Bonds linked to Kurdistan’s oil exports have fallen to a record low amid escalating tensions between the semi-autonomous Iraqi region and the federal government in Baghdad. Securities due in 2022 that were issued to help fund Glencore’s prepayments for Kurdish oil have slumped 6.7 percent since late September, much of the retreat coming in recent days as forces from the south seized oil fields that had been run by Kurds.
Saudi Arabia and OPEC both made comments in the past 24 hours that look ostensibly supportive of oil prices. The reaction for crude futures has been muted -- at least initially. Brent, the global benchmark, erased earlier declines to trade marginally higher at $55.67 a barrel, close to parity with Friday’s close. WTI, the U.S. crude marker, did a little better, gaining about 35 cents from its Friday close, having earlier been about 16 cents down.
“For most of my career, this has been the big swing factor on our earnings but this was completely disrupted by the arrival of American shale,” Rodgers said of OPEC’s historic influence on tanker demand and shale’s response. “From a standing start of zero barrels a day, it’s gone to 750,000 barrels a day and over half of that is being shipped on big tankers, which are going to China,” he said, referring to U.S. crude exports.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
