The Situation Room: Russia and the U.S. Battle it out for Europe

The Situation Room: Russia and the U.S. Battle it out for Europe

by | published April 15th, 2019

Welcome back from the weekend, Oil & Energy Investor readers. Along with the two new Σ Algorithm picks that I shared with my Energy Inner Circle and Micro Energy Trader readers last week, there have been some major developments in the energy world.

Much of this has been geopolitical in nature, as well as some interesting developments in industries like LNG and the global import and export market.

So, let’s get started.

1. The Russian Factor

First and foremost, this week I will be examining whether Moscow is serious about increasing oil extractions. This would thereby decrease its contribution to the OPEC/non-OPEC agreement to cut production.

However, with declines greater than had been estimated from Venezuela and Libya, there is more room to add available volume from other countries without automatically decreasing the global oil price.

2. Where LNG Is Going Next

Next, I will be analyzing indications of rising U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to Europe. This comes as the EU moves on balancing continued reliance on pipelined gas imports from Russia.

Now, the U.S. LNG market is booming, and increased exports to Europe could raise the bar even further. However, with the U.S. in competition with Russia for the European market, things could get heated.

There Are Bigger Things in Store for LNG This Year…

The market in Europe is only one cog in the vast LNG wheel.

At the beginning of this year, U.S. LNG was expected to take center stage this year to become the third largest LNG exporter in the world behind Australia and Qatar.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has also predicted that U.S. LNG exports will double this year, to nearly 9 billion cubic feet per day by the end of 2019.

And when we see predictions like that, we know that U.S. LNG companies can benefit.

Like this one, which is currently trading at just over $10 per share.

But if the LNG market continues like it has, there’s no telling how high this company can fly.

And I’m predicting that fly it will.

You’re going to want to lock in this ground floor opportunity, which is where we are right now.
