Oil prices increased by 3 percent on Wednesday after United States crude oil inventories shriveled more than expected as dominant producers vacated rigs in the Gulf of Mexico in anticipation of a dangerous storm.
The global benchmarks, Brent crude was up $1.92, reaching $66.08 a barrel and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude climbed $1.75, to $59.58 a barrel; both providing a 3 percent increase; however, many anticipate repercussions to follow the forecasted storm.
Top oil companies have begun evacuating and pausing production from 15 offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico after weather forecasters predicted that a tropical disturbance could evolve into a storm later this week.
The Gulf of Mexico is home to 17 percent of United States crude oil production which accounts for around 12 million barrels per day (bpd).
One company that will remain unaffected by this disturbance is Camber Energy, Inc. (“CEI”). Camber is an independent, growth-oriented oil and gas company based in Houston, Texas, engaged in the development of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids.
Holding nearly 15,000 net drilling acres within the United States alone, Camber has also recently acquired Lineal Star Holdings for its midstream and downstream pipeline integrity services.
The Company’s strategy is a balanced approach to acquire and grow energy service businesses that focus in upstream, midstream and downstream sectors that are not severely affected by wide swings in the commodity price of oil and natural gas.
