Oil prices plummet as Russia defies Opec plans for deeper cuts

first_imgCoronavirus has hit global oil demand hardThe impact of coronavirus on global oil markets has been huge since it took hold in China in January, as quarantine measures and subdued economic activity have conspired to significantly weaken demand for the commodity.On Thursday, Opec confirmed it had dramatically revised down its full-year demand forecasts due to the “unprecedented situation” brought on by the health crisis.It said in a statement: “The Covid-19 outbreak has had a major adverse impact on global economic and oil demand forecasts in 2020, particularly for the first and second quarters.“Global oil demand growth in 2020 is now forecast to be 480,000 bpd, down from 1.1 bpd in December 2019.“Moreover, the unprecedented situation, and the ever-shifting market dynamics, means risks are skewed to the downside.” Opec members are awaiting Russia’s decision on whether it will agree to new supply cuts (Credit: Opec) Crude oil prices nosedived on news today (6 March) that Russia had rebuffed a recommendation from Opec to introduce fresh production cuts in response to the impact of coronavirus on international markets.Already weakened by waning global demand as the health crisis continues to subdue economic and industrial activity, Brent crude dropped almost 10% in the day’s trading to around $45 per barrel – its lowest level since 2017.Opec had hoped to secure agreement from Russia for an extension to existing measures, due to expire at the end of this month, to curb global oil supply in an attempt to bolster markets – as well as for a major deepening of the cuts that would see oil producers withhold 3.6 million barrels per day (bpd) overall until the end of the year.Russia’s refusal to cooperate raises doubts over the future of the informal Opec+ alliance, which has been coordinating to control global oil output – and market prices – since 2016, potentially paving the way to a price war that could drive down prices further still. Russia unwilling to support Opec recommendation for deeper cutsIn Vienna on Thursday (5 March), Opec members had suggested a major round of oil output cuts totalling 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd) – adding to existing measures to withhold 2.1 million bpd introduced at the start of the year in response to a global oversupply and cheap natural gas prices.The new reductions – intended to be shared between Opec members, nominally led by Saudi Arabia, and non-Opec countries that have been cooperating with the measures – were initially suggested to run until the end of June, but post-meeting negotiations led to a revised timetable for the end of the year.A second meeting was held today to discuss these plans with members of the Opec+ alliance – which is informally led by Russia – and to secure their agreement to the new policy.Rumours emerged throughout the day that Russia was unwilling to commit to further production cuts, and after a series of delays brought on by last-gasp negotiations it was confirmed Russia had not agreed to the recommendation.The collapse of the talks now raises the “spectre of unrestrained production”, according to Wood Mackenzie analyst Ann-Louise Hittle, who described the outcome as a “psychological blow for the market”.She added: “The only silver lining in a very dark cloud is for refining – the sector will be hit hard by weak demand, but it is at least saved from tightening crude differentials associated with a major cut in OPEC supplies.”center_img Opec had recommended fresh production cuts of 1.5 million bpd until the end of the year in a bid to stabilise markets amid coronavirus pressure, but failed to secure Moscow’s backinglast_img read more

Jack White Is Planning To Play The First Vinyl Record In Outer Space [Report]

first_imgThere’s no denying that Jack White has an obsession with vinyl. His company Third Man Records is essentially built off of that obsession, as White continues to support talented musicians and preserve musical legacies through the creation of vinyl. His Third Man Records booth made history when it became the quickest performing-to-vinyl pressing ever, but it seems White is not content with keeping his vinyl on the ground.In a new video posted to Jack White’s Facebook page, the musician writes “July 30th, Third Man Records is going to make vinyl history again” in gold letters, set over a background of stars in outer space. From there, a gold vinyl twirls its way into the foreground, revealing its title: Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn,” an album released on Third Man Records in 2009.Carl Sagan was a noted astronomer, perhaps best known for his series Cosmos that was popular in the 1980’s, and recently revitalized with Neil deGrasse Tyson as host. Some of his spoken excerpts were selected and released on the “A Glorious Dawn” album posthumously.When you couple that with some older interviews, it seems highly likely that White is going to boldly go where no man has gone before, and try to play a vinyl record in space for the first time ever. In a 2012 conversation with astronaut Buzz Aldrin in Interview Magazine, White talks about a “secret project” to accomplish this first-ever feat. White says, “We want to launch a balloon that carries a vinyl record player, and possibly that Carl Sagan record, and figure out a way to drop the needle with all that turbulence up there and ensure that it will still play.”Has White figured it out? I guess we’ll find out on July 30th. Watch the video below.last_img read more

300 people run Fr. Ted’s 5K

first_imgMore than 300 students, faculty and South Bend citizens laced up their tennis shoes and stretched their legs yesterday morning in preparation for the seventh annual Fr. Ted’s 10K. Melissa Lindley, the race director, said the TRiO Upward Bound Program put on the race. TRiO is a scholarship program at Notre Dame for low-income and first-generation college-bound youth. According to the TRiO website, participants could run a 5K or 10K, decide to do the family fun walk or “fitness” walk. All donations from the race supported TRiO’s students, Lindley said. “Fr. Ted’s 10K is more than just a run … it is an investment in our community,” Lindley said.  “I think it’s unique as well because our students are involved in the event, so the runners can see who they are there supporting. Most of us call Notre Dame and South Bend home, and this race funds scholarships for South Bend youth to go to college. These kids are the future of our community.”Sophomore Olivia Fernandes said she ran the race for the second time this year because she loves the cause. “The proceeds go to TRiO Upward Bound in South Bend … I volunteer at a local elementary school here in South Bend, and equality of education is important to me, so the cause really resonates,” Fernandes said. Lindley said University President Emeritus Fr. Theodore Hesburgh brought TRiO programs to Notre Dame in the 1960s as a part of his fight against poverty. She said he used to come speak at the event, but as years have passed he now tapes a video for the participants. She said the race was, however, still well attended and enjoyed.  Fernandes said despite bad weather, the race turned out well. “The trail consists of two three-mile laps around campus. The best part of the race is by far the supporters all along the way,” Fernandes said. “It was quite windy, but the high school students’ enthusiasm rocked. Their inspirational signs got me going, and the bagpipes player was legit. Hard not to smile at all the support.” “We were very satisfied with this year’s event … with 300 pre-registered participants and some great personal and corporate sponsorships, we will be able to fund our student scholarships, and that is the number one priority,” Lindley said. “A big thank you to Notre Dame students who consistently come out and support Fr. Ted’s 10K.”Tags: 5K, Hesburgh, runlast_img read more

Final testing under way at expanded Hornsdale big battery in Australia

first_imgFinal testing under way at expanded Hornsdale big battery in Australia FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:The Tesla big battery at Hornsdale in South Australia is entering the final testing of its expanded capacity, and is achieving some significant new records and milestones that would be expected when the world’s biggest lithium ion battery gets even bigger.The Hornsdale battery set a world record for a lithium-ion battery installation when it was installed in late 2017 with capacity of 100MW/129MWh. It has played an important control in providing frequency control and emergency back-up – both critical in helping keep the lights on during major network problems – as well as doing the normal storage thing of energy arbitrage, buying at the lows and selling at the peaks.It is now being expanded to a capacity of 150MW/194MWh, and is adding new services, particularly synthetic inertia, that will allow it to replicate more of the services once exclusive to fossil fuel generators in South Australia, and allow the grid to take another important step towards the shift to the state government target of “net 100 per cent renewables.”The expanded Hornsdale Power Reserve (its official name) is owned by the French renewable energy developer Neoen and located next to the 315MW Hornsdale wind facilities, and got the OK to connect last month. It is now going through testing that allows it to progress through various “hold points” that it can straddle once the market operator is satisfied with the outcome.On Tuesday, in the latest series of tests, the Hornsdale battery did a rapid 270MW flip – from charging at 120MW to discharging at 150MW. It appears to have flipped between the two on several different occasions – at least one of which had an immediate impact on the wholesale price of electricity, pushing it down to the peppercorn price of just above $8/MWh.Those 270MW flips – from the level of discharge to the level of charge – are likely a world record in both speed and extent of the change. And it’s this flexibility of the big batteries such as Hornsdale, and others at Dalrymple North, Lake Bonney, Gannawarra and Ballarat, that is particularly attractive to project owners and valuable to AEMO, the market operator.[Giles Parkinson]More: Tesla big battery sets new record as testing for Hornsdale expansion enters final stagelast_img read more

Queensland cricketer Peter Forrest is on the move

Picture: Phil HillyardQUEENSLAND cricketer Peter Forrest and his wife Rachel have listed their Cannon Hill home for sale.The couple, who have a 10 month old son, bought the house at 52 Aster St, in 2012. Back then it was a three-bedroom house. They have since renovated it and transformed it into a much more substantial five-bedroom home.Mr Forrest said they were actually renting in Sydney when they first bought the house which turned out to be perfect for them.As they had been living in Western Sydney they wanted something much closer to the city when they relocated to Brisbane and found that at Cannon Hill.“We looked around and found Cannon Hill and this house, It was only a three-bedroom settler’s cottage when we first bought it,’’ Mr Forrest said.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours ago52 Aster St, Cannon Hill.Buying the house coincided with Mr Forrest being picked for the Australian cricket team so the couple decided to push ahead quickly with their renovation plans.While they loved the results Mr Forrest said it was time for something different and they thought now was a good time to sell.“We think that it is a good time to sell with Cannon Hill going off a little bit,’’ he said.The split-level home is on 405sq m of land.
