Oil slips after briefly breaching $75 for first time since 2014

  Oil slips after briefly breaching $75 for first time since 2014 Crude oil fell from its highest level in more than three years in New York on prospects for accelerating supply and as traders curbed bullish bets before tomorrow’s public holiday. Futures in New York jumped as much as 1.8 percent, then quickly declined. Oil has been buffeted lately as U.S. President Donald Trump -- facing high retail gasoline prices ahead of midterm elections -- has been pushing Saudi Arabia to boost output. And today, a report from data-provider Genscape Inc. is said to show Texas Gulf Coast crude stockpiles rose by about 431,000 barrels last week, reversing previous declines and undercutting prices.

The president of OPEC urged Canada on Tuesday to invest in infrastructure to move oil and gas, or risk watching investment flow away to the United States.

The Canadian government agreed in May to buy the Trans Mountain oil pipeline and a related expansion project from Kinder Morgan Canada (KML.TO) for C$4.5 billion ($3.4 billion), highlighting the lengths deemed necessary to overcome stiff opposition to such projects.

Insufficient space in the country's oil pipelines has deepened the discount Canada's heavy crude can attract from U.S. refiners, compared with U.S. light oil futures.

"If you don't have the major infrastructure, investors are going to go to your neighbor, where infrastructure is not an issue," said Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries President Suhail al-Mazrouei. "Act and act quickly if you want to retain those investors. I am being frank because I want to be a true friend to the Canadians."

"I don't want them to lose opportunities."

Mazrouei was speaking in Calgary at a TD investor conference during the city's Stampede, an annual rodeo that is also the year's major meet and greet for Canada's energy sector.

Mazrouei, the United Arab Emirates' energy minister, also singled out Canada's low-priced natural gas. Much of it is produced in landlocked Alberta, and the country lacks a robust liquefied natural gas (LNG) export sector to consume it.

  Crowds in Moscow make Qatar rethink 2022 World Cup plans \The big numbers of Latin American fans who came to Russia are making 2022 World Cup organizers rethink their own plans for Qatar. Tens of thousands of people gathered in central Moscow even when their team was not playing. The much smaller city of Doha would be packed for the tournament's first two weeks in November 2022 if the same occurred.

LNG Canada, a proposed C$40 billion export facility for the British Columbia coast, is being reviewed by its joint venture partners ahead of a final investment decision.

"The solution is LNG and pipelines to export that natural gas," Mazrouei said. "If you provide optionality for the gas, it's going to fix itself.”
