    U.S. Midwest oil refiners boost output, cut region's dependence on Gulf Coast

    U.S. refineries from Ohio to Minnesota are capitalizing on access to cheap crude from Western Canada and North Dakota oilfields, helping their region break a historic dependence on fuel from the Gulf Coast while redrawing oil trade maps. Since the early 2000s, crude and fuel flows from the Gulf Coast into the U.S. heartland have been cut in half, as crude coming from Canada and North Dakota has pushed U.S. Midwest refining activity to record levels. In 2016, Midwest refining capacity rose to 3.9 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude, the highest annual volume on record.

    Russia's Rosneft to take control of Iraqi Kurdish pipeline amid crisis

    LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's biggest oil company, Rosneft (ROSN.MM), has agreed to take control of Iraqi Kurdistan's main oil pipeline, boosting its investment in the autonomous region to $3.5 billion (£2.6 billion) despite Baghdad's military action sparked by a Kurdish vote for independence. The move appears to be part of a strategy by President Vladimir Putin to boost Moscow's Middle Eastern political and economic influence, which was weakened by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Rosneft's investment comes amid a crisis in Kurdistan's relations with the central government in Baghdad since the region held an independence referendum last month, which angered neighbours Iran and Turkey.

    BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg to step down next year

    BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg is to leave the oil major next year. Mr Svanberg took up the position just four months before the Gulf of Mexico disaster in April 2010. Eleven workers died in the explosion and fire aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig - with the blowout then resulting in the worst environmental catastrophe in US history as an estimated five million barrels of oil spilled into the sea over 87 days.

    BP's Chairman Svanberg to step down as Macondo pain subsides

    BP's Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg who helped navigate the British company through the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, announced his intention to step down after nearly 8 years in the post. BP rarely replaces both its chairman and chief executive in close succession, so the decision means current CEO Bob Dudley, who also took office in 2010, is likely to remain in his position for some time yet, according to company sources. Svanberg will chair the annual general meeting to be held in May 2018 and will remain in his position until a successor is in post, the company said in a statement.

    U.S. diesel margins to drive refiner profits for Q3 and beyond

    NEW YORK, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 18 (Reuters) - U.S. refiners are set to blow past quarterly earnings expectations after margins surged to a two-year peak on the back of a crippling hurricane season that squeezed already tight gasoline and diesel supplies. A series of hurricanes, most notably Harvey, which struck Texas in late August sapped demand for crude oil and led to crushing gasoline lines in various parts of the U.S. Southeast and Midwest. It came after a summer when refiners surprisingly reduced their volumes of distillates - heating oil, diesel, jet fuel and kerosene - just before demand for those products ramps up in the fall and winter.

    EBRD board approves $500 mln loan for TANAP gas pipeline project

    BP eyes smaller renewable investments to avoid repeating losses

    BP (BP.L) is targeting smaller and wider-ranging investments in renewable energy to avoid large losses in the sector like those it suffered earlier in the decade, Chief Executive Bob Dudley said on Wednesday. BP and peers including Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) and Total (TOTF.PA) have recognised the need to reduce carbon emissions in the fight against global warming, but their investment in renewables remains tiny compared to oil and gas. "We're making smarter, in many cases, smaller bets, and making more of them across a wider range of technologies and business models," Dudley said in a speech at the Oil & Money conference.

    Iraq wants to bring back BP after regaining control of Kirkuk oil

    BAGHDAD/LONDON (Reuters) - Iraq said on Wednesday it wanted to bring back BP (BP.L) to help develop Kirkuk oilfields, which Baghdad's military took over this week from the Kurdish Pershmerga forces, but the oil major said it was in no rush to return until security improves. Kirkuk became the key area of tensions between Baghdad and Erbil since Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan held an independence referendum three weeks ago, triggering an angry response from Baghdad and neighbouring Turkey and Iran.
