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?


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - China's oil imports at new record high

  • Oil

The Corona Pandemic has turned the world upside down in many areas in recent months. The energy sector has not been able to escape the changes. First the demand for crude oil collapsed and then production was cut back. In the meantime, restrictions around the globe are being eased again and there are still opportunities to position oneself to benefit from the post-Corona upswing. The habits of the population in big cities have changed. Public transport is being avoided due to the risk of infection and instead cars are being moved more. In China, an average of 11.34 million barrels of crude oil were imported per day in May 2020. This record value exceeds the previous record from November 2019 by around 160,000 barrels per day.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell - Revenue and profit increase significantly

  • Oil

The oil price continues to gain momentum and is still trading around 40% below the January 2020 level, and now the right stocks are in the spotlight. In addition to the well-known major oil producers such as BP and Shell, there are also successful producers who are not yet so well known, but who certainly have potential. Last night the young Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas published the results of the past fiscal year. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the company had postponed the release, which is currently nothing special and is officially made possible by an extended deadline.

BP, Chevron, ENI, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell, Total - what investors need to know now

  • Oil

About a month ago, market participants around the world learned that the end of a price slide does not have to end at zero on the expiry date of WTI contracts. Anyone who thought that a barrel of American WTI at USD 0.01, which is 159 litres of crude oil, would be a special bargain on the expiration date and took the chance was taught an expensive lesson. The expiration date of 20 April 2020 will go down in history with an initial negative settlement price of USD -37.63. The USA is known to be the land of opportunity and this seems to be another chapter.
