Crude Oil $100 Sooner Than You Think / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSentiment in the crude oil market has been quite pessimistic lately after some disappointing economic data fueling fear over the strength of the U.S. recovery, and signs of a possible China slowdown. This is on top of the market distress already exerted by the Europe sovereign debt and banking crisis.

Oil price was down 8% for the week, with the front-month August delivery settled at $72.14 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Gold, Oil, Spills and Chills / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: HRA_Advisory

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn the rare occasions that political rhetoric seems to understate a problem, it’s big.  BP has a big problem in the Gulf of Mexico, which they are now properly laying out.  Blaming the company for the spill is possibly a bit overdone since it was after all an accident.  However, claiming they and by extension the industry haven’t been responsible enough with the work seems to be on the mark.   This spill is going to impact deep water oil exploration and extraction for years to come.  The cleanup will continue through the year, as will discussion of alternate energy sources.

Deepwater Drilling Gulf Of Mexico Fundamentally Flawed Protocol In Use Of Cement / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dr_Stephen_Rinehart

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBackground: Cement is a quasi-hard material that is 8X to 10X stronger in compression than tension. It has been the industry standard for sealing oil wells for decades. As deepwater drilling progresses in the Gulf of Mexico (and worldwide), there is an increasing need for much higher strength “cements” and significant research has been devoted to this area in past decade. MMS (Mines Management Services) had projects ongoing in 2001-2002 to determine industry cements to produce a tight seal in an annulus (Ref: Long Term Integrity pf Deepwater Cement Systems Under Stress/Compaction Conditions, Report 3 Issued Nov 19, 2002 by Cementing Solutions).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have remained sidelined in Oil for quite some time now as we judged the market lacked long-term direction. Although a recovery began after the steep sell-off in May, we decided the subsequent rally was probably a correction rather than a resumption of the previous bull trend.

Deep Water Oil The Final Frontier / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Andrew_McKillop

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBP's disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, leading to accusation by Obama himself of corporate recklessness, and to huge numbers of lawsuits for damages and loss of earnings, is also capable of leaving very long-term ecological damage. This disaster however underlines the basic problem facing all the major Western oil corporations, and most national oil companies - outside the OPEC states, Russia and a few other oil producer countries with large or relatively low cost, onshore and shallow offshore oil reserves and an export surplus.

It’s THE Most Profitable Oil in North America / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Keith_Schaefer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFew investors realize that one sector of the heavy oil market is the most profitable oil in all of North America – it’s called cold flow heavy oil. Think of it as light heavy oil, thick and gooey enough that it needs a pump to get out of the ground, but no so thick that it needs expensive heating to make it flow – hence the name cold flow.

Design Considerations for a Shock-Hardened Deepwater Drilling Rig and Plausibility Argument for the Loss of the Deepwater Horizon Drilling Rig / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dr_Stephen_Rinehart

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWWII resulted in many ships (naval surface combatants, subs and commercial tankers) were totally disabled by non-contact underwater explosions and/or air blast loadings (near miss). Also systems on one end of the ship were being knocked-out by a bomb hitting another part of the ship due to the severe shock loadings (think earthquake “g” loads multiplied by an actor of 10X, 50X or 100X).  As a result research in underwater explosions was intensified and in Dec 1946, the Underwater Explosions Research Division (UERD) was established by Dr Alfred Keil (the Division’s First Director). Dr Keil came from Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institute and wrote the classical paper on Underwater Gas Bubble Dynamics (gas bubbles that form underwater from an explosion and can attach themselves to a ship’s hull and cause huge damage or sink the ship. This is why we are using so much dispersant to dilute the huge methane gas bubbles to protect the surface ships such as Discovery Enterprise.

Crude Oil Realities / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout a doubt, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is an environmental disaster.  Unfortunately, as far as the global economy is concerned, Mr. Obama’s six-month moratorium on new offshore drilling is an even bigger disaster. 

Remember, the supply of crude oil is already struggling and in order to offset the ongoing depletion, the world desperately needs to find new oil-fields.  Thus, by stopping new exploratory drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the US establishment is wasting precious time.

What the End of the Oil Age Looks Like / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard Heinberg writes: Following the failure of the latest efforts to plug the gushing leak from BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, and amid warnings that oil could continue to flow for another two months or more, perhaps it’s a good time to step back a moment mentally and look at the bigger picture—the context of our human history of resource extraction—to see how current events reveal deeper trends that will have even greater and longer-lasting significance.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: While it looked like they were headed towards the $90 a barrel level, oil prices hit a wall in the spring. Rattled investors who worried about the direction of the global economy shunned black gold in favor of real gold as a means of preserving capital.

But don't be fooled. The spring retreat simply set the stage for a second-half rally.
