Only Two Wells Coming Off Confidential List Today -- August 7, 2018


Later, same day, 2:48 p.m. CDT -- no surge? First, they said Saudi Arabia increased production and exports to US to highest level since April, 2017 (see below), and now just hours later, from same source, ".... Saudi Arabia surprises by reducing production and exports...." What a joke. WTI? Flat today; in fact, lower at the close than at the opening but slightly in the green for the day.

Original Post

Enbridge: expects $7 billion of projects to come into service this year (2018).

Surge: amount of oil Saudi Arabia sent to the US last month -- July, 2018 -- was the most in 15 months. We'll see the official EIA data in about two months.  Data points:
  • Saudi to the US: one million bopd
  • that's a 36% jump from June, 2018
  • it was the single biggest monthly flow since April, 2017
You probably noticed has far the price of gasoline has dropped in your neighborhood in the past couple of weeks.

And yet, Bloomberg recently reported that Saudi's overall production decreased in July. Previously posted.

The Book Page

No, this is not going to be about a book that I'm reading. It's not even going to be about a book that's yet available for reading.

This is about a book that is yet to be published. For all I know it has been written but the author and publisher cannot agree on a title. The inspiration for the book came from The Picture of Dorian Gray. But in this case, instead of being set in an English room with a portrait of a mad (?) man, it is set in a cabin in the Pacific Northwest.

The title: The Carver's Cabin.

Some weeks ago, passing articles back and forth with a reader, the eagle-eyed reader spotted this -- "... a two-story carver's cabin had been built."

Neither of us had heard of a carver's cabin and no amount of googling provided an answer. Overnight I heard from the reader. Apparently she was losing sleep over this issue. She e-mailed the writer of that newspaper article asking for the "meaning" of a carver's cabin.

Well, duh. It's a cabin in which one carves.


Actually, it's so much more and so much more specific and so much more interesting.

It turns out to be a cabin -- at least in this story and in the Pacific Northwest -- where totem poles are carved.

To wit:

Only one thing could have made this video better: a cameo appearance by "the log lady" from Twin Peaks.
