"the busiest season for drilling is in the winter, when the ground is frozen. Cold temperatures, high winds, frozen ground, heavy snowfall and ice are not ideal for outdoor activity. But for Oil and Gas Industry, the conditions are just right for the winter drilling season in Canada. The frozen ground allows us to move heavy rig equipment where roads do not exist, or without damaging existing roads. When the ground is thawing or wet, road bans are put in place by the county to protect the roads and ground"

Oil Sands Firms Offer to Ship by Rail If Output Limits Ease
why so hot now, when the pattern had been so tame back in much of June?
One factor is the weakening of El Niño. it tried coming back a few days ago, but has fallen off again
This along with much lower global angular momentum is allowing the pattern to take on more of a La Niña-ish look
hence a hotter outcome

Monitoring the northeastern Gulf of Mexico for possible tropical development next week. Conditions are marginal, but water temperatures are incredibly warm. Minimally, heightened rainfall risks need to be monitored during this period.

To illustrate the risk...
The Euro EN, which is preferred in the forecast, has averaged too cool in the past 30 days by 3-5° in the 11-15 Day period from Washington DC points north to Boston.
This is what the 11-15 Day period would look like if this average bias is retained for the current forecast.

A detailed look from Ursa Space Click for the full report here
- The PES Refinery was comprised Point Breeze and Girard Point facilities. The Refinery complex had a capacity to process 335,000 bpd
- On June 10th a fire broke out at the Point Breeze section, and then 11 days later in the Girard Point section a butane vat connected to a 30,000 bpd alkylation unit ignited causing a series of explosions.
- from satellite imagery, Ursa concludes the fire destroyed the alkylation unit, including the eastern half of the train, the reactors and settlers, and damaged adjacent pipelines. In addition, the fractionation tower remained in tact, but pipeline infrastructure connecting unit components was gone.
- The alkylation unit produces alkylate, a premium gasoline feedstock
- Refineries along the Altantic Seaboard are experience challenging economics
- By June 26, NYMEX RBOB was 10% higher than just six days earlier.
