It’s all about the price of oil. In our last September 2014 tank barge market report we were just beginning to see the drop begin in earnest. At that time oil prices were running about US $80/BBL for West Texas Intermediate Crude. Since then some pain and suffering has really taken hold on the market. At the end of February (after a brief rally) WTI crude prices were hovering around US $50/BBL.

Wednesday, July 01, 2015 - Petroleum product exports averaged 4.1 million barrels per day (b/d) in the first four months of the year, the latest monthly data available. This was an increase of 0.5 million b/d over the same time last year.

Thursday, June 18, 2015 - In April, prices slightly rebounded in Rotterdam and Singapore, but these gains were closely countered by declines in Fujairah and Houston. In May, we saw increases in all areas.

Tuesday, June 09, 2015 - North Sea Brent crude oil prices averaged $64/barrel (b) in May, a $5/b increase from April and the highest monthly average of 2015. Despite estimated global inventories increasing by more than 2 million barrels per day (b/d) for the third consecutive month, several factors contributed to higher prices in May.

Monday, June 08, 2015 - The average U.S. offshore rig count for May 2015 was 32, down 1 from the 33 that were counted in April 2015 and down 26 from the 58 that were counted in May 2014. 

Wednesday, June 03, 2015 - We continue to foresee a well below-average 2015 Atlantic hurricane season. A strong El Niño event now appears likely. Conditions in the tropical Atlantic remain unfavorable for hurricane formation. We continue to call for a below-average probability of United States and Caribbean major hurricane landfall.

Tuesday, June 02, 2015 - Egypt is the largest non-OPEC oil producer in Africa and the second-largest dry natural gas producer on the continent. The country also serves as a major transit route for oil shipped from the Persian Gulf to Europe and to the United States.
