Good Canadian crude oil
Saturn Oil & Gas from Canada was established around three years ago as the result of a restructuring process and has been focusing on oil production in the province of Saskatchewan ever since. When management took the helm in 2017, the oil price was quoted at around USD 45.00 per barrel. Against this background, the current oil price of around USD 43.00 is not a situation that should cause the company any concern. For this reason, the share price is likely to remain at the level of a year ago.
The Saturn Oil & Gas share is currently attractive for a number of reasons. Firstly, the company operates in a country that prioritizes human rights and environmental protection. Modern society is dependent on oil and for this reason it is particularly important to source the raw material from countries where ESG values are respected. It is also particularly important at Saturn Oil & Gas that the management says it is working on an acquisition. Due to the volatility of the oil market, many competitors are under pressure to move and have to divest assets. CEO John Jeffrey had already announced that he wanted to take advantage of this opportunity.
Human rights at the pump
The oil giant BP can do little at present to counter the disinterest of fund managers and asset managers in the company's shares. The value of the shares has roughly halved in the past 12 months and is currently approaching the low of March 2020 again.
However, companies of this kind have the opportunity to defend themselves against the current situation and lack of interest by offering fuel from different countries or regions, for example. What works for coffee and bananas works even better for crude oil. Imagine if you were allowed to fill up with fuel from the North Sea or Canada and would not unknowingly or against your will obtain oil from countries that do not value human rights. How would you decide?
Choice creates peace
Shell shares were able to recover after the price slide in March 2020, but since their high, they have clearly lost their feathers again. The valuation of the company is once again in a downward spiral. The major investors who could park their assets in the company are lacking important impulses. In addition, there is an overhang on the seller's side, which is why the share is losing value. However, as soon as the pandemic weakens significantly, investors will show more buying interest again.
Shell, with its market power, would also have the opportunity to raise the issue of the origin of oil. In a modern society it is about time that the people at the petrol pump or when paying for oil can decide against oil from despots.
