Oil speculators are calling a bear market because of the lack of rig count? it looks like they forget that is was Wall-street that asked the oil industry to rain in spending get some positive cash flow on the books..

The largest oilfield service company in the world has seen its earnings hit as the shale industry goes through a soft patch. S&P cut Schlumberger’s debt rating to A+, down from AA-. Meanwhile, Halliburton saw its outlook downgraded from “stable” to “negative.” –oilrag

Yet they don’t count companies like Liberty Oilfield that have been taking market share from those big companies as one of the reasons,  also Oil companies have been more reserved in regards to CAPEX even as oil prices have been trending higher.

In the past, oil would go up and so would investments, creating a boom and bust cycle. not this time. Oil companies have been more calculated and restrained in spending to keep Wall Street happy.

From the looks of it , we have A return to strong cash flow mentality in the oil patch.

Libya NOC representatives traveled to China today to discuss China’s interest in helping to restore Libya’s oil industry that has suffered through years of civil unrest, according to the Libya Observer.

While there, the Libyan delegation met with CNPC and other companies to discuss “cooperation in Libyan exploration and development, oilfield services, and trading of Libyan crude, with parties, potentially cementing future relations through the signature of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at their next meeting,” NOC’s statement read.

“With a more stable security environment, we could easily add between 300-400,000 barrels to daily production and grow oil revenue receipts.
