Here’s What’s on My Radar This Week

by | published February 18th, 2020

I’m working on four avenues of research at the moment, any or all of which could have an impact on energy investing heading into the second quarter and beyond.

1. The White House has proposed a record $4.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2021. There are cuts to energy on the table – I’m assessing the potential impact of those cuts.

2. Iraq, an important, if fragile, American ally in the strife-torn Middle East must import energy from neighboring Iran. Iraq has a “get-out-of-sanctions-free” waiver from the U.S. government to allow these imports. Now the U.S. could rescind that waiver, which could precipitate an energy crisis inside Iraq. I’m analyzing the impact.

There are two more things…

3. General Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army is blockading oil exports from the rival Libyan Government of National Accord. I’m currently calculating the effect of this blockade.

4. Natural gas prices are near a 20-year low; I’m examining the reasons why.
