a disheartening domestic demand situation.

The European debt crisis has been eased by France/Belgium guaranteeing the bad debt of Dexia, while the ECB has promised further bond purchases to calm default fears. A better-than-expected US employment report has been gladly accepted by markets (note: do not confuse ‘better-than-expected’ with  ‘strong’), while global economic worries continue to bubble away under the surface. Natural gas has spent the week plundering to new low after new low, as warmer outlooks look set to quell some heating demand, while strong supply is omnipresent. But enough from me, hark, bites to see: » read more
