The No.1 Trade-Off For U.S. Shale Companies
by Tsvetana Paraskova
25 Jun 2019 at 3:00pm
Volatile but range-bound oil prices are limiting the ability of U.S. oil firms to pay down the debts they had accumulated in order to boost drilling activities and production. On the one hand, WTI Crude prices in the $50-65 per barrel range are limiting the options for the U.S. shale patch to grow cash flows and profitability. On the other hand, shareholders are increasingly pressing oil producers to start rewarding them with higher returns in the form of share repurchases and/or higher dividends, which eat into what little cash flow companies?

Now, according to Citi analysts, the trade war could inflict lasting damage to the nascent U.S. LNG industry. S&P Global Platts quotes in a recent story a note by Citi saying "China has not only paused (or shelved), pending LNG deals with the US, but it also appears to be reassessing its long-term investments in the US.

Nuclear Energy Just Isn?t Competitive In The U.S.
by Haley Zaremba
25 Jun 2019 at 1:00pm
Nuclear is struggling in the United States. While the U.S. retains its position as the largest nuclear energy producer in the world, representing a whopping 30 percent of all nuclear power produced globally, those numbers are in decline. More nuclear plants are going offline than are being constructed, and those that are still up and running are relying more heavily on state government subsidies than ever before. Adding to the issue, while nuclear becomes a less and less profitable industry in the United States, cleaning up and storing nuclear?

by Vanand Meliksetian
25 Jun 2019 at 10:00am
China's unprecedented economic development since Deng Xiaoping's "Open Door Policy", has transformed the Asian country into the second largest economy of the world. The booming economy has had the undesired side-effect of increasing Beijing's dependence on foreign oil imports. Twenty-five years ago, China produced approximately 4 million barrels per day (mb/d), which was enough to satisfy the Asian country's domestic demand for petroleum products. In April, on average, 10.64 mb/d were imported, which is a new record. In 2018, the ratio of?
