    Germany Says It's "Ready" To Build Infrastructure To Import U.S. LNG

    Germany's Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier announced earlier this week that European nations were ready to build the necessary infrastructure to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the U.S. At this time, Europe has 28 ‘regasification' import terminals. "Then it will be up to the U.S. to offer prices which are competitive," Altmaier told the press. While importing gas from Russia via pipelines is relatively cheap for Germany, as Europe's largest importer of natural gas Germany seeks to diversify its supply source to ensure energy security and competitiveness.

    Market minnows: Providence Resources is drilling for oil in the Irish Sea

    If someone said, “let’s look for oil off the Irish coast”, you’d think they were mad. Unlike the North Sea, the Irish Sea has no oil operations, meaning Ireland relies solely on imports for its energy. The company says there are 350 million barrels in the Barryroe oilfield, just off Cork’s coast, making it one of the largest undeveloped discoveries in the region.

    After lean years, Big Oil is under pressure to spend

    Executives at the world's biggest oil and gas companies are under growing pressure to loosen the purse strings to replenish reserves, halt output declines and take advantage of a crude price rally after years of austerity. With oil at a four-year high of $85 a barrel, exploration departments are urging company boards to drill more, wages are creeping higher, service companies say rates will have to rise and some investors say Big Oil must start growing again soon. For the heads of companies such as BP (BP.L), Chevron (CVX.N) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.AS) who have pledged to stick to lower spending after slashing budgets by as much as 50 percent since 2014, the pressure may become hard to resist.

The Nordic country has been lobbying its partners in NATO to focus on collective defence of its territory rather than interventions outside its borders -- and it has paid off.

    China, Brazil and the Future for U.S. Corn

    Thanks to research, corn yields are staggeringly high -- typically more than 170 bushels per acre -- and is used in a mind-boggling array of products, including to fatten livestock, as well as to make high fructose corn syrup, ethanol, and plastics. "Adverse weather in South America and lower planted acres have been pushing corn prices up along with a huge growing demand base for Chinese corn-based ethanol," says Shawn Hackett, a frequent commodity commentator and president of Hackett Financial Advisors. Talk of a trade war between China and the U.S., and uncertainty over NAFTA has taken some wind out of its sails.

    Business Highlights

    Talks to keep Canada in a North American trade bloc broke up Friday and will resume next week as the United States wrangles bitterly with its long-time ally over the protected Canadian dairy market, U.S. attempts to shield some drug companies from generic competition and other issues. President Donald Trump notified Congress Friday that he plans to sign an agreement in 90 days with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement — and hopes Canada can brought on board, too. To understand why the impact of President Donald Trump's tariffs could be felt throughout the United States, consider this: From the West Coast to the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, at least 10 percent of imports at many ports could be hit by new tariffs if Trump's proposals take full effect, according to an exclusive analysis of government data by The Associated Press.

    U.S. wheat growers have Trump's ear on old Canada trade gripe

    CHICAGO/DEVILS LAKE, N.D., Aug 31 (Reuters) - Gordon Stoner, who grows wheat in Montana about a mile from the Canadian border, would like to sell his wheat to grain elevators in nearby Saskatchewan. “When I cross the border, my wheat is automatically treated as feed wheat," said Stoner, referring to a Canadian grain classification. The label translates to a deep discount: Saskatchewan grain elevators this month were paying about 30 percent more for premium-graded wheat used to make breads and pasta versus feed grade wheat fed to animals.

    Australia's Darwin seeks to shed frontier image to become world-class LNG export hub

    MELBOURNE/TOKYO (Reuters) - Australia's tropical city of Darwin wants to establish itself as a world-scale energy export hub, building on its closeness to demand centres in Asia and abundant nearby natural gas resources. With the imminent start-up of Inpex Corp's $40 billion Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, the capital of the Northern Territory will be home to two LNG exporting facilities, with a total capacity of 12.6 million tonnes a year, including ConocoPhillips' Darwin LNG plant that opened in 2006. Darwin is poised to become the nucleus of the Northern Territory's push to expand LNG exports by tapping 30 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas offshore northern Australia.

    Exclusive: India's milk powder exports to surge on subsidies, dampen global prices

    A massive milk glut in India could hit international prices for dry milk powder after government subsidies aimed at supporting local farmers look set to spur a ninefold surge in exports, industry officials told Reuters. India's skimmed milk powder (SMP) exports are expected to rise to 100,000 tonnes in the 2018/19 fiscal year as rare government incentives spur overseas sales and make shipments from the world's biggest milk producer competitive on the global market. The rise in shipments from India could weigh on global SMP prices that have more than halved in four years due to surplus supplies, according to analysts and industry officials.
