Saturn Oil & Gas, TORC Oil & Gas, Whitecap Resources - it's time for harmless oil!

  • Oil

In recent years, there has been a growing trend in modern society that food must originate from the region and a declaration as 'organic' is now considered mandatory. Coffee beans from distant countries should definitely carry the label 'Fairtrade' and blood diamonds are rightly considered frowned upon. Consumers have changed the supply with their purchasing and market power. When will the oil market change?

Top 10 oil production

The global oil market is as large as all other commodity markets combined. It is therefore all the more important that this market functions properly, i.e. that supply and demand can meet in equal quantities to ensure fair pricing. In October 2019, the USA led the list of producing countries with a quantity of 12.6 million barrels per day.

Russia ranked second with 10.6 million barrels, followed by Saudi Arabia with 10.3 million barrels, Iraq with 4.6 million barrels and China with 3.8 million barrels. In sixth place was Canada with 3.6 million barrels per day, followed by Kuwait with 2.6 million barrels, Nigeria with 2.0 million barrels, Norway with 1.5 million barrels and Angola with 1.4 million barrels.

Tolerance despite death penalties

It is no secret that countries that rely on large deposits of raw materials are not necessarily modern and developed. Often dictators and autocrats have such countries firmly in their grip and the revenues tend to seep into private pockets rather than to promote and advance society.

For example, the death penalty is on the agenda in many producing countries and a large part of the proceeds from oil production goes into the military budget. The latter is probably also one reason why the political tolerance of the Western world towards countries with little understanding of human rights is so great.

More than 100 million barrels per day

With its high environmental standards, Canada is virtually the 'organic farmer' among the oil-producing countries. Based on facts, it is probably only a matter of time before a new trend emerges that oil must come from countries that, like Canada, protect the environment and respect human rights.

A development that will also benefit the companies Saturn Oil & Gas, TORC Oil & Gas and Whitecap Resources. The demand for oil in modern society will remain unbroken for many decades to come. Demand will continue to come not only from the energy sector, but also from other processing industries that require crude oil as an ingredient. Would consumers at the gas station prefer harmless fuel?

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.

Baytex Energy, Husky Energy, Saturn Oil & Gas - why Canadian oil now?

  • Oil

The oil industry around the globe had an unexpected start to the week, marked by a collapse in the price of oil. Last Friday, WTI was still trading at over USD 41.00 per barrel and at the start of the week the price fell briefly to below USD 28.00 per barrel. This was preceded by the announcement that Saudi Arabia will increase its production volume because Russia will not participate in a joint cutback. The defiant reaction of Saudi Arabia sent the oil price and the stock markets around the globe into a downward spiral.

Deutsche Rohstoff, Fuchs Petrolub, Saudi Aramco - and another successful player is emerging

  • Oil

With the IPO of Saudi Aramco, the topic of oil investments is once again moving into the focus of the media. People around the globe currently consume around 100 million barrels (159 liters) of crude oil per day for their usual prosperity. The crude oil is processed in a variety of ways and then used for various purposes. Apart from all environmental discussions, the production of crude oil provides a necessary foundation for a modern society. OPEC expects the daily demand for crude oil to rise to more than 110 million barrels by 2040, partly because energy demand is expected to rise by 25% over the same period.
