Personality and Regional Politics Drive Digital Decision-Making in the Oil Sector

More than many other industries, the characteristics of regional oil markets depend substantially on the personalities of the oil majors present in them. Because of decades of government financial support, and often government ownership, regional oil markets behave very differently. These different identities shape how they react to change.The Covid-19 pandemic is one example of the differing strategies of regional oil players when under pressure. Another example has been the emergence of cheap U.S. shale oil and gas. Whenever price shocks occur due to demand changes or large new suppliers ent

Shale Drillers Are Staring Down Barrel at Worst Oil Bust Yet

(Bloomberg) -- America’s shale drillers have never faced an oil bust quite like this.The split between Russia and its one-time OPEC allies last week has ignited an all-out price war. U.S. crude prices plunged the most since the 1990s, falling to less than $28 a barrel and rendering vast swathes of the U.S. oil industry unprofitable. Shares and bonds of shale producers plunged Monday, with the S&P 500 Energy Index posting its worst intraday decline on record.It’s a disaster for U.S. frackers including Chesapeake Energy Corp. and Whiting Petroleum Corp., who were already trading at distressed le
