European benchmark Brent North Sea crude for April delivery won $1.22 to $60.76 a barrel in London midday deals. New York’s West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for April added 71 cents to $50.30 a barrel.

Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) is set to create a Petroleum Development Fund like Gas Development Fund (GDF) or Electricity Development and Maintenance Fund to save the state-owned Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC) from financial crunch. According to the BERC the fund would be raised by taking a portion from the profit that the BPC has earned from the sales of petroleum products in the domestic market. “The fund would be... »
If you have been following the price of oil over the last few months, the chances are you’re a little confused. On the one hand you have the likes of A. Gary Shilling who, in this Bloomberg article, loudly trumpets the prospect of oil at $10/Barrel, and on the other there is T. Boone Pickens, who, at the end of last year was predicting a return to $100 within 12-18... »
It may be difficult to look beyond the current pricing environment for oil, but the depletion of low-cost reserves and the increasing inability to find major new discoveries ensures a future of expensive oil. While analyzing the short-term trajectory of oil prices is certainly important, it obscures the fact that over the long-term, oil exploration companies may struggle to bring new sources of supply online.

NEW DELHI: State-run fuel retailers on Tuesday reduced petrol price by Rs 2.42 per litre and diesel by Rs 2.25, but the motor fuels still remain costlier than jet fuel — which costs Rs 46.51 per litre in Delhi — due to four consecutive hikes in excise duty. Petrol in the capital will cost Rs 56.49 from Wednesday, down from Rs 58.91, and diesel Rs 46.01, against the earlier rate... »
Oil companies have eyed the Arctic for years. With an estimated 90 billion barrels of oil lying north of the Arctic Circle, the circumpolar north is arguably the last corner of the globe that is still almost entirely unexplored. As drilling technology advances, conventional oil reserves become harder to find, and climate change contributes to melting sea ice, the Arctic has moved up on the list of priorities in oil... »
Crude oil will likely continue falling before posting only a mild recovery in the second half of this year, a Reuters survey of analysts showed on Friday, with prices set to average even less in 2015 than during the global financial crisis. The survey of 33 economists and analysts forecast North Sea Brent crude would average $58.30 a barrel in 2015, down $15.70 from last month’s poll, in the biggest... »
In last week’s article I posted a chart from the International Energy Agency’srecent Oil Market Report that shows global demand for refined products catching up to supply by the 3rd quarter of this year. My opinion is that all of the analysts who are now blaming the sharp drop in oil prices on a “glut” of supply could change their tune quickly as consumers adjust to lower fuel costs. Just... »

Interview With Arthur Berman

The Real Cause Of Low Oil Prices

With all the conspiracy theories surrounding OPEC’s November decision not cut production, is it really not just a case of simple economics? The U.S. shale boom has seen huge hype but the numbers speak for themselves and such overflowing optimism may have been unwarranted. When discussing harsh truths in energy, no sector is in greater need of a reality check than renewable energy. In a third exclusive interview with James... »
