El precio del petróleo bajará en un futuro cercano

Si por la víspera se saca el día podríamos afirmar sin temor a equivocarnos que el precio del petróleo bajará drásticamente antes del 2020 y esto se debería principalmente a que EEUU, Brasil y Canadá están aumentando su producción de hidrocarburos, la explotación de gas natural ha crecido y no podemos ignorar que las nuevas tecnologías que se están desarrollando para producir energía podrían traernos grandes sorpresas más temprano que tarde como veremos más adelante.

Hace algún tiempo comentamos en otro escrito que “El shale gas o más conocido en español como el petróleo de esquisto, es -según Wikipedia- “Una forma de gas natural que se extrae de terrenos donde abunda el esquisto. El gas de esquisto se encuentra en los esquistos arcillosos sedimentarios, aunque el interior rocoso del esquisto presenta baja permeabilidad. Por ende, para la extracción comercial de dicho gas, es necesario fracturar la roc…


Mexico’s notoriously violent drug cartels are diversifying. Besides trafficking narcotics, extorting businesses, and brutally murdering their rivals, cartels are now at work exploiting their country’s precious number one export: oil. 

Every day as many as 10,000 barrels of crude oil are stolen from Mexico’s state-run oil company, Pemex, through precarious illegal taps, which are prone to deadly accidents. Pemex estimates that it loses $5 billion annually in stolen oil, some of which ends up being sold over the border in US gas stations. 

As police fight the thieves, and the cartels fight each other, the number of victims caught in the battle for the pipelines continues to climb. VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Mexico to see the effects of cartel oil theft firsthand.


The $1 billion tunnel is expected to pull 16,000 port-bound vehicles a day off Miami’s downtown streets by routing them onto the MacArthur Causeway and then under Biscayne Bay for three-quarters of a mile.

The tunnel was originally scheduled to open May 19, and officials staged a grand ceremony — including a speech by Gov. Rick Scott — even though they knew it wouldn’t be ready for traffic for at least another 10 days or so.

But the 10 days stretched into 11 weeks as the exhaust fans malfunctioned and a drainage pipe sprang a mysterious leak. All the while, the Paris-based construction company Bouygues paid a daily fine of $115,000 to MAT Concessionaire — a forfeiture that will total nearly $9 million by Monday.

Taxpayers, however, lost nothing except an occasional temper. The Florida Department of Transportation won’t start making its $33 million annual payment to the concessionaire until the tunnel opens.

As the opening of the tunnel slipped to late May, then mid-July and finally early …
