OEF Rapid Review Articles

Very informative charts help illustrate the extent to which the Permian basin is outstripping its rivals in terms of investor interest and deal flow. Confidence is not only illustrated in merger and acquisitions activity but also in how much companies are currently willing to invest in their own future. Capital expenditure plans are lower and less bullish than a year before, but operators are still displaying a greater level of confidence in being able to fund robust capex spends.

U.S Oil Exports Surge And Complicate Market Rebalancing 06/18/17 •lweb.es/f2869 •bit.ly/2ueR2Gg US crude exports averaged more than 1 million barrels a day in April, driven by the significant discount of US crude prices relative to global benchmarks. New infrastructure, like the 520,000 barrels a day Dakota Access Pipeline, has reduced costs to move crude to the Gulf Coast, while major projects are underway at US Gulf Coast ports that will increase the region's export capacity. These outward flows have served as an outlet for rising US crude production and have displaced other barrels that have struggled to then find a home.
Trump’s “Energy Independence” Order: Both Uncertainty And Opportunity 03/28/17 •lweb.es/f2693 •bit.ly/2ocvx54 President Trump has issued an executive order to dismantle the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan.

From a climate action perspective, there is widespread agreement that the order is bad news for U.S. emissions. Interestingly, 62 percent of Trump voters support taxing and/or regulating pollution causing global warming, and nearly three-quarters thin...
