The decision by U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry authorizes 200,000 barrels of sweet crude and 300,000 barrels of sour crude to be drawn from SPR’s West Hackberry site and delivered via pipeline, Jess Szymanski, a spokeswoman for the department, said by email. The trickle being offloaded from the 679 million-barrel reserve isn’t yet large enough to impact prices in the broader market, said Gene McGillian, market research manager at Tradition Energy in Stamford, Connecticut.
(Bloomberg) -- As exportações de petróleo da Venezuela, que são sua principal fonte de renda, diminuíram 24 por cento na primeira quinzena de agosto, intensificando temores de que o país não conseguirá pagar US$ 3,53 bilhões em dívidas que estão perto do vencimento. Foram embarcados 1,27 milhão de barris diários entre os dias 1º e 15 de agosto, ante 1,68 milhão no mesmo período do ano passado, de acordo com dados de alfândega dos EUA e de monitoramento de navios que são compilados pela Bloomberg.
Citgo is starting to feel the effects of falling oil output in Venezuela, exacerbated by 20 years of cash-for-oil deals signed with China, Japan, India and, most recently, Russia. Rosneft PJSC, which signed two long-term oil and oil product supply agreements, said it has made total prepayments for future oil supplies of about $6 billion. That leaves less oil to be processed by the refineries controlled by PDVSA.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
