Lest We Forget

The Suez crisis of 1956 was such a momentous event for Great Britain that it reduced a great and proud country from a major player on the international stage to a second rate power, caused its economy to shrink and devalued its currency.

The War on Iraq in 2003

Almost seventeen years ago, a group of neoconservative hawks among them John Bolton, President Trump’s current national security adviser, persuaded President George W. Bush to mount a quick invasion of Iraq because, they alleged, it had “weapons of mass destruction.” That decision, based on dubious intelligence and taken against the advice of many of America’s closest allies, triggered a huge refugee crisis, destabilized the entire Middle East and cost the global economy an estimated $12.584 trillion of which the US economy’s share was $6.52 trillion according to a research paper titled: The Oil ’Price Rise’ Factor in the Iraq War: A Macroeconomic AssessmentI wrote and was published by the United States Association for Energy Economics (USAEE) on the 4th of June 2008.  Moreover, nearly 5,000 Americans lost their lives in Iraq with hundreds of thousands more injured and receiving lifetime disability compensation.

The great rivalry between the United States and China will shape the 21st century. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a great power will never voluntarily surrender pride of place to a challenger. The United States is the pre-eminent great power. China is now its challenger.

The escalating trade war has been casting dark clouds over the global economy creating uncertainty and depressing the global demand for oil and therefore oil prices.

The shift from the pure commodities to the Value-added services (VAS) in the Smart Cities.

All industry players are migrating to innovative services; Power and Gas providers to the energy monitoring, Telcos to the smart home services, device producers to the smart devices. These sectors (VAS) are more and more overlapped. Let's consider the offered range of VASs of an Energy provider, a Telco or a device producer...they are mostly the same.

The great rivalry between the United States and China will shape the 21st century. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a great power will never voluntarily surrender pride of place to a challenger. The United States is the pre-eminent great power. China is now its challenger. 

“The only indispensable superpower” is also a super-indebted power, and its biggest creditor happens to be its presumed chief strategic rival. Is it logical and workable to encircle one’s own banker militarily?

For over forty years energy expectations have been riddled with internal contradictions, and all too often a failure to recognise complexity, the nature and scale of the challenges to be faced, and resultant uncertainty. Key elements of Shell’s “World of Internal Contradictions” scenario, issued

We have entered in an era of significant challenges but also opportunities for the region of South –East Europe when it comes to energy, but what is the future of the region both in the European Union (EU) and globally?

 “South –East Europe will play a pivotal role in the energy sphere in the EU, particularly with Greece and its huge discoveries of natural gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean. Also the TurkStream gas pipeline will bring Russian supplies to Turkey and the EU. In addition, the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) will bring Caspian gas supplies via Turkey into the European Union” says Dr Mamdouh G. Salameh, International Oil Economist; Visiting Professor of Energy Economics at ESCP Europe in London and Speaker at the 4th HAEE Symposium to take place in Athens on 6-8 May, 2019.

LNG as a Transport Fuel - Is the Demand Real?
LNG as a transport fuel continues to attract considerable interest and is establishing itself as a specific new market for gas. Nevertheless, questions remain over the breadth, scale, and rapidity of uptake. LNG can provide significant environmental advantages over traditional petroleum products, most notably as a marine fuel, where a global limit of 0.5 per cent sulphur in fuel oil will be introduced in 2020, but also in some road transport applications. This article reviews the drivers behind the development of the market for LNG as a transport fuel in the light of recent developments and identifies the regions and sectors where demand is likely to be most significant.
