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, August 19, 2015 - According to the Paris-based, International Energy Agency’s "Oil Market Report", crude oil prices fell sharply during July and into early August, pressured by an abundance of supply and a strong US dollar.

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 - As previously reported by EIA, Midwest retail gasoline prices rose significantly as a result of the unplanned outage at BP’s refinery in Whiting, Indiana. Following the outage, the supply chain is now in the process of adjusting and the availability of replacement supply is apparent.

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 - The Colorado State University Dept. of Atmospheric Science expects that the next two weeks will be characterized by below-average amounts (less than 70 percent) of activity relative to climatology. This forecast is a tough call, however, as Tropical Depression 4 may generate significant levels of ACE.

Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - North Sea Brent crude oil prices averaged $57/barrel(b) in July, a $5/b decrease from June. Brent crude oil spot prices fell further in early August, settling at $48/b on August 7. The recent price declines reflect concerns about lower economic growth in emerging markets, expectations of higher oil exports from Iran, and continuing actual and expected growth in global inventories.

Friday, August 07, 2015 - The average U.S. offshore rig count for July 2015 was 31, up 3 from the 28 that were counted in June 2015 and down 26 from the 57 that were counted in July 2014. 

Wednesday, July 08, 2015 - Turkey is well placed to serve as a hub for oil and natural gas supply headed to Europe and other Atlantic markets from Russia, the Caspian region, and the Middle East. Turkey has been a major transit point for oil and is becoming more important as a transit point for natural gas.
