OPEC Chief Tells Climate Negotiators to ‘Look at the Big Picture’

 (Bloomberg) -- OPEC’s top official urged countries to invest much more in oil to meet the world’s future energy needs and said climate policies need to be more “balanced and fair.”

     “It is imperative that all parties involved in the ongoing climate negotiations pause for a moment; look at the big picture,” Haitham Al-Ghais, secretary-general of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, said Sunday at an energy conference in Cairo. They must “work towards an energy transition that is orderly, inclusive and helps ensure energy security for all.”                             



China reopening to swell Exxon, Chevron profits further

The five largest Western oil firms announced nearly $200 billion in profits after the Ukraine war sent energy prices soaring. Strong Chinese oil demand could mean more huge payouts alongside calls for windfall taxes.

Financial markets were stunned in April 2020 when the price of oil turned negative for the first time ever. As demand plummeted during the first COVID lockdown, the main US oil benchmark price fell to minus $30 (minus €28) a barrel.
