On July 26 Wim Franken joined our Patriot team in Belgium. Wim brings years of experience when it comes to the oil and gas industry and we have no doubt he will help us further. Invite him to your netwerk and give him a warm welcome.

​​​​​​​“My role within Patriot International is to follow up the On-Site Services in the Benelux, as well as to improve the follow-up processes. The other part of my role is to support the further growth of Leak Sealing Service. I believe in the growth opportunities of Patriot International as a service company and therefore expect that Patriot International can also proudly step forward as a strong service team in Belgium in a relatively short time after previous successes in England and The Netherlands.”

“My role at Patriot International is to increase the On-Site Service side of the business supplying manpower, equipment and to compete for larger scopes we are in a great position to complete successfully, including Turnarounds, Maintenance and Construction projects.

I have 24 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry initially as an On-Site Service technician before moving onshore over 10 years ago.

Onshore I was based in client offices as company focal point for all work scopes before moving onto an operations manager role.” – John Duthie

Oil gained, topping $60 a barrel, as investors continued to assess the recovery in consumption globally.

Futures in New York rose as the dollar fell, making commodities priced in the U.S. currency more attractive. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that the U.S. economy was poised for stronger growth, but he cautioned that the pandemic remains a threat. That’s been highlighted in other regions including parts of Europe, while another wave of infections in India is overwhelming the health system.

Yemen’s Houthis said they attacked oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, as the group steps up strikes on the kingdom, a reminder of political tensions in the Middle East. While such attacks have increased this year, they rarely claim lives or cause extensive damage.

Oil has gotten stuck in recent weeks, as traders look for more signs of a recovery in consumption from the Covid-19 pandemic. Trading volumes have slumped — falling below their 15-day average every day last week — as the market awaits a breakout. In the meantime, the OPEC+ alliance agreed to add more barrels from May.

“Oil is in wait-and-see mode for the next catalyst,” said Giovanni Staunovo, commodity analyst at UBS Group AG. “The accelerating pace of vaccination we already see slowly will result in less mobility restrictions and support oil demand and prices.”

There are already signs emerging of the potential impact of a steady reopening in the U.S. on consumption. United Airlines Holdings Inc. said it saw an acceleration in customer demand in March, while U.S. air passenger numbers remain near their highest level since March.

Further down the line, the outlook for the oil market may be getting weaker, though, Morgan Stanley analysts Martijn Rats and Amy Sergeant wrote in a report. That’s because Iranian supply may return quicker than expected, while U.S. drilling activity has continued to increase. It means price gains later this year could be limited, they said.

A record amount of 26 billion euros (around $31,7 billion) has been invested last year (2020) in the European offshore wind sector, according to the latest figures from industry body WindEurope.

Europe is a major player in offshore wind power. The world’s first offshore wind farm, in waters near the Danish island of Lolland, was commissioned in 1991.

The Monday’s announcement said the investments will finance a total of 7.1 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind capacity, with projects set to be developed and built over the next few years.

Europe’s offshore wind power now stands at a little over 25 GW of capacity, with 42% of this located in U.K. waters. Long term, the EU, which the U.K. left in January 2020, is targeting 300 GW of offshore wind power by the middle of this century. U.K. want their offshore wind capacity to hit 40 GW by the year 2030.

Hydrogen will play a major role in the global energy markets over the coming decades. Taking away a large chunk of oil demand, according to Bank of America’s head of global thematic research.

“We believe that hydrogen is going to take 25% of all oil demand by 2050,” he went on to state, adding that oil was “facing headwinds left and right. Yes, we’ll still need it, yes, it’s still going to be around, but the market share of oil is going to plummet.”

Hopes for hydrogen

Hydrogen is another area starting to gain momentum. The EU has laid out plans to install 40 gigawatts of renewable hydrogen electrolyzers and produce as much as 10 million metric tons of renewable hydrogen by the year 2030.

Hydrogen can be produced in a number of ways. One includes using electrolysis, with an electric current splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen. If the electricity used in the process comes from a renewable source such as wind then it’s termed “green” or “renewable” hydrogen.

Changing times?

In the last few years, governments and companies around the world have announced goals to reduce their carbon footprint and move away from fossil fuels. Both the UK and EU are targeting net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

In a sign of how things may be starting to change, a number of energy majors — who, it should be noted, remain big players in oil and gas — are now ramping up investment in renewables such as solar and wind.
