Hicks: There is no transportation crisis for Alberta

By Graham Hicks, Edmonton Sun, September 26th., 2014

If there's a looming transportation crisis for Alberta oil, why have Suncor and its partners committed $10 billion to the new Fort Hills oilsands project?
Why is Exxon-Imperial Oil full speed ahead on its $8.9 billion expansion of Kearl Lake, even as Phase I is just getting up to speed?

Let's not be stupid. Nobody puts that kind of money into any business, without 100% certainty the product will get to market.

Yet we keep hearing, time after time, that without new pipelines west (Northern Gateway) and south (Keystone XL), much of Alberta's oil will be trapped with no way out.

Here's the reality, as explained to me by a few veterans of the oil transport business.  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE


Oilsands victory in Europe - but how will they get it there?

By Daniel Schwartz, CBC News, October 9th, 2014

The Canadian government and the oil industry can clearly claim a victory after Tuesday's announcement by the European Commission that it will not go ahead with a proposal that would have labelled oilsands oil as emitting more greenhouse gases than conventional oil production.
But the reality is that very little Alberta oil gets sold to European countries right now, and getting oilsands oil there should still be more of a challenge — especially at a competitive price.

Although the European decision will be disappointing for many environmental groups, it "provides a signal that Europe is open for business," says Nathan Lemphers, an independent oilsands policy analyst.  READ MORE HERE


How Alberta’s oil patch teamed up with the ‘little guys’ for an end run around Obama

By Rebecca Penty, Hugo Millar, Andrew Mayeda and Edward Greenspon, Bloomberg News, October 7th, 2014

So you’re the Canadian oil industry and you do what you think is a great thing by developing a mother lode of heavy crude beneath the forests and muskeg of northern Alberta. The plan is to send it clear to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast via a pipeline called Keystone XL. Just a few years back, America desperately wanted that oil.

Then one day the politics get sticky. In Nebraska, farmers don’t want the pipeline running through their fields or over their water source. U.S. environmentalists invoke global warming in protesting the project. President Barack Obama keeps siding with them, delaying and delaying approval. Keystone has become a tractor mired in an interminably muddy field.  READ MORE HERE

I appreciate all your calls and emails. I'm looking forward to helping you with your next step towards building real wealth.
Your success continues EVERYDAY, let me help you build for tomorrow.
