Crude Oil Continues Falling at 6 year lows in Jan2015

Houston, Texas: US Crude oil prices fell on Thursday after weak US economic data spurred worries over crude oil demand. The US crude declined $2.23, or 4.6 percent, to settle at $46.25 a barrel. Brent crude was last down $1 to trade around $48 a barrel. Early in today’s trading session, US crude moved higher, breaking above $50 a barrel on a fall in the dollar. And very interestingly, the US crude also briefly traded at a premium to Brent, rather than the discount it normally sustains, as the Brent front-month contract traded in its last day before expiry.  Read More >>

Renting vs Buying Equipment

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSWAkARnpYGO_ihBrVnCyBUD5GwjWxZ936e_363WW_OuoZZYqQkegThere are always going to be times when, no matter how carefully an excavation company plans out a project, there simply isn’t enough equipment on hand to handle the requirements of the project without running out of time. The choices at this point are clear – rent the machines you need or buy them. It is however, not easy to make these types of decisions, thanks to several factors that you will need to consider, and uncertainty about the business conditions you will face in the future.

Equipment Rental Pricing: Its no secret that rental companies make a killing with the equipment they rent out. Most companies will rent on a daily or weekly basis, which is good for them but can be bad for you. Depending on what area you work in, the price can be very high or just right. Continue reading

BP to raise $1.1bn from North Sea field sale

London, Dec 6, 2012: BP sells its stakes in its North Sea oil and gas fields for $1.06bn (£663m) to an Abu Dhabi’s energy group. Prime Minister David Cameron said agreement positioned the North Sea as a global energy hub and the takings from the deal will help cover huge amounts from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Abu Dhabi National Energy (Taqa) will get hold of stakes in the BP-operated Harding, Maclure and Devenick fields.

Nuclear power plant explosion following earthquake tsunami in Japan

Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant had an explosion today after the nuclear core could not cool down due to lack of cooling system, which went down due to the earthquake damage. Though the plant crew tried to bring the reactor’s temperature down during the last 24 hours, the manual effort was not enough compared to the coolant requirements for the nuclear reactor. And the explosion of the reactor building is an indication that manual cooling was not successful, and now radiation leakage is on. Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi plant plan to flood the reactor containment structure with sea water to bring the reactor’s temperature down to safe levels, which may take two days. Radiation levels are said to have fallen since the explosion but authorities have expanded the evacuation to include a radius of 20 km. Continue reading

Commodities Are The Best Investment Today: Jim Rogers

23 Nov, 2010: Korea tension: Commodities are the thing to invest in, says Jim Rogers

In an interview with ET Now, Jim Rogers, Chairman, Rogers Holding, talks about the correction in global markets besides giving his views on commodities and India. Excerpts:

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/thumb.cms?msid=6976432&width=300&resizemode=4Q1: Global markets are correcting and everyone is saying it is because of Korea. Would you endorse that thought?

First of all, global markets should be correcting about this time because they have been pretty strong recently and there is always some reason to correct. This time, it looks like it might be Korea. Whenever you have threat of war, usually everything goes down at first, then you have to figure out what to invest in after the initial collapse. In my view, the thing to invest in is commodities because if there is going to be war, it is always good for commodities and if there is no war, then commodities will rally like everything else.
