ETFs tied to energy infrastructure enjoy strong gains, as oil prices (CL1:COM) reversed early losses to settle higher; September WTI settled +1.7% to $41.70/bbl, while October Brent +0.6% to $44.43/bbl.The Global X MLP & Energy Infrastructure ETF (NYSEARCA:MLPX), Van Eck Vectors Energy Income ETF (NYSEARCA:EINC) and Alerian Energy Infrastructure ETF (NYSEARCA:ENFR) all are surging ~4% and on track for their best week since June 5."Oil again rejected the sub-$40/bbl area as talk starts to circulate that we could see a significant draw down in U.S.
The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California this week struck down the Trump administration's rollback of most of a 2016 rule designed to minimize the venting and flaring of natural gas from oil and gas wells on federal land.The court ruled that the Bureau of Land Management's attempted rollback failed to adequately justify its policy changes and acted in such haste and "unmitigated fervor" that its rulemaking contained "myriad inadequacies."In her ruling, the judge praised the contents of the Obama administration's rule, saying it was "modeled on cost-effective standards" and "included reasonable exemptions," and criticized the Trump administration's rule for limiting its economic calculations to domestic costs despite "the scientific and economic facts" about the costs of greenhouse gas emissions.The attorneys general of California and New Mexico, who teamed up on the lead case, applauded the decision as a victory for human health and the environment.ETFs: XLE, XOP, VDE, OIH, GUSH, BGR, ERX, DRIP, FENY, ERY, DIG, FIF, IYEDear readers: We recognize that politics often intersects with the financial news of the day, so we invite you to click here to join the separate political discussion..
Crude oil futures (CL1:COM) rise after the U.S. reports the biggest weekly decline in crude inventories so far this year, even as OPEC+ agreed to taper record production cuts of 9.7M bbl/day down to 7.7M bbl/day starting next month and lasting through the end of the year.Domestic crude supplies fell by 7.5M barrels for the week ending July 10, far more than a forecast by analyst polled by S&P Global Platts for an average decline of 2.1M barrels; the American Petroleum Institute yesterday reported a draw of 8.3M barrels."Imports into the U.S.
Pres. Trump is expected to announce tomorrow a streamlined approach in considering environmental consequences when approving new oil wells, pipelines, highways and other projects.The first-in-decades rewrite of the rules governing how agencies scrutinize projects under the National Environmental Policy Act, signed in 1970, reportedly would limit the scope of agency reviews as well as what projects warrant the scrutiny.Trump has maintained that some of the "most critical infrastructure projects have been tied up and bogged down by an outrageously slow and burdensome federal approval process."The rule being finalized does not change the law itself - which only Congress can do - but alters the way the statute is implemented, including by placing deadlines on agency reviews and ruling out analysis for projects with minimal federal funding or involvement, a shift that could protect some potential oil pipelines that do not cross over federal land.ETFs: XLE, XOP, VDE, OIH, GUSH, BGR, ERX, DRIP, FENY, FCG, ERY, DIG, FIF, IYE.
The Trump administration plans to retain a national limit of 70 parts per billion for ozone, the standard set by the Obama administration five years ago after business groups fought tougher standards, WSJ reports.The Clean Air Act requires the Environmental Protection Agency to review ozone, soot and certain other named pollutants every five years.EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler reportedly says the decision to retain the current standard was based on a review of the scientific literature, even as U.S.
