Record Prices, Altered Projections, and Russian Threats

In a wild week in oil and gas, crude oil prices hit their highest levels in two years, the International Energy Agency abruptly altered their projections on a return to pre-pandemic oil demand levels, all capped by Russia announcing the fact they are considering ditching dollar-denominated crude oil contracts if faced with more U.S. sanctions. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak noted that ideally they would prefer not to move away from the dollar as it is an international currency used for settlements, but if the Biden Administration continues to impose targeted economic sanctions on Russia, they have no other choice but gradually do that.

Dakota Access Pipeline Avoids Shutdown

The International Energy Agency, which has stepped up its efforts to become a major green energy supporter, appears to have forgotten the reason it was set up as an agency in the first place. In its new report “Net Zero by 2050 – A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector”, the IEA suggests the world cannot make any new investments in oil and gas beyond what is already approved if it hopes to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. According to the report, by the end of 2021, governments should refuse to approve any new oil and gas fields, as well as any new unabated coal power plants and by the end of 2025, new sales of fossil fuel boilers should be phased out. Those are just a few of the more than 400 milestones in the IEA’s report that was released Tuesday, laying out a roadmap the world should follow to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Rising Chinese GHG Emissions

For the first time since national greenhouse gas emissions have been measured, China’s annual emissions in 2019 exceeded those of all developed countries combined. While their per-capita demand is still lower than the average of other OECD countries, China has been trending in the wrong direction in terms of emissions growth. With GHG emissions continuing to grow while the rest of the world commits to reductions, China appears to be focused on its own economic recovery over meeting global climate goals.

IEA Turns Back on Hydrocarbon Development

The International Energy Agency, which has stepped up its efforts to become a major green energy supporter, appears to have forgotten the reason it was set up as an agency in the first place. In its new report “Net Zero by 2050 – A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector”, the IEA suggests the world cannot make any new investments in oil and gas beyond what is already approved if it hopes to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

Hedging to Hemorrhaging

The implementation of an effective hedging program can be a tool that helps ensure certainty of cash flow and provide longer reaction time in the event of a market price collapse. On the flip side of the coin, if prices rebound as they did in the first quarter of 2021, producers are left behind while the market surges. With United States E&P Companies projecting $7 billion in hedging losses for the quarter, it will be important to keep a close eye on which companies choose to continue to hedge early for guaranteed revenue protection and those that hold out or hold off to risk the market volatility in hopes of even more revenue.

Colonial Pipeline Cyber Attack

Colonial Pipeline fell victim to a cybersecurity attack last Friday, forcing it to temporarily shut down all pipeline operations until Wednesday. As Colonial, the nation’s largest fuel pipeline transports nearly half of the East Coast’s fuel supply through a system that spans over 5,500 miles between Texas and New Jersey, the days long disruption caused long lines at gas stations in the Southeast due to distribution problems and panic-buying, draining supplies at thousands of gas stations. Since it will take several days for deliveries to return to normal, drivers have been finding gas stations with little or no gas in some Southeast states.

Energy Market Report Card – Chevron Corporation (CVX)

Chevron Corporation is a publicly traded upstream and downstream integrated energy company with NYSE ticker CVX. Following the FY2020 earnings release and company 10-K, a financial ratio analysis was performed to evaluate the firm. Several performance metrics were benchmarked to competitors in the industry as well as Chevron’s prior years. Although CVX showed declines year-over-year in several of these areas, a major driver appeared to be lost revenue due to commodity prices and the results also outperformed competitors in several areas.
