BP, Exxon, Shell, Saturn Oil & Gas - Crude oil up to USD 100 in May?

  • Oil

In recent weeks, even experienced investors have learned a lot about the oil market. When the price of WTI slipped into the red in April 2020, this was a first in the history of black gold. On the one hand, the oversupply of producers put pressure on prices, but speculators also caused the distortions. It was a dangerous mixture on the expiry date of the May contracts. In two weeks' time, the June contracts expire and the price development is eagerly awaited, but this time it can also go the other way.

BP, Exxon, Saturn Oil & Gas - North America and EU ready for oil deal?

  • Oil

Something is brewing in North America, because nothing less than social and economic independence is at stake. COVID 19 has shown that dependencies in the supply chain pose great dangers. On the one hand, modern society had to learn how difficult it is to obtain masks and, on the other hand, Saudi Arabia ruined the price stability of crude oil by increasing its production volume. An act that deliberately came at an inopportune moment, because with the measures to stem the spread of the corona virus, the demand for the black gold had already fallen by over 20%. The price level of recent weeks at USD 20 per barrel for WTI will drive a large part of the US oil industry into ruin and increase dependence on the OPEC states.

BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Total - which tanker companies are getting booked now?

  • Oil

The contact restrictions around the globe have led to a decrease in the consumption of crude oil. A large part of the crude oil produced worldwide comes from OPEC countries. These countries depend mainly on the sales revenues from the black gold with their national budgets. The largest producing countries currently include the USA, Saudi Arabia and Russia. In the period before the Corona Pandemic, these countries each produced around 10 barrels (159 litres) per day. At a price of USD 65.00 per barrel, this means that the daily sales revenue was around USD 650 million. The price of WTI today costs around USD 21.50 per barrel, which at the same production rate only corresponds to sales of USD 215 million per day - the cuts are significant.

BP, Enthusiast Gaming, TUI - why these shares are interesting now

  • Investments

The stock exchanges are currently in an interesting market phase. After the price slumps since February 2020, as a result of the spread of the Corona Pandemic, most indices have been able to make significant gains again and are now fluctuating in the middle between the time before COVID-19 and the days when the panic was at its highest. This is no coincidence, as central banks and politicians are all pulling together to provide support, and in some European countries a ban on short selling has even been imposed. In other words, without official market intervention, the recovery would probably have been less rapid.

BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Saturn Oil & Gas - now positioning for the oil rally

  • Oil

Russia and Saudi Arabia are in the middle of an oil war. This was preceded by negotiations on a joint reduction in production volumes in order to ensure price stability in connection with the Corona Crisis and the accompanying decline in demand. Russia has belonged to OPEC+ for three years in an extended circle. This has now come to an end, as no consensus decision has been reached. Saudi Arabia reacted with disgruntlement and has announced that it will increase its production volume. The oil price level now reached of less than USD 25 per barrel for WTI not only makes the US energy economy unprofitable, but also endangers the energy independence of the largest oil consumer. There is therefore enormous pressure to act.
