U.S. Oil Projects Begin to Falter as Producers Curb Spending<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

Last year, booming West Texas production overwhelmed existing pipelines out of the region, sinking local prices and helping launch nine projects proposing to add 5.4 million barrels per day (bpd) through the first half of 2021.

Infected U.S. Shale Oil is Being Turned Away by Asian Buyers<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">March 26 - The complex web of U.S. pipelines, tanks and export terminals that’s helped make America the world’s top oil producer is causing a headache for some crude buyers. As various types of crude pass through the supply chain from inland shale fields spanning Texas to North Dakota, they risk picking up impurities before reaching Asia -- the world’s biggest oil-consuming region. Specifically, refiners are worried about the presence of problematic metals as well as a class of chemical compounds known as oxygenates, which can affect the quality and type of fuel they produce.

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">WASHINGTON, March 27 - The U.S. trade deficit narrowed by the most in 10 months in January as automotive exports rose and China likely boosted purchases of soybeans, driving the first increase in exports in four months and offering a respite to a flood of dour data on the economy. The politically sensitive goods trade gap with China - a focus of President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda - narrowed by the most in nearly three years as imports from the world’s No. 2 economy plunged, Commerce Department data released on Wednesday showed. It totaled $34.5 billion in January, the narrowest since June. Reuters

Turkey’s Yildirim Sets Financing in Bid for Long Beach Shipping Terminal<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

Company Chairman Yuksel Yildirim told The Wall Street Journal in an interview that he has already met with regulators in Washington who are reviewing a deal that would bring a multiyear concession for the Long Beach Container Terminal in Southern California. Mr. Yildirim said the company has the cash and access to financing to complete an agreement likely to be worth between $1.6 billion and $2 billion, and won’t need to unload assets that include a minority stake in French container shipping giant CMA CGM SA to raise proceeds.

Baltic Exchange Keeps Shipping Indices Unchanged Ahead of IMO Changes<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">LONDON, March 27 - The Baltic Exchange has opted to keep its benchmark shipping indices unchanged, despite calls from some market players for the data provider to include fuel cleaning systems that vessels can fit due to a major regulatory change next year. From January 2020, UN shipping agency the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will ban ships from using fuels with a sulphur content above 0.5 percent, compared with 3.5 percent now, in one of the biggest changes in the oil and shipping markets in decades. The London-based Baltic Exchange, whose indexes for global shipping rates are also used by the multi-billion-dollar freight derivatives market, said on Wednesday that after extensive consultation with members and market participants its indices would show “non-scrubber fitted” vessels in its descriptions.

Tanker Hijacked by Rescued Migrants Arrives Safely in Malta<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">VALLETTA, March 28 — A Maltese special operations team on Thursday boarded a tanker that had been hijacked by migrants rescued at sea, and returned control to the captain before escorting it to a Maltese port. Armed military personnel stood guard on the ship’s deck, and a dozen or so migrants were also visible, as the Turkish oil tanker El Hiblu 1 docked at Boiler Wharf in the city of Senglea. Several police vans were lined up on shore to take custody of the migrants for investigation, and four migrants were led off the ship in handcuffs. Authorities in Italy and Malta on Wednesday said that the group had hijacked the vessel after it rescued them in the Mediterranean Sea, and forced the crew to put the Libya-bound vessel on a course north toward Europe.

Saudi Aramco to Buy SABIC in $69 Billion Chemicals Megadeal<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

The agreement to help boost Aramco’s downstream growth plans comes after months of talks between Aramco and the Public Investment Fund (PIF), which contributed to the delay of Aramco’s planned multi-billion dollar initial public offering.

Offshore Drilling Makes a Comeback After Years in Shale's Shadow<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">Offshore is ready for the limelight again. After years in the shadow of the U.S. shale patch, deep-water explorers from Royal Dutch Shell Plc to Talos Energy Inc., along with contractors such as Ensco Plc and TechnipFMC Plc, told investors at the Scotia Howard Weil Energy Conference in New Orleans this week they see a revival coming. That was a stark contrast to a subdued outlook for shale at the event. “The offshore recovery is under way today,” Jon Baksht, chief financial officer at Ensco, told investors Tuesday at the conference. “This isn’t something that we’re waiting for.” Bloomberg

Luxury Cruise Ship Lost Engines Due Low Level of Lubricating Oil<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">OSLO, March 27 - The engines of a luxury cruise ship that narrowly escaped disaster during a storm off Norway on Saturday failed because of relatively low levels of lubricating oil in the engines, the Norwegian Maritime Authority said on Wednesday. “Our conclusion is that the engine failure was directly caused by low oil pressure,” the Norwegian Maritime Authority said in a statement. “The level of lubricating oil in the tanks was within set limits, however relatively low, when the vessel started to cross Hustadvika,” it added, referring to the stretch of water where the incident happened.

Container Shipping: Restoring Balance<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif;color:black">The repositioning of empty containers costs the liner industry an estimated $15-20billion every year according to Boston Consulting Group (BCG), as containers sit idle at a depot or are repositioned to a different loading point while empty. This is time spent not earning revenue, while incurring additional costs, and is estimated by BCG to account for 5-8% of total operating costs for an average container liner. These expenses can include inland repositioning by rail or road onto a different port or terminal, the costs of shipping to another location, transhipment costs at terminals, and depot storage costs as well as all the associated administrative, handling, labour and third-party costs incurred throughout. This is a significant burden for carriers working hard to maintain already slim margins. MarineLink

Most of the new online freight companies do not (yet) openly provide data for the freight volume which pass through their platforms, but Hapag Lloyd presented such data in their annual report. This means we can use their data to assess the potential size and scope of the market for online sales of container freight. Hapag Lloyd is currently at a level where 6% of their sales go through the Quick Quotes webchannel – a growth which has taken place within just a single year. The target for Hapag Lloyd is to reach 15% of the total volume to be sold online in 2023. LinkedIn
