Something to Say

grafffffff The late-2014, Saudi-initiated oil-price war may have taken the ‘boom’ out of the US shale industry as it seriously threatened OPEC market share, but Saudi victory has been elusive: US shale has proven amazingly resilient. The industry has adapted quickly to the new playing field, and the unsung hero of a new uptick in drilling and investment isn’t just true grit—it’s sand. The Saudi victory is equally dulled by the... »
oil price The U.S. electric power sector burned through a record amount of natural gas in recent weeks, a sign of the shifting power generation mix and also a signal that natural gas supplies could get tighter than many analysts had previously expected. The EIA reported a surprise drawdown in natural gas inventories for the week ending on August 3. The reduction of 6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) was the first summertime... »
Dinosaurs What killed the dinosaurs? It’s a question as old as – well the dinosaurs themselves, and one that everyone from school children to scientists have been asking for decades. Movies like Jurassic Park and the Land Before Time only heighten that sense of wonder and raise the stakes behind that question. Now according to a new scientific study, it seems that black gold may have been the source of the... »
BIFPCL- rampal Uninterrupted supply of power is considered to be precondition for development without which present world can’t move forward. Starting from agriculture to business, industrial production, office work, transportation, housing, human civilization, almost all the economic activities are now largely dependent on electricity.

nuclear Let’s for a second imagine a world without nuclear energy. That’s a tough one but let’s try. No nuclear bombs, of course, no Chernobyl and Fukushima, no worries about Iran and North Korea. A wonderful world, maybe? Probably not, because without nuclear energy we would have burned millions more tons of coal and billions more barrels of oil. This would have brought about climate change of such proportions that what... »
graf We are on the precipice of a food fight among 7 billion people, and potash will be right at the center of it. If you can add 200,000 people every day to the global population and account for a significant loss of farmland at the same time, you can begin to understand the dire food situation facing the planet. This is why potash is so important: It’s the fundamental element... »
uranium With prices set to double by 2018, we’ve seen the bottom of the uranium market, and the negative sentiment that has followed this resource around despite strong fundamentals, is starting to change. Billionaire investors sense it, and they’re always the first to anticipate change and take advantage of the rally before it becomes a reality. The turning point is where all the money is made, and there are plenty of... »
Fertilizer and gas Since Bangladesh’s fertiliser industry is intimately related with its natural gas production, how it has performed has been shaped greatly (but not exclusively) by (a) domestic gas demand-supply balances; and (b) global gas price levels. Natural gas contains nitrogen and phosphate. Since three-quarters of the atmosphere itself is nitrogen, which the soil cannot absorb in pure form, an ammonia or urea mixture becomes essential, depending on climatic factors. Our fertiliser... »
oil and gold The energy sector was certainly a bargain in January, but no one really knows where oil will be around Christmas. While we may have already seen the bottom, stock prices are not the bargain they were. There are other plays. Think electric vehicles and even driverless cars. Find what’s undervalued now and get in on some of the games that will dictate glorious future wealth. In an exclusive interview, Oilprice.com... »
Energy index ondicator Bangladesh The Cost of everything has declined except for due payments and operational expenditures. This is the current scenario of the country’s energy sector. Production of gas, its supply and sell along with monthly profit have raised.
