    [$$] Copper Slides on Weak Chinese Economic Data, Easing Supply Fears

    Copper prices fell to a fresh 13-month low Tuesday after data showed fixed-asset investment in China slowed to a nearly two-decade low in the first seven months of the year. Front-month copper for August delivery slumped 1.7% to $2.6765 a pound on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange—its lowest close since July 13, 2017. Prices are down 19% from their June four-year highs, hurt by worries that trade tensions between the U.S. and China will accelerate a Chinese economic slowdown, weakening demand for materials used in construction and manufacturing.

    BP Shale Assets Purchase Will Transform Company

    onshore shale assets is transformational for its unconventional business in the U.S. The portfolio includes unconventional assets in the highly-prized Permian-Delaware basin in Texas, premium positions in the Eagle Ford shale, also in Texas, and in the Haynesville shale in Louisiana. The assets purchased currently produce around 190,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, of which 45% are liquid hydrocarbons, a very good balance between crude oil and natural gas. The major question here is: can BP leverage their scale and competitive advantage in other regions and basins, to make it in the basins that were pioneered by the independents?
