US oil production will keep booming in 2024, setting up a possible showdown with Saudi Arabia

US oil production is having a blockbuster year, and 2024 could see fresh highs, putting more pressure on Saudi Arabia to regain control over crude prices.

Analysts at Rapidan Energy estimate US output will average 13.3 million barrels a day next year, up from 2023’s average of 13 million and above the current all-time record of 13.2 million reached in September.

That comes as US oil giants Exxon Mobil and Chevron recently announced increases in their capital expenditure budgets for 2024 as they pour more money into the Permian Basin, the epicenter of the shale boom.

The record supply of US oil has coincided with output cuts from OPEC+ nations like Saudi Arabia and Russia, which have been struggling to lift oil prices.

That’s got some experts warning that the Saudis may reverse course and instead flush the oil market with a flood of supply like they did in 2014, when Riyadh sought to drive out US producers from the market by sinking prices and making output less profitable.

Other analysts have echoed that view, as Doug King, chief investment officer of the Merchant Commodity Fund, told Bloomberg that “OPEC’s strategy looks fragile” and a more “logical plan” would include unleashing a flood of supply to depress prices again.

For its part, Rapidan Energy doesn’t see it that way.

“Currently we do not expect OPEC+ will flood the market to stifle US shale growth,” Bob McNally, president of Rapidan Energy, wrote in an email to the Business Insider. “Ministers remain optimistic that supply-demand fundamentals will be together than many traders expect, helping to support prices.”

Even so, the roaring growth in US oil is undeniable. In addition to their increased spending, Exxon and Chevron have announced mega-mergers this year to buy top shale producers.

“The Permian is going to be the engine of growth not only this year, but in years going forward,” Hunter Kornfeind, an oil analyst at Rapidan, said in an interview.

Shifting tides

While the amped budgets of the energy behemoths highlight the surge in US oil production, they are also a sign of the shifting landscape in the American energy industry.

Growth is not as high compared to prior cycles, when oil companies would reinvest about 100% of the cash they generated into capital expenditures to drill more oil, Kornfeind said. Now, the amount they spend is about 40% to 50% of the money they make.

That reflects a change in the priorities of US oil companies as they focus more on shareholders returns through buybacks and dividends.

Meanwhile, US shale production — which Saudi Arabia targeted in 2014 — isn’t the main risk facing OPEC over the longer term, McNally said.

“OPEC is more concerned about inadequate investment in supply than too much shale,” he said. “It’s important to note that OPEC does not share the IEA’s peak demand view and therefore thinks shale oil growth is less of a threat.”

    Putin’s description of American duplicity and vicious antagonism toward Russia, using Ukraine as proxy, is absolutely correct.  America has disintegrated morally and ethically, and turned into a global monster.  The United States, having had great success everywhere by assassinating rulers and political individuals in many countries, believed that it could destroy Russia and plunder Russia’s natural resources, subjecting it into a slave nation.  Washington’s manipulation of the German traitor, Angel Merkel (married surname actually Sauer), is the foremost example of U.S. treachery.

    But of course, America has been insanely criminal since World War I, at the end of which it affirmed the sadistic Versaille Treaty which devastated and impoverished Germany.  That crime remains the playbook whose plan the Washington elites would like to implement to destroy Russia and achieve American tyranny over the enter planet.

    Sinister American politicoes, of course, do not recognize history, except for their own perversion of it.  The American masses are effectively cultureless and swallow everything their propagandists shove down their throats — a great advantage for the garbage which rules us.

    But as for the future, the proper path would be for Ukraine to be completely partitioned, Lvov (Львов) (German Limberg) should be returned to Poland and Ukraine’s other western portions returned to those eastern European lands which formerly owned them.  All this, of course, will have to await the completion of the self-destruction of America, now occurring under the aegis of the serpentine Democrat Party and its many tentacles.

    The invisible world is going to destroy the world and kill everyone except the real chosen ones. I understand why they want to kill everyone on earth now. I understand now why the mathematics of this reality are locked and cannot be access from earth. Earth is an execution chamber. You are here to die.

    Go look at the flag of Québec. There is four fleurs of lys on it, that is a symbol of nobility and royalty. I told you the earth belong to me, and it is fine to order the genocide of the Jewish race. I own the Jewish race, I can do what I want with them including exterminating their race.

  8. eee on Fri, 29th Dec 2023 6:44 am 

    After the extermination of the Jewish race, I will kill all the Whites Europeans living in Europe.

    By the way we don’t need the Whites Europeans to keep alive the White race. There is no real man in Europe, only gay man. You can find better quality Whites people in Australia, Russian, New Zealand and South Africa. It is time to destroy Europe and the Jewish race.

    This is a old railroad instructions corporate videos. Big corporations run this planet. Politicians are just a front to pacify and motivate the population to work for big corporations. There are already conditioning humans in the video to be good slaves. They push for working team, push to identify ourself as a company member and friends. They have been training humans to be good slaves for a long time.

    Everything start with Europe. Europe is in the business of enslaving the whole world. United nations head quater is in Geneva Switzerland MCS maritime containers shipping company is in Switzerland, we often see their container on US rail road like BNSF. This will only be resolve by blood and destruction and dead of the people living in Europe and the dead and public execution of corporate CEO through Canada and the US.

    Apparently South Africa and Australia would be happy to work with me if I were to become the King of North America. We could work together at killing all the Jews of world and all the Europeans living in Europe

  15. WhereAreMyGuns on Sat, 30th Dec 2023 5:13 am 

    Apparently some Africa nations are going to dumb the Africa French Francs that was used by France and Europe to steal natural resources from Africans. I guess Europe is on its way out and losing influence on the international scene. Fuck Europe and fuck the Jews

  16. WhereAreMyGuns on Sat, 30th Dec 2023 5:19 am 

    There is not enough natural resources for the whole planet, it is time to cut out of international trade Europe, UK and Israel to save natural resources for the rest of the world

    You go from a steam train to a diesel train. They do this to justify the theory of evolution and hide the fact that we are slave to them. They produce video like this to convince you that the theory of evolution is real. We never invented anything. They transfert their technologies and knowledge to us. Notice how they explain to you the technical evolution of train propulsion from steam to diesel. They do this to convince people that the theory of evolution is real and the historical past is real. They gave us a false so you believed in the theory of evolution so you dont see that you are slaves. They also introduce you to the concept of big corporation as needed to move forward and teach you to not question big corporation decisions

    I believed they try to destroy the Whites race with the Jews, diversity, inclusion, gay agenda because only the White are intelligent enough to fight them and win against them. I think this is why they are trying to destroy Whites nations but not China, Japan, Thailand.

    They said that train companies had their own machining shop. They came with their tech to colonized earth. Just like that out of nowhere, ability to machine steel with a lathe or milling machine appear like that magically.
