We were notified on Tuesday by the new host company of an unprecedented attack which caused our new site to put out of service for several hours earlier this week.

Bolivian president Evo Morales plans to restore control over companies which at one time belonged to the government, but a decision regarding railways (half Chilean, half private Bolivian) plus telecommunications will be delayed.

“For us it is essential that the government as such plays an active role in productive processes and therefore having control over the companies is crucial, that is why we nationalized hydrocarbons”, added Aguirre. read more

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Oil held firm above $70 on Thursday after a smaller-than-expected rise in U.S. gasoline stocks reignited talk of resilient oil demand in the world’s top consumer, moving inflation worries to the backburner.

U.S. light crude (CLc1) for August was up 23 cents at $70.56 a barrel by 0406 GMT, having gained 99 cents on Wednesday, its first rise in three sessions amid a gasoline-led rally.

Gasoline (HUc1) jumped 3 percent on Wednesday after U.S. government data showed a 300,000-barrel increase in gasoline stocks, despite an increase in refinery utilization, against earlier expectations of a bigger 1.2 million barrel rise. read more

Royal Dutch Shell Plc: Oil majors seek unconventional assets

FROM BLOOMBERG
 
Oil companies such as Exxon Mobil Corp and Royal Dutch Shell Plc may rely on oil sands and other unconventional hydrocarbons for about a third of their reserves by 2020 as conventional discoveries dwindle, said Neil McMahon, an oil analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.

The share of unconventional oil and gas resources such as liquefied natural gas and oil shale may double to about 38% of Exxon’s hydrocarbon assets by 2020, McMahon said in a June 19 research note.
 
Shell’s reliance may rise to 37% from 12.9%, enabling it to sustain production as older fields decline. read more
