Yes, The Bakken Never Ceases To Amaze Me -- The Oasis Wold Federal Well -- October 17, 2021

We start with the Oasis Wold Federal well here. At that link, note the very small production for that well as of July, 2020, only about 800 bbls / month.

These wells are now tracked here. 

Note the huge jump in production of the Oasis Wold Federal well, #20266, at this post, where that well and the neighboring wells are tracked.

DRUbit Or Dilbit -- DRUbit-By-Rail -- DBR -- Game-Changer -- October 17, 2021

Note: in a long note like this there will be content and typographical errors. If this is important to you, go to the source.  

A reader alerted me to the story. Thank you.

Elections have consequences: this would not be a story had Resident Biden not canceled the Keystone XL. But here we go again. Assuming Biden's regulators don't stop the merger, and assuming the merger goes through, there will be a "new pipeline" running from western Canada to the US gulf coast.

The "new pipeline" will be above ground and run on two rails.

DBR, not CBR.

From The Star Tribune via Yahoo!Finance:

  • the "new pipeline": Canadian Pacific - Kansas City Southern (one of many links here)
  • new venture: USD Partners -- processes heavy oil with diluent and then loads it on rail tank cars;
  • the "pipeline" bisects the Twin Cities
    • could add as many as 15 to 20 oil trains through Minnesota each month
    • would begin as early as 3Q21
    • destination: Port Arthur, TX
  • I don't know where this stands with regard to approval by US regulators, but it seems it would be difficult to halt the deal when Resident Biden said his administration is looking for additional ways to move "energy" around the nation -- LOL -- in addition:
    • while remaining the smallest of six U.S. Class 1 railroads by revenue, the combined company will be a much larger and more competitive network, operating approximately 20,000 miles of rail, employing close to 20,000 people and generating total revenues of approximately $8.7 billion based on 2020 actual revenues. 
    • so we'll see
  • CP is already the largest rail shipper of oil in the state
  • volume varies considerably: anywhere from five to nineteen "hazardous" trains per month
  • but get this:The new oil trains running from USD's terminal aren't likely to be tallied in those state counts. USD said the oil is not hazardous cargo as defined under U.S. and Canadian transportation regulations.
  • folks can correct me but this is my understanding:
    • Houston-based USD Partners will process / load the diluent-bitumen at their facilities in Hardisty, east-central Alberta, Canada unto the CP-KCS railroad
    • the diluent - bitumen slurry is abbreviated to "dilbit" but DB Partners refers to this as DRUbit-by-rail (DBR) 
    • the DRU facility in Hardisty is, apparently near completion, if not already completed

Folks will argue about this for quite some time, but one wonders whether DBR through the Twin Cities would even be an issue if the Keystone XL had not been canceled and had other pipelines not been delayed, deferred, or canceled (see Liberty Pipeline).

So, "Batman, riddle me this. If there's a five-million-bopd overhang" (Harold Hamm) and we now have fifteen to twenty more unit trains each month carrying oil from western Canada to Texas starting by the end of the year (see this note), why is crude oil continuing to increase in price? -- The Riddler.

October 17, 2021, 8:23 p.m. CT: WTI trading at $83.41. Remember: Jim Cramer called the top at $81 - $82 about a week ago. Later, $83.57 at 10:00 p.m. CT.

So, far Jim Cramer is wrong on the trend -- WTI is going the wrong way. However, one can argue $83 is is same trading "range" as $81 - $82. So, we'll see.

Let's Go Brandon! The Sports Page -- October 17, 2021

NASCAR: first of three races for the "group of eight."

NFL: Dallas, later afternoon game.  Later: how about them Cowboys?

  • Kansas City Chiefs will win today
  • Green Bay clobbers Chicago Cubs
  • Sunday night football: Seahawks vs Steelers (yawn) -- sorry! I know I will get a note from my one Seattle Seahawks fan. Sorry.

Advice to networks:

  • do not cut away for commercials. Use "side-by-side" if commercials must be shown;
  • as soon as a commercial hits, I move to another game, race, or tournament (PGA); I don't have time to waste on commercials
  • once I switch I tend not to move on, unless the game, race, or tournament is really, really boring 
  • next best thing: AI to immediately move to another sports venue when commercial comes on

Same with paywalls.

It seems that story is being reported / repeated more and more. That post linked to Simon Watkins.

Now, this from Alex Kimani: how much oil can OPEC realistically add? For Alex:

  • Only 5 producers in the OPEC+ alliance are able to significantly boost output in the short term
  • Africa's oil giants Nigeria and Angola are the hardest hit, with the pair having pumped an average of 276kbpd below their quotas for more than a year now
  • U.S. shale cannot be expected to fill the supply gap

China and LNG: link to Tsvetana Paraskova -- China seeks long-term US LNG supply amid energy crisis. 

Several Chinese energy giants have intensified discussions with U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporters to secure long-term supply deals in light of record spot prices in Asia, rising demand, and the specter of power shortages. 

China and many other energy importers in Asia are scrambling to procure gas and coal supplies ahead of the winter amid a global energy crunch. The higher demand after the pandemic and the muted supply response have sent China’s coal futures and Asia’s LNG spot prices to record highs in recent days. 

Threatened with power outages, China is now looking to secure long-term U.S. LNG supplies, despite the tense bilateral relations and the trade spat. Long-term deals would also protect buyers from spikes in spot LNG prices, which the market is seeing these days. 

At least five major Chinese energy firms, including China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) and Sinopec, are in advanced discussions for long-term LNG deliveries with American suppliers including Cheniere Energy and Venture Global.

Hey, Greta: coal generation in UK jumps as wind speed drops. Link to Charles Kennedy.

Coal met some 3 percent of the UK’s electricity demand on Friday morning, reaching its highest level of Britain’s power generation in one month, amid lower wind speeds this week and an outage at a gas-powered plant.

The last time the UK generated 3 percent of its electricity from coal was in early September when low wind generation reduced renewable power supply and triggered the massive spikes in UK wholesale electricity prices.

Utility Uniper fired up its coal-powered plant in Ratcliffe early on Friday, while the gas-fired plant in Pembroke, Wales, operated by RWE, suffered an unplanned outage.

Over the past week, gas has consistently accounted for the largest share of the UK’s electricity generation, according to data from National Grid ESO. For example, on Wednesday, gas produced 44.8 percent of Britain’s electricity, more than wind with 19.2 percent and nuclear with 12.6 percent.

Surging natural gas prices and warm and still weather in September forced the UK to fire up an old coal plant that was on standby in order to meet its electricity demand.

Whip Inflation Now! Pop It! October 17, 2021

Inflation: link to The Wall Street Journal

The consumer-price index, which measures what consumers pay for goods and services, rose 5.4% in September from a year earlier. 
Rising energy prices, supply-chain disruptions and an increase in spending have led to higher inflation across the country. 
While prices rose across the board for the year ended last month, the degree of change varied among different geographic regions and populations. 
Among the metropolitan areas surveyed, the largest and most urban places had some of the lowest price increases. Chicago saw an increase of 4.5%, and in the New York City area there was a 3.8% increase. The Northeast region’s rate was nearly a percentage point below the overall national level.

Rural consumers’ mean expenditures on gasoline and used cars and trucks were well above those of urban-area consumers in 2020.

Households outside urban areas spent 37% more than the U.S. average on used cars and trucks, while spending in central cities was 9% lower than the average. The spending category saw one of the largest price increases in September’s CPI, up 24.4% compared with a year earlier.

On the other hand, rent, a heavyweight in central-city consumers’ budgets, saw some of the smallest price increases in September.

Spend some time on this graphic. It speaks volumes:

Inflation if one "takes out" used cars?

  • gasoline: it's always been inexpensive in the big scheme of things; we've done the math several times on the blog
  • giving up Starbucks completely and one sushi dinner / month more than pays for gasoline
    • folks tell their insurance companies they drive 12,000 miles per year
    • new cars average at least 35 mpg (buying pick-up trucks, high-guzzling SUVs, etc, is a choice)
    • 12,000 / 35 = 350 gallons / year
    • $4/gallon = $1,400 / year
      • Starbucks: daily average, $3 / visit
        • 300 visits x $3 = $900 
      • sushi dinner for two = $50
        • once a month = $600

Dining out vs eating at home:

  • generally speaking, a couple can eat at home for less money than the tip when dining out at a fancy sushi restaurant. 
  • if you doubt me, do the math

I have never been to a Slim Chickens, but I will go soon. 

Slim Chickens, wiki:

Slim Chickens is a fast-casual restaurant chain which specializes in chicken tenders, wings, sandwiches, salads, wraps, chicken & waffles, and other items. 

It was founded in 2003 by Greg Smart and Tom Gordon.

The first location opened in 2003 at 2120 N. College Avenue in Fayetteville, Arkansas, inside a building formerly home to a sushi restaurant. 

In 2005, the second location opened in the nearby city of Rogers. 

The chain's expansion accelerated in 2008 with five more company-owned locations opening in Arkansas and Oklahoma. 

In 2013, the first franchise location was opened in Texarkana by businessman Greg McKay.

The next year, six regional franchise deals were made. The company has since expanded with more than 100 locations in 19 states, with international locations in the UK and Kuwait. The 100th location officially opened at 16105 Chenal Parkway in Little Rock on Dec. 18, 2020.

Some random comments:

  • does anyone notice a peculiar theme regarding geographic locations?
  • talk about perfect timing: new location in Williston, ND, at same time Trenton, ND, wins the $2.8 billion lottery;
  • these guys are smart; where do most of the oil workers in Norht Dakota come from?
  • founded in 2003 -- less than twenty years later;
  • we have several locations in DFW metropolitan area; whoo-hoo!

TSMC Update: 2 NM Chips In Development -- October 17, 2021

Link to April 26, 2021, update. TSMC update: 2nm in development, 3nm and 4nm on track for 2022. 

TSMC was the first company to start high volume manufacturing (HVM) of chips using its N5 (5 nm) process technology in mid-2020.

Initially, the node was used solely for TSMC's alpha customers — Apple and HiSilicon. Shipments to the latter ceased on September 14, which left all of the leading-edge capacity to Apple.

By now, more customers are ready with their N5 designs, so the adoption of this node is growing. Meanwhile, TSMC says more customers are planning to use N5 family of technologies (including N5, N5P, and N4) than it expected just several months ago.

For blog entry noting this development, see this link.

Semiconductor chips are tracked at this post at the blog

CLR: 2Q21 -- Anticipating 3Q21 -- October 17, 2021

In a long note like this, there will be content and typographical errors. If this is important to you, go to the source. 

CLR is tracked here.

CLR is scheduled to report 3Q21 earnings, November 1, 2021.

EPS: previous two quarters:

  • estimate, both quarters: 55 cents:
  • actual, both quarters: 91 cents

EPS: 3Q21, forecast: $1.17

This might be a good time to remind folks of CLR's 2Q21 earnings call. Transcript here.

Some highlights, facts and comments interspersed; hard to tell the difference:

  • earnings call focused mostly on the Bakken;
  • no mention of the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale; watch for that in the 3Q21 earnings call; my hunch: won't be mentioned
  • significant free cash flow being returned to shareholders
    • quarterly dividend increased to 15 cents per share; previous 11 cents
    • opted for $1 billion share buyback vs larger dividend
    • record-breaking $634 million free cash flow
  • reduced net debt by $284 million; 2Q21 debt: $4.59 billion
    • $284 million / $4.59 billion = at this rate, only 16 quarters to go, or four years -- in the big scheme of things, that seems pretty amazing;
  • ytd: $1.34 billion in free cash flow
    • most recent quarter accounted for 21%; straight-line: 25%
  • exceeded production guidance; currently delivering 167,000 boepd
  • hedging
    • unhedged on crude oil
    • natural gas: 50% of CLR's volume currently hedged
    • but no hedging whatsoever in 2022
  • free cash flow
    • as of the end of 2Q21, CLR had already generated free cash flow forecast for the entirety of 2021
    • free cash flow potential this year: $2.4 billion; that would be at a slightly fast rater than first half 2021;
  • CAPEX: has not changed; reinvestment rate is trending toward 35%
  • debt outlook looks great at $50 - $55 WTI
  • production forecast, for 2021:
    • 900,000 to one million bcf/day (that needs to be fact checked; transcript error)
  • reminder: new futures contract to start trading by end of year: the Midland WTI American Gulf Coast
    • task force led by Harold Hamm; along with efforts by Magellan and EPD
  • operations
    • brought on 108 gross operated wells: 70 - Bakken; 38 - Oklahoma
    • Bakken type curves right on track
    • 45% more boe per $1,000 spent in the first twelve months than CLR did in 2018
  • DAPL: 1.6 million bopd; Bakken produced on average 1.1 million bopd in May, 2021
  • Long Creek Unit: eleven completions in 2Q21; costing $6.1 million / well
  • most interesting: CLR feels there is an excess of five million bbls/day crude oil production on a global basis;

Elon Musk, Electricity, And Road To California -- October 17, 2021

Elon Musk: I guess because this story posted over the weekend a lot of folks will miss it. It will be interesting if this is covered on CNBC Monday? The Daily Star is reporting that Elon Musk's wealth swelled to an astonishing $230 billion, following a share sale at SpaceX, making Musk richer than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined. From the linked article:

Musk’s obscene personal fortune increased following a share sale at SpaceX as well the strong performance of Tesla stock.

Bezos had previously held the title as the world's richest person, with a boom at Amazon over the coronavirus pandemic seeing his net worth climb to $191 billion (£139 billion).

Musk is now richer than Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined, both of whom have previously held the title as the world's richest person.

Comment: so what's so "obscene" about that?

Road to California: link to The WSJ. This is another must-read story. California scrambles to find electricity to offset plant closures. State to struggle with coming loss of gas-fired power plants and its last remaining nuclear facility to transition to renewable energy.

  • the nuclear plant provides nearly 10 percent of all electricity generated in the state
  • the California Public Utilities Commission has ordered utilities to buy an unprecedented amount of renewable energy and battery storage as the state phases out four natural-gas-fired power plants and retires Diablo Canyon, the state’s last nuclear plant, starting in 2024;
  • from where does one think those batteries will be coming? See previous note: Elon Musk is now the richest man in the world, surpassing Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined.
  • it should be noted there is minimal EV penetration in California;

Not so fast: this story was published three days ago, so it's very current. It appears that ... well, I don't have time for this. If interested, go to the link. This is all I need to know:

It's the latest setback for the project, originally expected to cost $33 billion and be completed last year. Today the vision of shuttling passengers between Los Angeles and San Francisco in less than three hours is a distant dream. The first leg of rideable track, connecting two cities in the Central Valley, won't start until at least 2029, and the project's costs have ballooned to $98 billion.

Little political will seems to exist to either kill the project outright or to give it more resources, leaving construction to continue without a long-term plan.

At the center of the latest dispute is how soon to electrify the line, which rail officials say is a necessity to make the train high speed — the whole idea of the project that voters were sold on. They want to enter into a contract next year for a firm to design and construct an electrified track and system and to maintain it for 30 years, effectively locking in the state for the long haul.

Takeaway: Merced, CA, at center of boondoggle. Might be interesting to track politics in this district.
