@nlepan In Mexico, there has been a sharp increase in gas prices that has led to an eruption of looting of gas stations. Protesters also continued to block highways, burn tires and seize gas stations, snarling traffic and jeopardizing fuel supplies across the country. http://www.ctvnews.ca/business/unrest-over-mexico-gasoline-prices-erupts-into-looting-1.3228233 #gas #oil #energy

@nlepan The cold snap gripping B.C. drove electricity consumption to an all-time high Tuesday, according to BC Hydro. Demand for power peaked at 10,126 megawatts between 5 and 6 p.m., the utility provider said, breaking the previous record of 10,113 that was set back in November 2006. http://bc.ctvnews.ca/electricity-consumption-hits-all-time-high-in-b-c-amid-cold-snap-1.3227832 #energy #BC

@nlepan A court in London will decide in coming weeks whether Royal Dutch Shell can face trial in the UK over oil spill allegations in Nigeria, a decision some legal experts predict could attract more cases against multinationals in Britain. The Nigerian communities are saying that their cases are unfit to be hear in Nigeria while Shell is denying responsibility for the spills in the Delta because it was due to sabotage and illegal refining. If this case goes forward, it could bring more cases to the UK. This is reminiscent of how Exxon had its case brought to Canadian courts. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-shell-nigeria-lawsuit-idUSKBN14Q1BR Amsterdam: $RDSA #energy #oil

@nlepan Traders have a challenge in trying to spot when the announced OPEC production cut deal translates into on-the-ground reductions. The problem is both the quality and timeliness of production data. Stockpiles are considered the best data but are published with the longest lag, while upstream and midstream data tend to be based on estimates. For the moment, prices remain the clearest indicator of where OPEC's cuts are happening. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-06/will-opec-deliver-promised-output-cuts-here-s-how-we-ll-know #energy #oil

The short answer is that a series of policy decisions – most significantly, upgrading infrastructure and signing fixed 20-year deals with private companies to produce electricity – have increased prices over the past decade. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/why-does-electricity-cost-so-much-in-ontario/article33453270/ #energy #Ontario

@nlepan Enbridge $ENB has approved a new stream of Canadian heavy crude for export to the US, but according to traders, no one wants its. Enbridge's plan to squeeze more heavy crude onto its pipelines by shipping the new grade is its latest attempt to resolve bottlenecks in the 2.85 million barrel per day Mainline system, traders in Calgary said. Limited pipeline capacity has lead to a glut of crude building up in storage in Alberta, widening the discount on Canadian producers' oil and has deterred some companies like Royal Dutch Shell and Statoil ASA from building oil sands projects. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-canada-crude-enbridge-idUSKBN14U1C7 #energy #Canada

@nlepan Europe Left in Cold as Frost Triggers Global LNG Hunt. European countries from France to Greece are losing out in a search for liquefied natural gas cargoes amid a freezing spell, as ships sail to buyers in Asia willing to pay a higher price to meet peak winter demand. The lack of LNG has prompted France’s grid to call for more of the fuel to be supplied by southern terminals and issue the highest warning level on supplies for a second day. Shortages were experienced in Turkey, and Spain also boosted gas usage. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-10/europe-left-in-the-cold-as-frost-triggers-global-hunt-for-lng #gas #energy

Yes, the longer term chart for Lightbridge looks rough, but so do most of the #Uranium sector for the last 5 years. They provide enhanced nuclear fuel that is more efficient and safer due to Zirconium-Niobium cladding on the outside and a Uranium-Zirconium core. Seems like an interesting idea and they have a partnership agreement with $ARVCF Areva.

@nlepan Potential delays looming over three major U.S. natural gas pipeline projects are threatening to sour a popular wager on the fuel. Gas for delivery in April 2018 is trading at a deep discount to the march contract, for traders this signals there will be lots of supply by the end of next winter. The spread between these two contracts is known as the widow maker because it is so volatile but it could become a premium if fuel from pipelines meant to come from shale basins in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, arrive on time. However, there are regulatory setbacks are threatening the timeline of this trade. #trading #energy https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-12/a-popular-u-s-gas-bet-s-at-risk-of-crumbling-on-pipeline-logjam?

@nlepan Reducing Norway’s oil dependency and living up to campaign promises is proving a costly affair for Prime Minister Erna Solberg. Struggling to keep up output after 40 years of production, and hit by the largest decrease in oil prices over a generation, Solberg’s government saw its plans laid to waste soon after taking power, in 2013. The government plans to withdraw money for a second consecutive year from the $880 billion wealth fund and spend 226 billion kroner ($27 billion) of its oil revenue, equal to almost 8 percent of the economy. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-13/kicking-the-crude-habit-doesn-t-come-cheap-for-richest-scandinavians? #energy #oil #Norway

@nicholaslepan How Does Geography Figure Into the Full Cost of Electricity? Not all power plants are the same. They certainly don’t cost the same to build or operate. But what if I told you that one number, dubbed the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE), puts it all into black and white for decision makers: This plant’s electricity is cheaper than that one’s, or it isn’t. LCOE is the estimated amount of money that it takes for a particular power plant to produce a kilowatt-hour of electricity over its expected lifetime and is typically expressed as cents per kilowatt-hour or dollars per megawatt-hour. http://spectrum.ieee.org/energywise/energy/policy/how-does-geography-figure-into-the-full-cost-of-electricity #energy
