What America Does Not Understand About Russia & Oil | Zero Hedge

What America Does Not Understand About Russia & Oil | Zero Hedge | Space versus Oil | Scoop.it
As hard as it is to believe - given the strength of the "Russia-is-doomed" meme - Crude oil prices for Russia (in Rubles) are unchanged since February... This is important as all costs are Ruble denominated while revenues are USD denominated, leaving Russian oil companies’ margins insulated despite the dollar decline in price. In addition, the Russian government is easing the export taxes which further improve the profitability of Russian oil. So as US Shale Oil sector is destroyed by its USD costs, it appears Putin's core energy industry is somewhat insulated... and America's late-80s "defeat The Soviet Union" playbook is failing.

The Shale Bust Arrives: November Permits For New Shale Wells Tumble 15% | Zero Hedge

The Shale Bust Arrives: November Permits For New Shale Wells Tumble 15% | Zero Hedge | Space versus Oil | Scoop.it
With a third of S&P 500 capital expenditure due from the imploding energy sector (and with over 20% of the high-yield market dominated by these names), paying attention to any inflection point in the US oil-producers is critical as they have been gung-ho "unequivocally good" expanders even as oil prices fell. However, as Reuters reports, new data suggests that the much-anticipated slowdown in shale country may have finally arrived - permits for new wells dropped 15% across 12 major shale formations last month, as one analysts warns, "the first domino is the price, which causes other dominos to fall."

U.S. markets were closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday, leaving the spotlight on the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries' meeting in Vienna where Saudi Arabia blocked calls from poorer cartel members to cut production to stem a slide in global prices. ...

Dukes, a senior analyst at energy research firm Wood Mackenzie, who expects that drilling activity will continue falling off as more rigs complete their contracts. The day's losses were triggered in part by news that the International Energy Agency again cut its prediction of global oil demand growth, saying demand will grow by only 900,000 barrels per day next year, 230,000 barrels per day fewer t

A couple of years back, I attended a presentation by Tom Eizember, Exxon's head of strategic planning.   During the presentation, Eizember asked how  many in the audience believed in peak oil, and I raised my hand.  I believe  I was the only one.  Exxon does not subscribe to peak oil

And yet.  Exxon has issued its new Outlook (which is well worth a look).
