Study finds global oil demand likely to grow despite pandemic, climate policies

Green Car Congress

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected both consumer and commercial transportation, but global oil demand will probably continue to grow through 2030, according to a new study. In three of the four scenarios, global oil demand continued to grow through 2030.

Study finds carbon emissions benefits of reduction in oil demand depend on size of drop and global oil market structure

Green Car Congress

New research led by Mohammad Masnadi, assistant professor of chemical and petroleum engineering at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering, offers a closer look at the relationship between decreasing demand for oil and a resilient, varied oil market—and the carbon footprint associated with both. There’s an assumption that as demand decreases, oil producers who are on the margins will be pushed out of business, but we’ve found that’s not always the case.

3 Oil Majors That Bet Big On Renewables

Opinion: Political Climate Shifting Against The Oil And Gas Industry

Green Car Congress

Oil and gas companies have had a tough time over the past year trying to weather the storm of falling oil prices. Drilling oil and gas wells requires a lot of money. For companies that have seen their revenues vanish because of collapsing oil prices, access to credit is obviously critically important. Put another way, about 12 percent of all loans to oil and gas companies are rated “substandard” or worse. Market Background Oil Opinion

IHS Markit: oil sands greenhouse gas intensity declined 20% over past decade

Green Car Congress

New research by the IHS Markit Canadian Oil Sands Dialogue shows that the combined greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity of Canadian oil sands projects has declined 20% from 2009 levels. The new analysis, using most recent data available, shows trends remaining in line with previous IHS Markit projections that oil sands GHG intensity will decline by at least 16 to 23% by 2030 (to a level 30% below 2009). This is important and it goes beyond just the oil sands.

In the event of an oil spill, our results suggest that the response of these organisms is severely hindered by the low temperatures and nutrient levels that are typical for the FSC.

In a paper published in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology , they report that lignite is the most GHG intensive primary fuel followed by oil shale. By comparison, oil shale has NERs (or EROI) of 1.6−2.0

The $32-Trillion Push To Disrupt The Entire Oil Industry

Green Car Congress

Global oil and gas companies are increasingly facing an uphill battle as global warming policies are taking their toll. Most analysts and market watchers are focusing on peak oil demand scenarios, but the reality could be much darker. International oil companies (IOCs) are likely to face a Black Swan scenario, which could end up being a boon for state-owned oil companies (NOCs). Lower oil supply will push up prices if demand continues to grow.

Study suggests microbe produces methane from crude oil all by itself
