    The BHP assets burn or vent just over 15% of the gas they produce, the second most in the Permian, according to Rystad Energy, an Oslo-based consultant. For BP to attain its self-stated goal of reducing flaring globally, the company may be forced to put some drilling on hold while it waits for more pipelines to be built, according to Artem Abramov, head of shale research at Rystad.

The radical move recommended by the government’s climate-change adviser has won backing from across the political spectrum even as debate about leaving the European Union roiled U.K. lawmakers. Urgency is building around efforts to contain an increase in global temperatures.

    Erratic weather boosts energy demand, denting climate goals: BP

    Extreme temperatures around the globe drove a sharp acceleration in energy demand and carbon emissions last year, oil giant BP said on Tuesday, issuing a stark warning that the world risks losing the battle against climate change. The 2.9% rise in energy demand in 2018, the fastest rate since 2010, deals a blow to global efforts to meet the 2015 U.N.-backed Paris climate agreement to limit global warming by sharply reducing carbon emissions by the end of the century.

    BP raises Saudi oil reserves 12% in first big change in 30 years

    BP has raised estimates for Saudi Arabia's crude oil reserves by 12%, marking the first major change to the country's estimated reserves since 1989. In its benchmark 2019 Statistical Review of World Energy, BP recalibrated some Saudi gas reserves as oil, allowing Riyadh to close in on Venezuela's top spot as the world's largest reserves holder. BP said Saudi Arabia's proved oil reserves were revised to 297.7 billion barrels at the end of 2018 from 266.2 billion a year earlier, only slightly behind 303 billion in Venezuela.

    Electric Scooter Revs Up in Five Minutes With StoreDot Battery

    “This is showing the world that we can break the barrier of fast charging, and what was considered impossible is actually possible,” said StoreDot Chief Executive Officer Doron Myersdorf, whose company will begin selling five-minute chargers for mobile phones in the second half of 2020. The Herzliya, Israel-based company plans to put its scooter batteries on the market in 2021, when it has scheduled its next proof of concept -- revving up a Mercedes for a 300-mile drive in five minutes flat, instead of the several hours it takes to charge the car now. The automobile battery will need 10 times as many power cells as the scooter battery, and an even more efficient way of cooling while in use, Myersdorf said.

    Canadian oil pipeline congestion sets up lucrative storage play

    CALGARY, Alberta/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Upheavals in the Canadian crude market are providing unique opportunities for firms with sizeable long-term leases on Alberta storage tanks, a cluster that sources say includes Mercuria Energy Group and oil major BP Plc's trading arm. Canada holds the world's third-largest crude reserves, but years of delay in building new pipelines has led to oil production outpacing takeaway capacity. A glut of crude has thus been created, increasing demand for storage tanks in the oil sands province of Alberta, which this year introduced production cuts to deal with the oversupply.
