    CANADA FX DEBT-Loonie steadies as global risk sentiment improves

    * Canadian dollar trades nearly unchanged against the greenback * U.S. crude oil prices increase by more than 1% * Canadian bond yields rise broadly By Levent Uslu TORONTO, Aug 19 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar steadied against its U.S. counterpart on Monday, after a week of losing some ground, as risk appetite gradually returned to global markets. U.S. stocks opened higher on Monday as signs of an interest rate reform in China bolstered hopes that major economies would act to stave off the slowing economic effects of escalating global trade tensions. At 9:25 a.m. (1325 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading nearly unchanged at C$1.3260 to the greenback, or 75.41 U.S. cents.

    Traders Like This Oil ETF—That's Not Good For E&P Stocks

    The energy patch has been punished this month, particularly the volatile exploration and production stocks. The primary problem for exploration and production companies this year is that the U.S. is awash in crude and is pumping at record highs, relevant because most E&P firms operate in the U.S. The thing is, the world's appetite for oil is projected to wane over the near-term amid intensifying recession fears for major global economies.

    China CNPC suspends Venezuelan oil loading, worried about U.S. sanctions: sources

    China National Petroleum Corp, a leading buyer of Venezuelan oil, has halted August loadings following the latest set of U.S. sanctions on the South American exporter, two Beijing-based senior sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Monday. The Trump administration in early August froze all Venezuelan government assets in the United States and U.S. officials ratcheted up threats against companies that do business with Venezuela. "Trump's executive order gave a directive for the follow-up sanction measures that shall be announced by the U.S. Treasury... CNPC is worried that the company is likely to be hit by the secondary sanctions," said one source.

    Malaysian PM urges Britain to 'break with Europe' on palm oil - Bloomberg

Mahathir's comments, carried in on opinion column for news agency Bloomberg, follow a move by the EU to phase out palm oil usage in biofuels. Top growers Indonesia and Malaysia have said they would file a complaint to the World Trade Organization to challenge the move.

    Oil rises 2% after attack on Saudi field, stimulus expectations

    Oil prices gained roughly 2% on Monday after a weekend attack on a Saudi oil facility by Yemen's Houthi forces threatened crude supplies and as traders looked for signs that top economies would take measures to counteract a global slowdown. Signs of a slight softening of the trade war between the United States and China, including Washington extending a reprieve that permits China's Huawei Technologies to buy components from U.S. companies, also helped oil prices. A drone attack by the Houthi group on an oilfield in eastern Saudi Arabia on Saturday caused a fire at a gas plant, adding to Middle East tensions, but state-run Saudi Aramco said oil production was not affected.

    Coal-Loving Australia Is Third Biggest Emissions Exporter

    (Bloomberg) -- Follow Bloomberg on LINE messenger for all the business news and analysis you need.Australia’s booming coal industry has made it the world’s third-biggest exporter of potential carbon dioxide emissions locked in fossil fuels, placing it only behind oil giants Russia and Saudi Arabia.Australia makes up 7% of all global fossil fuel exports by carbon dioxide potential, as it accounts for almost one-third of the world coal trade, according to a report Monday from The Australia Institute, which has been critical of the federal government’s efforts to combat global climate change.While China and the U.S. are the world’s top greenhouse gas emitters in absolute terms, the report highlights the role relatively smaller polluters play in selling fossil fuels to other nations. Australia, which is also one of the biggest gas exporters, supplies economies throughout Asia, including Japan, China and South Korea.Exports of fossil fuels and supply infrastructure play a crucial role in locking in increased emissions, and their impact is often ignored in climate change policy, The AI said in the report.“Australia has a unique opportunity, and obligation, to face up to the climate crisis through policies to limit its carbon exports, starting with a moratorium on new coal mines,” it said. “The scale of exports from countries like Australia bring into stark relief why efforts to reduce world emissions must limit both demand and supply.”In terms of its own greenhouse gas pollution, Australia generates 1.2% of the world’s emissions while having just 0.3% of the population, according to the report. Domestic emissions have been rising in recent years as a number of giant gas export projects come on stream, while coal-fired power is still the mainstay of its electricity grid.‘Red Line’Prime Minister Scott Morrison has consistently said that Australia will meet the 2030 targets to reduce carbon emissions it made under the Paris Agreement, but has no clear policy agenda to reach them. His government has been a strong supporter of the coal industry, including backing Adani Group’s controversial Carmichael project, which could open up a new mining region in the country.His government last week rebuffed calls by leaders from its island nation neighbors for a commitment to phase out coal, and watered down language on climate change and coal in the communique that followed the Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu. Australia’s Pacific Minister, Alex Hawke, had earlier told local media that the coal industry is a “red line issue” for the nation that it needs to stand behind.“Many argue Australia’s emissions are small on a global scale, but this research shows the complete opposite,” Richie Merzian, the institute’s climate and energy program director, said in a statement. “Our domestic emissions are large and our exported emissions are even larger.”The AI based its analysis on data from the International Energy agency, with coal and gas figures for 2017 and oil for 2016. Emission factors for the fuels are from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.(Updates with details from Pacific Islands Forum in eighth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: James Thornhill in Sydney at jthornhill3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ramsey Al-Rikabi at ralrikabi@bloomberg.net, Aaron ClarkFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

  • Saudi Arabia Can’t Save the Oil Market

    Saudi Arabia Can’t Save the Oil Market

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Saudi Arabia isn’t as willing to do whatever it takes to support oil prices as it would have us believe. That’s the only conclusion one can draw from what we’ve learnt since a government official said the kingdom wouldn’t tolerate a continued price slide.After crude fell to a seven-month low earlier this month, Saudi Arabia got on the phone to other members of the OPEC+ group of nations to discuss possible policy responses. It doesn’t appear to have got very far.Russia – the key non-OPEC member of the extended producer group – made all the right noises. An emailed statement from its energy ministry said it was “utterly important to act responsibly” by giving the market only as much oil as was needed. You might think that would mean Russia sticking to the production target it agreed with OPEC in December. You’d be wrong.The Russians pumped 11.32 million barrels a day in the first half of August, according to Interfax. That’s up by 180,000 barrels from July and above its pledged daily level of 11.19 million barrels. While the country did produce less than required for three months in a row through to July, that was mainly the result of the Druzhba pipeline contamination crisis.Indeed, Moscow may be better able to weather lower prices than Riyadh. U.S. President Donald Trump’s sanctions on exports from Iran and Venezuela have boosted Russia’s oil income by about $1 billion dollars since November. Russian Urals grade is a pretty good substitute for Iranian crude for European refiners and its value has risen relative to that of the benchmark Brent.So what about Saudi Arabia’s OPEC partners? The biggest of those, Iraq, doesn’t seem to be helping much either. Tanker-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg suggest that its crude exports in the first half of August were the highest in three months. Flows out of West Africa also appear to have been robust in August.Will the kingdom go it alone? Perhaps not.Having already cut more than twice as much oil output as it promised in December, Riyadh has signaled its unwillingness to keep shouldering the burden alone. Its energy minister Khalid Al-Falih insisted at OPEC’s last meeting in July that the Saudis had already cut “deep enough.”They did manage to generate a brief bump in prices by that suggestion of doing whatever it takes. But the market recovery is already running out of steam. And the promise was never quite as meaningful as some thought.As part of the pledge, Saudi officials said the kingdom would keep oil exports below 7 million barrels a day in September and supply customers with 700,000 barrels a day less than they’d asked for. That looks like a big number, but it rather depends on what potential buyers asked for. Dig a bit deeper and the commitment starts to look less bullish.Saudi Arabia didn’t actually say it would cut exports by 700,000 barrels a day next month. Instead, the officials pointed to the 10.3 million barrels a day that they could theoretically produce in September to meet demand, and that the reduction would come from that figure. (It’s worth noting that this 10.3 million figure is more than the Saudis have produced in any other month this year, according to data from the kingdom). So the upshot is that Saudi Arabia’s actual production next month may be about 9.6 million barrels a day. It says it produced 9.58 million last month, so this doesn’t look like a cut at all. And then there’s the issue of where the cuts will come from. Saudi Aramco, the national oil company, has allocated full volumes of contractual crude supply for September sales to at least six buyers in Asia. So the U.S. and Europe will have to bear the brunt of reductions. Supplies to U.S. buyers will be about 300,000 barrels a day less than they’d asked for, according to the officials, while cuts to European buyers will need to be bigger still to hit the 700,000 target.That’s going to be a stretch. The kingdom has only shipped about 530,00 barrels a day to North America so far this year, while deliveries to Europe have averaged just 210,000 barrels, according to Bloomberg tanker tracking. So to be in a position to make the sort of cuts being talked about, buyers must have been asking for a lot more oil than they’ve bought from Saudi Arabia in the recent past.The numbers just don’t stack up. If you’re waiting for a big output cut from Saudi Arabia to rescue oil prices – don’t.To contact the author of this story: Julian Lee at jlee1627@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: James Boxell at jboxell@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Julian Lee is an oil strategist for Bloomberg.
