Market, Energy, And Political Page -- T+173, July 2017

I was out and about all day. Just got back in. Quickly.

Record. Screenshot from The Drudge Report:


Trump rally extends. From Reuters: Dow sets record-high close; Fed signals gradual rate hikes.

Watergate? Hardly. All they got on Trump, JR: "I love it." And Donald himself released it. Time to move on.

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg visits Williston. Even Reuters, via Rigzone reported the story.

Crude oil inventories drew down a whole lot more than anyone expected a few weeks ago. Time to re-balance dropping fast. Time to re-balance: 47 weeks. What's not to love.

The drawdown:



OPEC production cuts (wink, wink):
Too good not to show again (previously posted):
Perhaps the best chart of the month:

Gasoline demand related to new jobs? I don't know.


Second best chart of the day:


Re-posting: Turkey withdraws from Paris climate accords. Says it wants US financial aid.

Everybody is saying this. Halliburton says oil will spike in 2020 after $2 trillion in industry cuts. Okay. Saudi is hoping.

Expansion. Williams Partners begins first phase of Hillabee expansion. Data points:
  • Alabama
  • enhance the capacity of the partnership's Transco pipeline system
  • will use the new Sabal Trail pipeline to supply gas to Florida as demand for cleaner energy is increasing rapidly in the growing power generation market
  • FERC has approved the project
  • will add more than 1.1 million dekatherms /day of pipeline capacity to the Transco system only four years from now (2021)
  • three phases
  • another huge story that will get little press; meanwhile, a report that a high school is installing a wind turbine gets national attention. LOL.
