XOP: Get Ready For The Resilient U.S. Shale Patch To Bounce Back Strong -- Michael Fitzsimmons -- April 13, 2021

Archived.

Summary:

  • With WTI currently trading around $60/bbl, many shale oil producers can now generate significant free-cash-flow.
  • In April, Permian oil production actually ticked up as more rigs are being put to work.
  • Bottom line is that U.S. shale oil production is now expected to grow by 500,000 bpd by year-end.
  • However, the re-opening of the economy due to vaccines, combined with stimulus checks in consumers' pockets, means gasoline demand will be strong and keep oil prices high.
  • As a result, a domestic energy ETF should present an excellent short-term opportunity for investors, and a recent pullback in O&G stock prices is a good entry point.

1Q21 Earnings

Note: this is, hands down, one of the most boring things I to do each quarter. I doubt anyone really looks at it but the day I quit doing this will be the day I miss posting something important. The word "important" is used loosely. Very loosely.

This is so boring that I actually didn't record a thing for 1Q20, one year ago. LOL.

This is linked at the top of the sidebar at the right during earnings season. After earnings -- pretty much after PXD and Apple posts their earnings -- this post will move back into obscurity.

Earnings -- 1Q21
 
January - March, 2021

This is not an investment site. Do not make any investment, financial, job, travel, or relationship decisions based on what you read here or what you think you may have read here. If this is important to you, go to the source. There will be content and typographical errors on this page. If something looks wrong, it probably is.

A lot of anticipation and excitement over this quarter's earnings reports. We're starting to come out of the global pandemic; the lockdowns began in March, 2020, about a year ago. The stock market has had an incredible run since the presidential election about six months ago. 

It's my understanding the first week of earnings season will feature the banks which are expected to have had a huge quarter.   

Notes And Comment -- Late Afternoon -- April 13, 2021

France: the French are absolutely nuts. The country is set to ban short haul domestic flights of less than 2.5 hours duration (won't affect connecting flights) where travel by rail is available. This is all in the name of CO2 emissions. So now, add yet another Covid-19 super-spreader transportation scheme. Whatever. Link here. Meanwhile, the Chinese keep building their coal plants.

AAPL: I doubt the experts would call this a "breakout" since AAPL has traded much higher in the recent past. However, after being in a narrow trading range for the last few weeks, AAPL is starting to show some interesting activity.


Re-posting from earlier today --

AAPL:

  • with a recent move from $119 to $133 / I suggested that AAPL had "broken out" a couple of days ago. More evidence: today AAPL is up almost 1.5%; up almost $2.00; now trading over $133.
  • staggering: and no one seems to notice -- PC shipments notch fastest quarterly growth in twenty years; in twenty years! Are you kidding me. That is completely staggering. The pie has gotten much, much bigger, and the number of slices (number of PC makers) has dropped considerably.
  • China’s Lenovo Group Ltd grabbed the lead with a 25.1% market share, followed by HP Inc, Dell Technologies Inc, Apple Inc and Acer Group, according to the report.
  • expect to see much more at MacRumors later;

Overwhelmed By Too Much Breaking News -- Taking A Break -- Off The Net For Awhile -- April 13, 2021

Pretty much all I need to know about the pandemic:

"Seasonal flu": annual "flu shots" are so "yesterday." No longer needed and no longer recommended when there were only 1,822 total "seasonal flu" cases reported in the entire United States this past season. 

Clotting: six out of sixpointeight million. Yup. Six serious side effects out of 6.8 million vaccinations given (one dose per individual is all that is required). Never before has a medication been taken off the market with a specific side effect identified as occurring in less than one in a million, and there is not even any direct link, cause-and-effect, and, of course, no risk-benefit analysis would result in this craziness. Among those who actually follow this: cognitive dissonance. 

Meanwhile, the odds of the DAPL being shut down

Notes And Comment -- Early Morning -- April 13, 2021

This should have been a slow news day but so much is going on, it's hard to keep up. 

I haven't even gotten to the Spratly Islands story. The Spratly Islands were the focus of a major USAF war gaming exercise at the Air War College when I was a student there back in 1993 - 1994. One wonders if China was preparing for three decades to take advantage of first opportunity to take on a weak, confused administration? China has a three-year window. There seems to be on "line" missing in the graphic at this link.

Inflation number seemed not to be anywhere near as bad as some feared: 1.6 vs 1.5. Seventeen hours ago, before the report was released.

The March consumer price index is expected to show a moderate 0.2% increase in core inflation, excluding food and energy prices, according to economists polled by Dow Jones. On a year-over-year basis, that is a 1.5% pace, compared to 1.3% in February.

March headline inflation is expected to increase by 0.5% or 2.5% year-over-year, up from 1.7% in February. By May, some economists expect headline inflation could be running at an year-over- year rate of 3.5% or more. The headline rate was last at 2.5% in January, 2020. 

Today's story on inflation not yet posted by CNBC but apparently the "early number" was 1.6. 

JNJ: most of the Dow pullback just before the market opened was due to JNJ. I posted the following yesterday. Talk about perfect timing. JNJ closed down 1.34%; closed at $159.48.

At the opening:

  • Dow: was slightly positive throughout the night; then just after the JNJ announcement, Dow goes 3-digit negative; opens 112 points down;
  • NASDAQ: opens up 86 points; what's APPL doing? Oh, that's nice -- up almost a percent; up almost $1.20; now trading over $132. 
  • MNRL: up slightly; up 0.4%; trading at $15.49; closed at $15.70;
  • EPD: down 0.11%; closed at $22.94; down slightly;
  • ENB: down 0.25%; closed at $36.73; absolutely no change;
  • ET: down 1.05%; closed at $8.00; down almost one percent;
  • PAA: down 1.56%; closed at $8.91; down about half a percent;

CLR: update on 1Q21 production here; full results to be posted April 29, 2021, mid-day.
production estimates:

  • 1Q21: 152K bopd (negative impact, cold weather)
  • 2Q21: 160K bopd
  • cash and debt:
  • 1Q21: reduced total debt to just under $5 billion
  • 1Q21: cash balance of just under $100 million
  • "significant reduction from year-end 2020" but that number not provided
  • full year 2021: hoping to reduce total debt to $4 billion or below

AAPL:

  • with a recent move from $119 to $133 / I suggested that AAPL had "broken out" a couple of days ago. More evidence: today AAPL is up almost 1.5%; up almost $2.00; now trading over $133.
  • staggering: and no one seems to notice -- PC shipments notch fastest quarterly growth in twenty years; in twenty years! Are you kidding me. That is completely staggering. The pie has gotten much, much bigger, and the number of slices (number of PC makers) has dropped considerably.

Semiconductor White House summit: I wonder how that went. I haven't seen any updated stories, and I certainly haven't seen any "actionable" recommendations. One wonders if the president even showed up, except, of course, to make opening statements. Certainly no tweets.

WTI: nice way to start the morning. WTI up about 1%; up about 50 cents; now trading just over $60.

Permian pipelines: overbuilt; Plains All-American, EPD, and Magellan will feel the pain.

Covid-19 / JNJ: another example of how fortunate "we" were that President Trump was in charge at the time of the outbreak. 6.8 million JNJ doses administered; 6 serious clotting cases. Take 6.8 million high-risk Americans that did not get the vaccine, how many experienced serious clotting cases? All six cases in women aged 18 - 48. That's an interesting demographic; reminds me of BCP research and BCP use. It should be noted that neither European regulators NOR US regulators were able to identify any other medication that has even been taken off the market with a side effect of one-in-a-million. Never let a crisis go to waste.

RBN Energy: US LNG outlook -- feedgas demand headed to twelve Bcf/d in late 2021.  

After a roller coaster over the past year, U.S. LNG feedgas demand has been holding steady at record levels of around 11 Bcf/d for nearly a month now, with the exception of a few days due to pipeline maintenance. With Train 3 at Cheniere Energy’s Corpus Christi Liquefaction facility online and price spreads to global markets favorable for U.S. exports, that’s where it’s likely to stay, except for maintenance periods — at least until new liquefaction trains start commissioning later this year. Two Louisiana projects, Venture Global’s new Calcasieu Pass facility and the sixth train at Cheniere’s existing Sabine Pass terminal, have both indicated that they will begin exporting commissioning cargoes by year’s end — ahead of their originally proposed construction schedules — a prospect that could boost Gulf Coast feedgas demand to even greater heights by the fourth quarter of 2021. In today’s blog, we wrap up this short series with a detailed look at the two projects and implications for LNG feedgas demand this year.

EIA April, 2021, Dashboards Have Posted

The April, 2021, EIA dashboards have been posted:

The graphics:



The Bakken and the Permian show almost no change month-over-month. Interestingly enough, the Eagle Ford showed the "biggest" change, albeit trivial in the big scheme of things. It surprised me because so many writers / analysts have suggested the Eagle Ford is the fastest declining oil field in the country. 

*******************************
Did It Ever Get Any Better Than This?

For The Archives: Snapshots In Time -- April 12, 2021

US oil production still two million bpd under pre-pandemic levels. Link to Julianne Geiger, oilprice.  

The EIA’s Monthly Drilling Productivity Report is forecasting that for the nation’s most prolific basin, the Permian, production will return to 4.466 million barrels per day in May.

That compares to 3.918 million bpd in May 2020—but that was hardly prior to the pandemic. In January 2020, the Permian basin’s average oil production was 4.793 million bpd. This means that oil production in the Permian Basin is down 327,000 bpd, or 7% under January levels.

4.8 vs 4.5. I just can't get too excited.

Coincidentally, moments after I posted this link/story, it was noted that the EIA had posted the April, 2021, "dashboards."

Moving on. 

Big Oil's dwindling reserves are a major problem. Link here to Cyril Widdershoven over at oilprice. I think I've been reading "these stories" or variations thereof over the past several decades. During the Jimmy Carter administration it was downright dire. 

Even before reading the article, I was thinking -- this is going to be a "money" story -- financial, economic, business -- and not a scientific, geologic story. And it was. This is the nub:

As demand recovers and oil prices climb, there are plenty of potential financial windfalls in 2021 for these companies to take advantage of. 
The question remains, however, over whether or not the companies will invest in new production and reserves or will they use it to pay dividends
Some analysts have already claimed that the current reserve crisis is no real issue, as most IOCs are going through an energy-transition phase. 
However, to invest in the energy transition these companies need plenty of cash to cope with the planned multi-billion-dollar wind, solar, and hydrogen projects, while also keeping investors and shareholders happy. 
As stated by Citibank, “the latest words from an IOC board chairman, ‘Black pays for green’, refer to the 80% of the CFFO (cash flow from operations) generated from oil and gas activities, which is expected to be above 70% by 2030.” 
If reserves are not high enough to sustain “normal” oil and gas operations, the time frame for energy transition success then becomes a major issue too. 

Again, this seems to be a typical "business" dilemma. Warren Buffett addressed it by simply not paying dividends. Much more to the story, of course. But, wow, how things have changed, comparing the current energy situation with that during the Carter administration, and even the Barack "we can't drill our way to cheaper oil" Obama administration. We're so over-supplied with fossil fuel the US has the luxury of shutting down pipelines even after they’ve been built and are safely transporting oil. 

What a great country.

Reader Reads The DAPL Tea Leaves -- April 12, 2021

From a reader, highly edited to maintain anonymity. If the reader does not want this posted, let me know and I will remove:

The tea leaves suggest President Biden won’t step on ND DAPL after dealings with MHA Nation chief Mark Fox who went from 2016 NODAPL to current PRODAPL since 50% of MHA production rides DAPL. 
 
Mark wrote letter for Biden administration, gave to Ness in ND & legislators but not sure it went to DC. 
 
My gut says since MHA got Federal lease exception for 7 ND counties he may have stirred up Biden-American-Indian-appointed staff to push for keeping DAPL OPEN. 
 
Fox has been in Bismarck making his case for new taxes on MHA reservation oil, federal lease exemptions he secured, and keeping DAPL OPEN. Ron Ness wanted his DAPL letter sent to Biden, I read recently. 

Who knows but sounds more positive imho.

More than a dozen of our ND operators use DAPL so I’m hopeful.

The MAG 1 well & some other (JROC1) stratigraphic testing locations appear to be getting ready for EOR to come full circle. I hope to find out more on my upcoming trip to ND, soon. We have multiple tracts around MAG 1 within a stone's throw, as they say. Of course I’m highly exuberant about the Basin in ND.

NARO (National Association of Royalty Owners)

No in-person ND NARO meeting this June. NARO will be virtual per ND NARO president (e-mail). Virtual meeting to be announced. Oklahoma has October NARO in person.

Hopefully "the judge" is listening.

Johns Hopkins Data

Michigan. Link here. The question: what the hell is going on in Michigan? Why isn't the president acting? First thing we do: divert vaccine going to states that "don't need it" to Michigan. The previous president would have tweeted and his minions would have figured out what was necessary. And then a CDC-eSWAT team -- epidemiology special weapons and tactics team -- needs to be deployed to Michigan immediately to help the state health department. If these things aren't being done, it tells me, things are not as bad as some folks are making them out to be. Let's look at the Johns Hopkins data: link here. Total cases per capita, Michigan ranks 41st, well below the US average which is between Louisiana (29) and Minnesota (30). Deaths per capita, Michigan ranks 20th. I would be curious what the story was regarding nursing homes. Some say the state's policy was like that of New York state. I don't know. But right now, in raw numbers, Michigan ranks #1 in new cases, which is truly amazing, considering its population compared to New York, California, Texas, and Flordia.
