    UK Forties oil cargoes delayed for weeks by pipeline shutdown

    The loading dates of Forties crude cargoes, which help set the global Brent benchmark, have been delayed by at least two weeks and further hold-ups are likely, trade sources said, after the closure of the North Sea Forties pipeline for repairs. The 169-km (105-mile) pipeline, which carries about a quarter of all North Sea crude output and about a third of Britain's offshore gas production, has been closed since Monday, following the discovery of a small crack in part of the system onshore in Scotland. Cargo owners were advised this week of delays to shipments that had been due to load from mid-December, trade sources said.

    BP returns to solar with investment in Lightsource

    BP, which adopted a sunburst logo two decades ago to convey its ambition in solar energy, agreed to acquire a 43 percent stake in Europe's largest solar developer. It will be renamed Lightsource BP. The investment, a fraction of the approximately $17 billion BP has spent in 2017, comes six years after BP wrote down billions on its first investment in solar, when its panel manufacturing business struggled with competition from China.

    Investors pour cash into U.S. shale despite questions on returns

    Financiers keep pouring cash into the shale oil sector, providing producers with a path to keep U.S. output rising through the middle of the next decade. The United States is on track to deliver up to 80 percent of the world's oil production gains through 2025, the International Energy Agency estimates, increases fuelled in part by easy access to capital. Rising U.S. production is undermining OPEC's attempts to curb global supply and boost prices, forcing the oil cartel to continue restraining output through the end of 2018.

    North Sea oil deliveries halted in first force majeure in decades

    Deliveries of crude oil through the Forties pipeline in the North Sea are under force majeure for the first time in decades and operator INEOS said on Thursday there was no timeline yet for repair work that could last several weeks. The 169-km pipeline, which carries around a quarter of all North Sea crude output and around a third of Britain's total offshore gas production, has been closed since Monday, following the discovery of a small crack in part of the system onshore in Scotland. Force (Taiwan OTC: 4923.TWO - news) majeure, which suspends a company's contractual obligations in the wake of situations that lie beyond its control, is common in oil-producing nations like Nigeria where unrest often disrupts output, but very rare in the North Sea.

    Australian watchdog blocks BP buy of Woolworths petrol stations

    Australia's antitrust regulator on Thursday blocked BP Plc's A$1.8 billion (1.04 billion pounds) purchase of Woolworths Ltd's petrol stations, even after the oil company offered to sell some stations to ease competition concerns. BP and Woolworths, which wants to exit the business to focus on its supermarkets, said they were disappointed by the decision after months of talks with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and were reviewing what to do next. "We remain confident that, with appropriate divestments as offered by BP, this transaction would not substantially lessen competition," BP Australia President Andy Holmes said in a statement.

Woolworths and BP announced the deal in December 2016, as the Australian retailer sought to cut non-core businesses and focus on its supermarkets. ACCC found that the acquisition would likely lead to higher prices and reduce competition.

    Oil slips as U.S. gasoline stock build overshadows crude draw

    NEW YORK, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 13 (Reuters) - Oil prices slipped for a second straight day on Wednesday, as a slump in U.S. crude stockpiles was offset by a larger-than-forecast rise in gasoline inventories and as U.S. crude output continued to grow to record highs. U.S. crude inventories last week dropped 5.1 million barrels, more than anticipated, and production hit another record high at 9.78 million barrels per day (bpd), government data showed.

    Ineos declares force majeure on North Sea oil after Forties shutdown

    LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 13 (Reuters) - North Sea operator Ineos has declared force majeure on all shipments of crude oil, natural gas and condensates through its Forties pipeline system that has shut off vital energy supplies to Britain, according to a source familiar with the matter on Wednesday. The company closed the system, which carries the equivalent of a quarter of the North Sea's 2 million barrels in daily oil production and a third of the UK's offshore gas output, on Dec. 11 after it discovered a hairline fracture in an onshore section of the pipeline.

    Broken pipeline cuts British supply during peak energy demand

    Britain's biggest pipeline from its North Sea oil and gas fields is likely to be shut for several weeks for repairs, its operator said on Tuesday, disrupting gas flows and sending international crude prices to their highest since mid-2015. "We are working to get the pipeline restored to full operation as quickly as we can safely do so... We have previously indicated a time frame of three to four weeks and we believe it is no less than two," operator INEOS said in a email to customers seen by Reuters. It has particular significance to global markets because Forties is the largest out of the five crude oil streams that underpin the dated Brent benchmark, against which other crude prices are broadly based.
