The Energy Report - Refinery in Flames!
Phil Flynn I Price Group - ltfutures - 18.06.2014

While Iraq's oil exports surge the fall of the Baiji Refinery is to ISIS terrorists is not providing any comfort to the global market. The refinery which supplies Bagdad with gasoline and diesel shows that the situation in Iraq is not getting better. Oil companies are pulling out nonessential personnel even in the south of the country where at least so far things are relatively held. Oil companies are trying to export while the exporting is good yet the possibility of an oil shock is rising the south of Iraq starts to fall. While reports by the Energy Information Administration showing that North Dakota oil output hit a record 1million barrels a day, will the Fed acknowledge the risk and signal a pause in the taper if things get worse? Or will it be oil prices spikes are transitory? In the meantime oil and products are back on the rise.

While the Iraqi Army tries with some success to defend Baghdad, President Obama decided against immediate airstrikes allowing Sunni extremists to continue to commandeer US military equipment and execute captured soldiers. Dow Jones reported that parts of Iraq's main oil refinery were in flames Wednesday as government forces fought to repel militants who gained partial control of the oil facility, Iraqi security officials said. Sunni militant fighters behind a week-old offensive that has claimed several major cities and towns in northern Iraq attacked the refinery in the northern city of Baiji overnight and seized part of the installation, an oil ministry official in the country's north said. The official said employees fled the refinery as it came under attack, the latest in a weeklong siege of the oil hub. The fighting over the main source of Iraq's refined fuel for its domestic market doesn't affect production or exports from the country's chief oil fields and facilities in the south, where militants haven't reached.

In the southern parts of Iraq its business as usual. Bloomberg News reported that Iraq's oil exports from its southern terminals in the Persian Gulf are poised to surge at a time when fighting has plunged the country's north into chaos and Islamist militias are advancing toward Baghdad. Exports of Basrah Light Crude, the country's main grade, may reach about 2.8 million barrels a day next month, according to a preliminary loading plan obtained by Bloomberg News yesterday. That's 11 percent more than this year's average and would be close to a three-decade high of 2.799 million barrels that Iraq said were exported from all its ports each day in February. OPEC's second-largest producer shipped 5.43 million barrels from Basrah on June 11, Iraqi Oil Minister Abdul Kareem al-Luaibi said in Vienna the next day.

Yet can that continue if Bagdad is staved of oil products and cities continue to fall. Baghdad citizens may lose. In the mean-time the Kurds are taking full advantage of this. While watching the Iraqi oil fall apart the Kurds moved in and took over oil and production facilities.

Reuters reports that Iraqi Kurdistan has built a link connecting Kirkuk to its newly-built pipeline to Turkey, its minister of natural resources said, potentially cementing Kurdish control over the northern oil hub and reducing its reliance on Baghdad. The link could allow the Kurds to start exports of Kirkuk crude oil through their own network, giving them a major source of independent revenue and boosting any ambitions of sovereign statehood as Iraq falls into increasing disarray. The new link connects Kirkuk's Ivana dome to the Khurmala dome out of which the Kurdish pipeline runs. "That blue line was finished," Ashti Hawrami, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) minister for natural resources, told a conference in London, pointing to a map of the pipelines. Baghdad's military retreat from the north under a lightning assault led by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) last week allowed the KRG's Peshmerga forces to seize control of long-disputed Kirkuk and its oil reserves - the potential economic lynchpin of a sovereign Kurdish entity. But the main 600,000 bpd Kirkuk pipeline, which accounted for the bulk of Iraq's northern crude oil exports, has been offline since March following insurgent attacks. Attempts to repair it have been thwarted by Islamic militants in the region, who have targeted engineers trying to fix sections of the line that pass through territory outside KRG control. With Baghdad busy fighting ISIL, the Kurds are pushing ahead with oil exports that could help bolster their autonomy. Oil exports will increase to 200,000-250,000 barrels per day in July, and then to 400,000 bpd by the year.

What is more in a stunning development, Turkey may for the first time ever support a Kurdish state. Ryan Grim reported that "In a statement that could have a dramatic impact on regional politics in the Middle East, a spokesman for Turkey's ruling party recently told a Kurdish media outlet that the Kurds in Iraq have the right to self-determination. The statement has been relatively overlooked so far, but could signal a shift in policy as Turkey has long been a principal opponent of Kurdish independence, which would mean a partitioning of Iraq. "The Kurds of Iraq can decide for themselves the name and type of the entity they are living in," Huseyin Celik, a spokesman for the Justice and Development Party, told the Kurdish online news outlet Rudaw last week. The Kurds have been effectively autonomous since 1991, when the U.S. established a no-fly zone over northern Iraq. Turkey, a strong U.S. ally, has long opposed the creation of an independent Kurdistan so that its own eastern region would not be swallowed into it. But Celik's statement indicates that the country may be starting to view an autonomous Kurdistan as a viable option -- a sort of bulwark against spreading extremism within a deeply unstable country.

To add even more support that API reported a big drop in 5.7 million barrel drop in crude supply. We did see a build of 255,000 in Cushing Oklahoma though. The API also said gasoline stocks declined by 48,000 barrels and supplies of distillates rose by 531,000 barrels.

Russia has cut supply of gas to Ukraine but according to the FT the presidents of Russia and Ukraine have discussed the possibility of a ceasefire in the insurgency-torn eastern regions of Ukraine. Of course a cease fire does not mean the natural gas will begin to flow but it may be a sign of progress though we have to remain skeptical. Yesterday oil jumped after reports natural gas pipeline explosion that was carrying Russian natural gas across Ukraine to Europe. The Ukraine government said it suspected it may have been a "terrorist act".

Steamy temperatures should give natural gas a lift. NatGasWeather.com Daily Weather Forecast says that "Very warm to hot conditions are expected again today over the central and eastern US as highs warm into the 90s over many high populations cities such as Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. A weather system will track out of the northern Rockies over the coming days with much colder than normal temperatures. It will eventually attempt to push into the Great Lakes and Northeast this weekend. However, high pressure should hold strong and prevent it from pushing very far into the US while also weakening it. The southern US will continue to warm into 90s and low 100s for quite some time as high pressure dominates. The western US remains much cooler than normal due to a Pacific weather system moving through, but will gradually warm as the week progresses Weather systems will track across the US during the last week of June with areas of showers and thunderstorms. This will lead to temperatures remaining in the 70s and 80s across much of the northern US. High pressure extending over all of the southern US will continue to bring very warm conditions (90-105?F) and moderate to strong cooling demand. There is an increasing threat of hotter temperatures during the first week of July and could impact many high populations areas of the southern and eastern US. Trend: WARMER (especially after June 28th).

The Fed may also move us today. A pop in inflation in the CPI and record beef, egg, poultry prices against an anemic recovery is going to present challenges for the Fed. Not to mention the spike in oil. Gold prices holding steady but platinum and palladium rebounding after the recent strike settlement correction.

Halvers Woche: "USA unter Trump: Leider Zustände wie im alten Rom"
Börse Frankfurt - Indizes - 20.01.2017
20. Januar 2017. MÜNCHEN (Baader Bank). Das partnerschaftliche Verhältnis der USA zu Europa läuft Gefahr, zu einer Abhängigkeitsbeziehung wie im Römischen Reich zu werden. Entweder man fügt sich Cäsar Trump oder er senkt den Daumen über seine Vasallen. Hinter seiner Aussage, die Nato sei hinfällig, steht insgeheim die klare Forderung an seine Schutzbefohlenen, deutlich höhere Beiträge in die Nato-Kasse zu zahlen. Als knallharter Geschäftsmann gilt bei ihm die Devise: Keine Leistung ohne Gegenleistung. Natürlich weiß Trump, dass ein politisch zerstrittener Hühnerhaufen in Europa ohne amerikanischen Beistand einem Fuchs - zum Beispiel einem mit russischem Fell - derzeit wenig entgegenzusetzen hat. ... mehr

CMC Markets - Indizes - 20.01.2017
Die Einlassungen eines Donald Trumps gleichen dem Griff in eine Wundertüte – man weiß im Vorfeld nie, was man bekommt. Sicher ist aber, dass die USA nicht Nordkorea sind und es dort Kammern und Abgeordnete gibt – Trump kann deshalb nicht eigenständig und im Alleingang regieren. Die Normativität des Faktischen spielt bei Donald Trump aber eine große Rolle. Der neue Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten besitzt für die Finanzmärkte eine derart hohe Strahlkraft, dass er das schaffte, was Ben Bernanke, Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, Angela Merkel und Barack Obama nicht erreicht haben: ... mehr

Selbst solide Quartalszahlen von Citigroup (WKN: A1H92V) und Goldman Sachs (WKN: 920332) brachten nicht mehr Risikobereitschaft zu Tage. Der Dow Jones und der Nasdaq Composite verzeichneten nur marginale Abschläge von 0,4 Prozent, der S+P 500 notierte fast auf dem Vorwochenniveau. Wurden die Anteilsscheine des Uranproduzenten Cameco (WKN: 882017) durch rege Umsatztätigkeit bis zum Montag von 10,05 Euro auf 12,93 Euro getrieben, so mussten die Anleger an diesem Mittwoch einen herben Schlag einstecken. ... mehr

Analyse: Edelmetalle setzen Erholungsrally fort!
RoboForex I B. Wachsmann - Commodities - 20.01.2017
Gold und Silber befinden sich nach ihren Tiefs aus Dezember 2016 nach wie vor in einer intakten Erholungsrally. Zuletzt hatte diese Rally Gold an die 100er-EMA bzw. auf ein Achtwochenhoch geführt. Eine wichtige Rolle für die Erholung spielte hier zuletzt der schwächer notierende US-Dollar, welcher nach der Trump-Rally etwas geschwächelt hatte. Aussagen Trumps, dass der starke US-Dollar Gift für die amerikanische Wirtschaft seien, wirkten sich ebenfalls positiv auf die Edelmetallpreise aus. Dem setzte die FED-Vorsitzende Janet Yellen gestern allerdings entgegen, dass die US-Wirtschaft bereit für steigende Zinsen sei. ... mehr
