Energy crisis has prompted a switch to oil that could boost demand by 500,000 bpd.
OECD commercial oil stocks fell by 23 mln barrels in Sept and are at their lowest since March 2015.
High energy prices could add to inflation that, along with power outages, lowers industrial activity and slows growth.
OPEC+ effective spare capacity could fall below 4 mln bpd by Q2 2022 from 9 mln bpd in Q1 2021.
Shrinking global spare capacity underscores need for increased investment to meet future demand.
Oil demand will exceed pre-pandemic levels in 2022, rising 3.3 mln bpd to 99.6 mln bpd.

Several #interpreters left behind in #AFG who worked for the #Netherlands have received letters from the #Taliban ordering them to appear n court. TB said their families could also be prosecuted if an interpreter does not show up.
#Taliban officially rejected #Dutch media report about #prosecution of former Dutch forces #interpreters by IEA in #Afghanistan:
"According to Dutch national television report, the Islamic Emirate's security forces have summoned interpreters who worked ...
... with Dutch forces for prosecution. We reject this report as untrue and this is just a claim and propaganda.
Some people may be trying to leave the country (Afghanistan) and seek asylum with these kind of claims."

A single source unconfirmed report:

17 #Taliban and 4 #ISKP (Daesh) members were killed in a clash between the two groups in #Arghandab District of #Zabul Province. Local sources told @kabulnewstv that the ISKP fighters, equipped with heavy& light weapons, ambushed the Taliban. Image
In mid-2015, #Zabul Province was a second stronghold of #ISKP in AFG after Nangarhar. #IMU leader, Usman Ghazi & his supporters who pledged allegiance to Islamic State fought Taliban till death in Zabul, but the province was cleared of ISKP in end of 2015.…

A thread on today's crazy high #naturalgas prices, with a few thoughts on long-term implications:
Gas prices have been on a wild ride of late. Several price benchmarks are sky-high. In Europe, the main spot price benchmark (the “TTF”) is a whopping €50/MWh ($17.5/MBtu). That’s never happened before. Various indices tell us Asian spot prices are above $15/MBtu, too. Yikes.
These spot prices are telling us markets are tight. Lots of reasons for this, from factory output rebounding in Asia to aircon use during heat waves to high European carbon prices pushing more gas into the power stack. Storage is low. Supply is gummed up here and there.

How did we get here?

In her 2016 book 'Dark Money', investigative journalist Jane Mayer reveals how an elite group of plutocrats effectively subjected the US political system to a process akin to corporate capture.

Rose Deller summarises:…
A startling statistic from the 2016 US presidential election was that the estimated total campaign spend of $6.8 billion was double the expenditure of the 2012 contest. An estimated $1 billion of this amount came from a few shadowy billionaires backing the Republican Party.
The opaque nature of political finance in America has now been exported & embraced by the political Right in Britain - especially by Conservative party.

@openDemocracy, @BylineTimes & others have been valiantly highlighting this problem for a long time.…

As the #Afghanistan is taken over by IEA.

#TTP is riding the bandwagon as if they are winning. TTP will pretend everywhere as if they are part of #IEA and their fight against #Pakistan is also legit.

A couple of distinguishing factors.
IEA has been fighting a foreign invasion whereas Pakistan is a sovereign independent state with Islamic constitution and build in the name of God.

IEA's success is visible in 20 years short time where they have fought and have taken over Afg whereas.
TTP is fighting for last 15 years and couldn't even taken over a single district and that because they are facing Pakistan Army.

The TTP terror caused thousands of civilian deaths including an attack on kids school and hence they have no local support either.

"In spite of the military gains and advances, the IEA favors a political settlement in the country.
We have opened a #Political_Office for ease of negotiations& are committed to finding a resolution through talks, but unfortunately, the opposition parties are still wasting time."

Superpower or 🤡? "Pakistan’s army & its Inter-Services Intelligence(ISI) play key role in Taliban offensive. Without logistical support from Pakistan, the Taliban would be hard-pressed to operate in such a widespread way".…
2/usa Superpower or 🤡? "Of course, Pakistan has been the Taliban’s patron since its creation in the 1990s.
It is impossible to defeat the Taliban as long as Pakistan provides sanctuary and safety, training, equipment and funds for the Taliban."..3/
3/usa #Clownanalysis101 🤡 "Pakistan cannot be defeated, as it is a nuclear-armed State and has the fifth-largest population in world. ...It is curious that Biden has so little to engage with Pakistan. He has yet to talk with Imran Khan." ☝🏼superpower is going to fight #China?😭

Our #NHS is in danger.


On the 19th June, 2015, ex-Deutsche Bank MD Sajid Javid was the keynote speaker at the opaquely funded free-market think tank IEA’s 60th Anniversary.

He spoke about how "free markets" & sound economics help "everyone".…
The IEA subscribes to a neoliberal worldview & advocates positions based on this ideology, including climate change denial, & total privatisation - in effect abolition - of OUR #NHS.

The dodgy IEA is secretly funded by Big tobacco, & IEA officers have offered "Cash for Access".
Let's have a look at what Javid said to the bankers, hedge-funders & free-market fundamentalists gathered at the IEA, a think tank funded by Libertarian billionaires & disaster capitalists keen to exploit Britain's last remaining publicly funded institutions, especially OUR #NHS.

Hitler won mass support because a major economic crisis had driven Germany into a deep depression: Banks crashed, businesses folded, & millions lost their jobs.

Hitler offered voters a vision of a better future - 'sunlit uplands', you might say.…
The poorest people in Germany voted for Hitler's opponents, notably the Communists & the moderate left-wing Social Democrats, but the lower-middle classes, the bourgeoisie, the unorganized workers, the rural masses, and the older traditionalists all gave their votes to Hitler. Image
Whereas other politicians seemed to dither or act as mere administrators, Hitler projected purpose & dynamism.

He proved a master at denouncing conventions & manipulating the media. He issued an endless stream of #slogans, & hammered them home to win potential supporters over. Image

El Gobernador @herrerayflia anunció ayer dos planes que buscan mejorar de forma ecológica y sostenible la infraestructura y el aprendizaje en nuestras escuelas técnicas y rurales #IEA y #EFA Image
Estas inversiones mejorarán las instalaciones de los establecimientos educativos, permitirán que los alumnos y alumnas tengan un acceso de primera mano a tecnologías innovadoras para aprovechamiento del agua y la incorporación de la energía solar como una aliada de la producción
✅ En 40 establecimientos IEA y EFA se implementará el Proyecto SIEMBRA (Sistema Ecosustentable Misionero de Bombeo y Riego Agricultor). Las huertas de estas escuelas podrán aprovechar la energía solar a través de paneles fotovoltaicos y un sist de captación de aguas pluviales Image

WEDNESDAY MORNING: Once again. Too much to explain, so best to sum up.

First off, #OPEC and its rapidly disintegrating deal, and Trump's part in that as well. #OOTT #Iran
As is known, #Trump went out again on oil prices this morning - a week before the #OPEC deal that ratchets up, again, the tensions on whether #OPEC will do anything (which they're likely to do).
But figures we have show Saudi Arabia/Russia are already abandoning - or at least pulling away from - the deal. #OPEC #OOTT

What is the size of the global #oil spare production #capacity?
1- Spare capacity doesn't matter, what matters is the "effective spare capacity", which is what you can bring on line within 90 days of crude quality that buyers are willing to buy.

2- therefore, there are three conditions:
a- Supply: has to be produced within 90 days
b- Demand: Buyers are willing to buy it: crude quality and price wise
c- Delivery: Ability to deliver to byers. Stranded #oil production with no pipeline to transport should not be counted,
3- Effective spare capacity can be maintained for a long period if needed. Here we have to distinguish between "effective spare capacity" and "surge capacity." If those countries have to increase production only for few days, they can use surge capacity, which is way higher

In another great step by the #Afghan government, #ISKP have blocked cellular communication in districts of #Kunar. Under the threat of a "military" operation, #IS forces have threatened to block up comm towers.…
Now, here is the interesting part... the bulk of the story is about the #Taliban (#IEA) shutting down towers in #Helmand, but the military operation was still carried out against them.

So is the problem, #ISKP in #Kunar& #Nangarhar or the #Taliban (#IEA) in #Helmand, @VOANews?
And while this is going on in #Afghanistan, the #Afghan govt & media is focused on the #PashtunLongMarch2Lahore, where they have shown their full support to a manufactured movement.

Who was held responsible for the murder of #madrassa children in #Kunduz by #Afghan forces?

Sitting in #Washington & claiming “anonymous sources” is just silly.

Sitting in #Pakistan, we know this is #Afghanistan’s #NDS eating the fruits of nurturing #terrorists in #Khost, #Nangarhar & #Patika.

You’ve burned your own fingers playing with fire, @ashrafghani.
But this is the typical #Afghan reaction to #terrorism - it’s not our fault, #Pakistan did it.

The #Americans should seriously consider why their partners in #Kabul are unable to stop terrorism with any resolve.
Also, with #ISKP safe havens spread across #Afghanistan, its in worse condition today than it was before the #US invasion to remove the #Taliban (#IEA) from power.

Victory will not come through blame. It will come through action. Something #Kabul, #Delhi & #DC don’t understand.

The #ISI paid a DEAD #MullahOmar crores of rupees to kidnap #KulbhushanJadhav from #Iran... says the #Indian media via #MamaQadeerBaloch.

#InfoWars begin again with a fake story attempting to connect the #ISI with the #Afghan #Taliban (#IEA).…
#MamaQadeerBaloch is the same #Baloch “activist” that took millions of dollars from foreign sponsors to march from #Balochistan to #Islamabad.

The march was as much of a farce as Mama Qadeer himself.
He is also connected with a supposed claim that 2 #ISI officers walked into #LUMS and threatened the university to cancel an anti-#Pakistan event featuring #MamaQadeerBaloch.

Yet, no video or letter has ever been produced to authenticate this statement.
