Oil industry predicts 'perfect storm'


Western analysts presented material saying that with the planned volume of investments in renewable energy sources, the situation on world energy markets in the coming years is unlikely to change in favor of “alternative” energy.


Experts at Rystad Energy, an analytical company, estimated that by 2025, investments in solar and wind energy projects in the world by major oil companies would amount to $ 17,5 billion. Most of this amount - about 10 billion dollars - falls on one company. This is Norwegian Equinor, which really wanted to diversify production. The remaining oil companies are clearly not going to invest heavily in alternative energy sources and prefer to profit from activities in the oil market.

Against this background, it is reported that the oil industry may expect an additional crisis. Analysts say that it can be associated with the segment that is related to offshore oil production - on platforms. It is noted that many companies were forced to suspend their work on the shelf. Also, oil companies in Northern Europe and North America suspend state leases due to a “minus” withdrawal in offshore oil production.

An additional problem is the coronavirus, which has proven itself on several oil-producing platforms at sea. If one person in a limited space turns into a virus carrier, then the drilling platform personnel must be completely changed. At the same time, it cannot be properly disinfected, which causes risks for a shift team of oil workers.

Reported problems of a similar nature, for example, the company Royal Dutch Shell, the companies from Canada, USA, Mexico, Kazakhstan.
A new wave of the crisis is associated with the fact that companies engaged in offshore drilling will not be able to repay previously received loans by the end of this year.

Experts predict the oil industry "the perfect storm." This refers to a set of negative factors that further strengthen the resulting negative effect. A kind of negative output into resonance. This includes the mentioned coronavirus, and the falling volumes of investments in exploration, and the general decline in production, and much more, including general uncertainty in the markets.

Meanwhile, the price of oil continues to creep up. The night before, the price of Brent crude oil exceeded the mark of $ 38 per barrel. Currently, Brent is trading at 37,5-37,6 dollars.

    Again forecasts that are destined / not destined to come true!
    It's a good job to cook up forecasts.
    Although real analytics is necessary for planning, only it should be real research. Responsibly it is necessary to approach everything.

      The main thing, then, is to tell with conviction why they did not come true ... but it’s better to make two mutually exclusive forecasts winked

        It may well be that justification is already ready why this did not happen.
        According to statistics, we say that there and there, do not understand how they think. Here is another "science" ... although, it depends on the "forecasting analysts" themselves.

          “Responsibility” means to hold accountable for one’s actions / omissions.
          What kind of responsibility can there be if they are not responsible for their words.

        Boasts gypsies:
        - I have two sons. The weather is predicted at a time! They go out on the porch in the morning, look at the sky. One says it will rain, and the second says it will not rain!
        And never wrong!)))

          So it is, only instead of the gypsy we substitute the exchange departments of the largest banks earning oil futures. They don’t care where the price goes, the main thing is to have more volatility (price fluctuations), and they hedge risks in both directions. Here it turns out, someone is fighting the “perfect storm”, and someone is in troubled waters ” catches a fish. "

      An ideal storm in the oil industry will be caused by the cyclical nature of:
      - a fall in oil prices means a reduction in exploration and investment in the re-equipment of equipment for oil production.

          Just with cheap hydrocarbons, the production of renewable energy designs cheaper, it becomes more profitable. In the money. In worked out in kW-hours to spent on their production - always loses. For gas for cement, coal for steel, gas and coal for aluminum, oil for transportation of raw materials and structures - use neodetski.

            Of course it is.

            expert opinion, Eenergy.media:
            The fall in oil prices makes virtually all alternative energy is disadvantageous, including the use of wind and solar energy.

              Surprise - little little benefit is added. For the direct processing of cheap fuel into cheap energy is almost independent of the cost of energy. So, interest. But products with a large share of surplus value - sometimes win 50 percent.

                  Well, the cost of coal in the cost of electricity TPP - 10%. The change in the cost of coal three times (in either direction) is a change in the cost of electricity by 3%. With gas and fuel oil - the same.

          Exactly, on the contrary. The coronacrisis generally pushed the EU towards new goals and huge investments in green energy. Car policies and the shift to electric traffic are also accelerating. And the well-known Ilon introduces new batteries for cars with a millionth mileage and stand-alone devices for households. You cannot stop progress.

          Specifically, in Bulgaria, we produce 20,3% of all energy from green sources.

              They are part of green politics and in the next 3-5 years they will equalize prices with normal cars and mileage will become 800 km or more. to charge. The other day, the EU has given us 12 billion euros for stimulating the economy for 2 years, but it will be tied to carbon emissions and green energy, and a lot of it in the economy. But no matter how cool it is, in addition to all other programs.

              But what are the prospects?
              Firstly, it will not work forever to occupy areas not for food products. Depletion of the soil requires a lot of things in order to get an acceptable crop, but here you can’t do with green technologies !!! Those. classic, dirty production WITHOUT IT ANYTHING!
              In general, you can drag a steamed project for some time, but this is not very forever.

      To replace solar energy sources of fossil fuels, it is necessary to build along the entire land part of the equator a continuous strip of solar panels with a width of at least 50 km.
      2. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY.
      To supply the necessary heat (water heating), we need very large areas at a depth of 10-15 km.

          There is such a thing as fundamental physics, in which there is a law of conservation of energy.
          And no matter what the technology will be, solar power plants will always be limited by the amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth. The rest is similar.

            It is right. But talk about the complete replacement of one energy, another, is very much dreamers. Realists suggest combining different systems.
            Moreover, the combination of new technologies for generating energy and new technologies for energy conservation is relevant and practical.

          It limits profitability - the density of energy generated per square centimeter - the area of ​​the piston or turbine, the anode / cathode of the battery / fuel cell.
          For gas and gasoline this is 2 kW / cm2. Other elements, including TVEL AC, have tens of watts. These tens of watts of transmitted power is the alternative energy brake.

            About profitability, the question is complex, because politics, business affairs ... the fashion for "greens" in the end.
            In reality, the profitability of green energy is not visible at all, in the foreseeable future. Experts understand this, but who will ask them then ???

            Oh, 2 kW per cm² of piston - this is for very large diesels. And it’s more logical to consider by volume. As for the capacity of alternative energy - that's right.

        This is real. And technically feasible. Solar power plants are being built
        in deserts with solar reflectors or photocells

            Deserts in sub- and tropical zones - in bulk.
            All the same, giant areas disappear, only dust storms from them.
            And you’ll cover with batteries, at the edges of the forest shelterbelts - and there is electricity,
            and deserts are limited. And jobs are being created: to support all this economy.

                Power lines are being built. And again, the unchanging Elon Musk (what would be without him? smile )
                looking forward: his solution is to charge the batteries.
                In Australia, he supplied the town with solar panels plus batteries.
                Everyone laughed as usual. But it turned out (as usual).
                Australians are wildly happy. They want the idea of ​​propagating.
                Musk is already building 4 gigafactories of batteries. One is built,
                another in the States, one in Germany, one in China. They are not only
                for cars. So there is sun, there is solar technology, there is where
                store electricity.
                In the north it is not so reasonable to mount solar panels - I agree.
                But in hot countries - that’s it. good

                  About Japan, the same thing.

                      We have adopted the concept of the development of thermonuclear energy and this is by no means yesterday, this is tomorrow.
                      Green energy is, so far, an auxiliary tomorrow.
                      I already wrote that this will be a parallel development with energy conservation.
                      But, the industry is not yet ready to switch to unreliable, expensive energy sources ... and it is the main consumer for a very, very long time.

There Newton’s laws were formulated in 1687 (and this is only the generally accepted wording, these questions were asked in ancient Greece). And what, since they are old - need to be changed?

    It's a good job to cook up forecasts.

    The main thing, then, is to tell with conviction why they did not come true ... but it’s better to make two mutually exclusive forecasts winked

    That's exactly what financial analysts do, and combine two mutually exclusive forecasts in one - "if the rate goes up, then the value of N is predicted, and if the rate goes down, then the value of K is predicted." And these analysts make good money ...
