An oil well pump jack is seen at an oil field supply yard near Denver, Colorado, U.S., February 2, 2015. And then, well, we'll all really be stung. But despite dinner invitations and behind-closed-doors conversations, shale continues to increase output and grab market share. And yet global oil demand is expected to surpass 100 million barrels per day next year. Unlike OPEC countries, shale firms do not have political goals, and their main objective is profit.
"Opec is struggling to understand shale", said Daniel Yergin, the oil historian and vice chairman of consultant IHS Markit Ltd. Exiting the current agreement, which cuts output by 1.8 Mbd, could create a sharp price drop. The thing is, that shale oil production is relatively costly, which makes it unprofitable at low oil prices. It was a first-of-its-kind event and both sides exchanged pleasantries.
USA oil majors, however, cannot engage in supply restrictions to affect the price as the OPEC cartel does, and some ministers on Monday played down the idea that the growth of shale could not be handled.
Natural gas liquids will add another 1 million barrels per day to reach 4.7 million barrels per day by 2023. The agency may also raise its forecast for us output if oil stays above $60/bbl, Birol said during the CERAWeek oil conference in Houston.
This strategy worked to some extent as many shale companies went broke, but the fiscal pain became too great for Saudi Arabia, and they worked with other OPEC members and Russian Federation to take supplies off the market to support prices.
The biggest winners of this would be Russian Federation, now the world's largest producer, and Opec.
Meanwhile, the increasing penetration of electric buses and LNG-fueled trucks may have a bigger impact on curbing consumption of transport fuels than the electrification of passenger vehicles, IEA said.
The bottom line is that Russian Federation and the OPEC actually helped the American shale oil industry to rise again, thereby creating a serious rival. It is clearly anxious about its market sway, and formalizing its partnership with non-OPEC allies would give it broader influence. If anyone can pressure companies to cut back output, it would be shareholders, many of whom are frustrated with a strategy focused on growth. Investors, exhausted of losses, are demanding shale companies focus on returns, rather than just growth. (The slump in oil prices since 2014 killed much of that investment.) That won't happen if it costs too much to invest in new infrastructure.
The IEA's outlook looks ahead five years and identified the United States, Brazil, Canada and Norway as the four countries that will be able to meet the demand for oil. Growth is led by the Permian Basin, where output is expected to double by 2023. With oil prices up about 15 percent since oil ministers and top executives convened here a year ago, fears have receded for a slugfest of OPEC vs. USA shale. Anecdotal evidence suggests privately owned operators, which don't disclose their targets, plan 20-percent to 30-percent increases this year.
