    • The Editor's Perspective

      • More OPEC oil would boost rosy view of economy
        When Ali Al-Naimi, Saudi minister of petroleum and mineral resources, expressed confidence about global economic recovery last month, he was neither alone in his optimism nor without doubters.
    • Market Journal

      • Weaker payroll data lower oil prices
        Energy prices fell Feb. 4 with North Sea Brent dropping below $100/bbl in London and West Texas Intermediate down to less than $90/bbl in New York, partly in response to weaker-than-expected US payroll data.

    • Industry seeks new offshore rigs, longer onshore laterals in shale
      Oil and natural gas companies are asking oil service contractors for sophisticated technology to drill longer horizontal wells in onshore shale plays and for new offshore rigs that can fulfill increasingly stringent deepwater drilling safety standards and regulations.
    • Ensco to acquire Pride in $7.3 billion deal
      Ensco PLC agreed to buy Pride International Inc. for $7.3 billion, marking the biggest consolidation in the offshore drilling industry since Transocean Ltd. announced plans to acquire GlobalSantaFe Corp. in July 2007.
    • Supply, demand trends still drive oil prices, Senate panel told
      Political unrest across North Africa may have fueled short-term global crude oil price increases but likely won't have the same long-run impacts as supply and demand changes in response to economic growth, experts told the US Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee on Feb. 3.
    • Watching Government: Canadian oil choices
      It was hardly surprising that proponents and opponents of the proposed Keystone XL crude oil pipeline project said that EnSys Energy's recent analysis for the US Department of Energy supported their viewpoints.
    • GOP energy leaders float draft bill to halt EPA's GHG effort
      US House and Senate Republican energy leaders released a draft of their bill aimed at keeping the US Environmental Protection Agency from imposing carbon emissions limits under the Clean Air Act to address global climate change.
    • API: Congress, not EPA, should direct GHG policy
      Congress should direct US policy on greenhouse gas emissions rather than the Environmental Protection Agency, American Petroleum Institute spokesmen told reporters during a Feb. 4 conference call from Washington, DC.
    • EIA: Oil demand to rise by 1.5 million b/d in 2011
      Worldwide oil demand will increase by 1.5 million b/d in 2011 and by 1.6 million b/d in 2012, with continued tightening of global oil markets over the next 2 years, EIA said in its latest Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO).
    • New areas could expand Arctic's oily component
      The Arctic, thought to be natural gas-dominant on the basis of limited exploration, could become more oily as more of the region is more fully explored, delegates at the Arctic Technology Conference were told Feb. 7 in Houston.
    • Watching the World: Israel reconsiders new taxes
      Government officials in Tel Aviv are apparently reconsidering their position concerning new natural gas discoveries off Israel following an alleged attack on a major gas pipeline in Egypt's northern Sinai Desert.
