• Saudi Arabia’s Gift To America’s Shale Producers

    • Date: 10/03/18

    It’s amazing how fast we’ve come to take for granted that the United States is now a petroleum-exporting nation. The first crude exported in over 40 years left the Port of Corpus Christi for Italy on a small tanker on December 31, 2015. Exports have risen so fast that now America ships out more petroleum […]

  • ‘Stranded Asset’ Argument Against Coal, Oil And Natural Gas Is Bogus

    • Date: 04/03/18
    • Jude Clemente, Forbes

    The idea of coal, oil, and natural gas reserves becoming “stranded assets” from unanticipated or premature write-downs is bogus. The reality is that demand is so ever growing that the balance sheets of our fossil fuel companies get consumed in about 10 years. The International Energy Agency, adviser to the most advanced economies in the world (the 34 […]

    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Recent reports indicate that major repairs are required on 500 offshore wind turbines in United Kingdom waters, and nearly two hundred more at sites off the Danish and German coasts. Whether this is type failure or just normal wear and tear is as yet unclear, and is, according to Danish news reports, in dispute. One […]

  • OPEC’s Final Showdown With Shale

    • Date: 25/02/18
    • The Daily Telegraph

    OPEC is heading for a final showdown with shale. Its grand alliance with Russia to cut output has revived its own fortunes temporarily by boosting prices but it has also cranked up drilling across America. That’s good for the world’s largest economy and biggest consumer of crude but bad news for some of the major producers in […]

  • The Price Of Green Madness: California’s Oil Collapse

    • Date: 22/02/18
    • Forbes

    The collapse of the oil industry in California, once our second-most-important producing state, is a very sad thing to see. The U.S. shale revolution has completely passed the state by. Although domestic crude oil production has reached heights not seen since the early-1970s, and will actually be setting new records this year, California’s oil output […]

  • John Constable: Labour’s Energy Nationalisation Plans

    • Date: 18/02/18
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, has set out his vision for nationalising the UK energy sector. Rather than returning to Attlee’s centrally controlled system he seems determined to steer energy provision, particularly the electricity industry, back towards a form of distributed generation and Municipal Trading that would in practice be an even […]

  • OPEC’s Oil Price Nightmare Is Coming True

    • Date: 13/02/18
    • Julian Lee, Bloomberg

    The latest surge in U.S. oil output will probably hasten the country’s rise to the top of the producer pile. More important, it’s starting to look as though at least half of OPEC’s nightmare scenario for 2018 — a surge in shale output and slowdown in demand growth — is coming true. Last week’s avalanche of releases […]

  • The UK’s Costly Electricity Could Prevent Further Emissions Reductions

    • Date: 07/02/18
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    The UK government’s latest release of production emissions data shows that cuts in all sectors other than power generation have stagnated. However, the cost of further reductions in electricity generation emissions will inhibit the electrification needed to galvanize emissions reduction trends in those sectors, in transport for example, which is now the single largest source […]
