Pressurising the U.S. shale industry: crude oil’s price collapse

Blamed on OPEC’s indecision in the face of weakening global oil demand and increasing global oil supply, the price of crude oil has plummeted over the last six months. In June 2014, the price of Brent crude oil hovered above USD 110 per barrel yet by mid-January 2015 it had hit USD 48 per barrel, a 6 year low. Whilst prices have stabilised somewhat in the last few weeks, Morgan Stanley has cut its 2015 outlook for Brent crude oil to USD 70 per barrel and the CEO of Kuwait Petroleum Corp has warned that the price of oil will not rise above USD 64 per barrel until at least mid-2015. For the shale industry, crude oil’s price collapse raises deep concern. Many...

A golden future for solar energy?

Introduction: IMIA have recently released an interesting new study on Solar Energy following their conference in September. The idea of harnessing power from the sun is not new, but new technologies are starting to realise the potential on a commercial scale. In January 2007, the EU outlined a long-term strategy for a 20% share of energy consumption to be from renewable energies. The high cost of solar power technology means that it is necessary for governments to subsidise the industry to meet climate change targets. The industry’s biggest challenge, to become commercially viable, lies in future developments of solar technology. The International Energy Agency...

Offshore construction – an overview

The construction phase of any project carries with it considerable risk and expense, even more so when it is offshore. The Construction All Risks (CAR) wordings used in the offshore market have developed to take account of the particular risks associated with such projects and to ensure that all parties, including contractors and subcontractors, are adequately protected. A CAR policy may range in scope from a single pipeline installation right through to the construction of a complete offshore field. For larger operators it is not uncommon for an annual CAR policy to be issued covering all construction activities performed in that period. Although such policies are...
