Summary:
A day after Exxon posted a drop in quarterly production, Chevron is doing likewise. The oil producer, second-largest in the U.S., earned profits 27% less than a year earlier as the company suffered lower crude oil production and declining prices over the quarter. The company attributed the drop to "global economic factors" and also said weather-related issues in two of its oil fields in Kazakhstan led to unplanned downtime. Over the quarter, Chevron's production fell 2% to 2.59 million boed. Video provided by TheStreet

Crude Oil Prices Bounce Back After Falling Below $100 a Barrel

Crude Oil Prices Bounce Back After Falling Below $100 a Barrel

TheStreet (July 16, 2014) — Oil Futures are bouncing back after tumbling below $100 a barrel for the first time since May yesterday. Jeff Grossman is the president of BRG Brokerage and trades at the NYMEX. Grossman tells TheStreet the Middle East is always a concern for oil traders. Oil prices were pushed down in recent weeks on Libya increasing its production. Supply disruptions in Iraq fading also contributed to prices falling. News from China's economic front showing a growth for the second quarter also calmed fears on its slowdown. Jeff Grossman talks to TheStreet's Susannah Lee on this and more on the Energy Department's Energy Information Administration (EIA) report. Video provided by TheStreet

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

TheStreet (July 2, 2014) — Dan Dicker, energy contributor at RealMoney, talks to Jim Cramer about the Commerce Department's recent decision to allow the reclassification of condensates as a refined product, in effect ending a 40-year old ban on the export of domestically produced crude oil. This will expand the business of distilling crude oil for export overseas, benefiting U.S. exploration and production companies and some transport MLPs. The losers will be the U.S. refiners, who will see the end of the price advantage they have enjoyed for the last 4 years. Dicker says he would not own any of them right now.

Domestic Energy Production Calls for PE Backing

Domestic Energy Production Calls for PE Backing

TheStreet (June 6, 2014) — In 2014, deals in the oil and gas space hit highs not seen in a decade, according to a PwC study. That comes at the same time as a number of private equity firms take a black eye on a bad deal in Energy Futures Holdings. Last year, PE activity in the sector was muted, coming as strategics have ramped up production efforts, as well as the need for capital. While some like Marathon Oil, which unloaded $2.7 billion worth of foreign assets to shore up domestic production, turn to M&A, others will have private equity firms to look toward. Last year, despite the slowdown in deals, PE firms raised several large funds for energy M&A. Video provided by TheStreet

Oil Inventories Reach Highest Level Since November

Oil Inventories Reach Highest Level Since November

TheStreet (Mar. 26, 2014) — The Energy Information Agency reports crude oil inventories build by 6.6 million barrels in the latest week. BRG Brokerage President Jeff Grossman tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that this is a much larger-than-expected build, but he is surprised the WTI crude market remains little changed amid the inventory build and the Crimea crisis. Grossman warns that prices, which remain near $100 a barrel, likely will see a pullback to the mid $90 range, but not much further below that level. Video provided by TheStreet
