For me, the most important post of the past week may have been this one.
Internationally, Saudi cash reserves continue to dwindle. For the archives: despite OPEC / non-OPEC cuts (wink, wink) US crude oil inventories unexpectedly increase.
Nationally, this was the most important story -- at least for American drivers: the average nationwide gasoline price is now at the lowest for this point of the year since 2005. For a nation of non-EV drivers, I just can't imagine a more incredible turnaround -- since 2005. That was before Barack Obama was President Obama. Wow.
The most interesting story in the Bakken might have been posted today. Kraken Operating reported three incredible DUCs -- leases/permits the company bought from CLR, and I think these are better wells than what CLR was getting. This is a good area in the Bakken but not seen as one of the best areas and yet the IPs were incredible.
XTO reports an incredible well after being shut in for a few months
Random update of an MRO re-frack
