Internationalists Are Pushing The World Towards Globally Engineered Economic Warfare thumbnail

Over a year ago I published an essay entitled ‘The Linchpin Lie: How Global Collapse Will Be Sold To The Masses’. This essay addressed efforts by the ever malicious Rand Corporation to create a false narrative surrounding the possibility of global collapse. Linchpin Theory, as it was named by it’s originator and Rand Corp. employee, […]

It doesn’t matter what’s going on in the global markets. Like a lion stalking its prey, our commodities coverage keeps circling back to the natural gas sector.

Oil Market Weighs Fear and Reality thumbnail

Earlier this week the wise oil-market watchers at PVM, a brokerage and consultancy, summed up the state of the market. “Not a day goes by without a political, economic, international or data event that adds further color and often confusion to an already very complex scene,” said analyst David Hufton. “Who needs the distraction of fiction […]

Coal Company Pain Accelerates as Bankruptcy Cases Rise thumbnail

The coal business, after fueling the Industrial Revolution and powering U.S. growth for much of the past century, is now beset by a glut of cheap natural gas and tighter regulation. James River Coal Co. (JRCCQ) in many ways epitomizes these ills. After filing for bankruptcy almost four months ago with plans to sell its […]

As Russia’s Isolation Grows, Oil Companies Caught in Middle


The confrontation between Russia and the West took a turn for the worse with the downing of a Malaysian airliner on July 17, and that could spell trouble for several major oil companies operating in Russia. Just one day earlier, U.S. President Barack Obama slapped sanctions on Russia over its ongoing role in the destabilization of Ukraine. The […]

Old-school traders of physical oil teach hedge funds a lesson


A near 10 percent drop in international oil prices since last month has taught a painful lesson to many hedge funds and other speculators in energy futures: you can ignore physical markets for only so long. Hedge funds piled into what seemed a one-way bet in early June, grabbing up oil contracts as the rapid […]

Oil Prices Rise on Plane Crash in Ukraine

Oil Prices Rise on Plane Crash in Ukraine thumbnail

Oil prices jumped on news that a Malaysia Airlines 3786 passenger plane went down in eastern Ukraine, as traders worried the crash could become a potential flash point that presented another threat to global crude supplies. Israel’s decision to send ground troops into the Gaza Strip also lent support to prices, which in recent weeks […]

The end is nigh for high sulfur European gasoil, despite pockets of demand


It has not been a great year for high sulfur gasoil consumption in Europe, by any stretch of the imagination. First, the winter was warm across the Continent. Unlike in the US which encountered freezing temperatures in January-February, temperatures were mostly pleasant on this side of the pond. This dampened demand for heating and in […]

Oil Is Vulnerable to Geo-Political Risk


Bruinhill Partners’ Michael Gurka and “Oil’s Endless Bid” Author Daniel Dicker discuss the price of Oil on “In The Loop.”

The deteriorating economic outlook

The deteriorating economic outlook thumbnail

The third and final estimate (until the annual GDP revisions) of first quarter 2014 real GDP growth released June 25 by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis was a 2.9% contraction in GDP growth, a 5.5 percentage point difference from the January forecast of 2.6% growth.

Are We Running Out of Oil?


Dr. Kent Moors writes: For many years, a number of industry experts have been sounding the alarm that America, and the world, are about to run out of oil. This is nothing new. In 1914, the Bureau of Mines said that U.S. oil reserves would be exhausted by 1924. The Interior Department said global reserves […]

Don’t Worry, Monsanto Has Plans to Feed the World thumbnail

The 4,400 acres Dustin Spears farms with his father-in-law stretch for 50 miles across northern Illinois in an archipelago of disconnected, mostly rented plots.

CEO Of One Of The World’s Largest Energy Majors “Sees No Reason For Petrodollar”

CEO Of One Of The World’s Largest Energy Majors “Sees No Reason For Petrodollar” thumbnail

The USA is fast running out of friends to support its ‘exorbitant privelege’. Having alienated the Germans over NSA-eavesdropping, ‘boomerang’d the Russians into de-dollarization, tariffed and quantitatively eased China into diversification, and finally ‘punished’ France into discussing the dollar’s demise; it appears no lessor person than the CEO of Total (the world’s 13th biggest oil […]

Harvest the fruits of the land


The growing world population and potential return from crops has made farmland very attractive Farmland as an investment has traditionally been the preserve of wealthy families, more recently attracting interest from institutional investors and pension funds as they look to income producing real assets that can match their liabilities.

The Real Significance Behind That Oil Export Hoopla


There was a lot of hoopla last week over the news that the U.S. Department of Commerce had seemingly loosened rules governing the export of condensate — light weight hydrocarbons recovered from oil and gas wells. The excitement was palpable; shares in oil refiners sold off. Was this the start of the big policy shift […]

Russian Hackers Targeting Oil and Gas Companies


Russian hackers have been systematically targeting hundreds of Western oil and gas companies, as well as energy investment firms, according to private cybersecurity researchers. The motive behind the attacks appears to be industrial espionage — a natural conclusion given the importance of Russia’s oil and gas industry, the researchers said. The manner in which the […]

You can’t build a future on finite energy sources


Every few years we are informed that we are approaching ‘peak oil’ – the point at which maximum petroleum extraction is reached. And then new sources are found in previously unexplored areas like Greenland and the Artic, or as if by magic the new extractive technique of fracking appears to offer some relief. So, ‘panic […]

America’s Oil Weapon: The Automobile

America’s Oil Weapon: The Automobile thumbnail

Higher oil prices threaten the U.S. economy, but not like they used to. North Dakota is a reason for that. Changes in America’s car industry and driving habits are bigger ones. Amid sectarian violence in Iraq, oil prices have risen, and it isn’t hard to imagine them going higher. That is unwelcome for a U.S. […]

Peak Oil’s Revenge


A slew of events over the past few months have driven the price of oil higher. The ISIS incursion in Iraq has set up the entire Middle East for a multinational civil war.

Gazprom Ready To Drop Dollar, Settle China Contracts In Yuan Or Rubles


A little over a month ago, when Russia announced the much anticipated “Holy Grail” energy deal with China, some were disappointed that despite this symbolic agreement meant to break the petrodollar’s stranglehold on the rest of the world, neither Russia nor China announced payment terms to be in anything but dollars. In doing so they […]
