Germany Hopes to Import LNG from Canada to Speed Transition Away from Russian fuel

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz used a meeting with Canadian Prime
Minister Justin Trudeau to push for closer energy ties as his ruling
coalition in Berlin races to find alternatives to Russian fossil
fuels.Germany hopes to import liquefied natural gas from Canada to
help replace the Russian gas it still relies on for more than a third of its

U.S. Natgas Down 7%; Freeport LNG Outage Leaves More Fuel for Storage

low, as the shutdown of Freeport’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) export
plant in Texas allowed utilities to stockpile more fuel than expected even

weeks ago about the potential wash-out in cotton, grains, natural gas
and other commodities; even Bitcoin (BTC-USD). Why? A flight to safety
by investors who I expected would “cash in” on profits in many markets.
This has indeed already happened, and now potential weather problems

soybeans (SOYB) rally back. My concerns about how a potential global
recession could have on commodities are featured in my latest issue of
Climatelligence. Natural gas prices bottoming on upcoming big-time
heat. One of the most volatile and difficult commodities to trade for
months has been natural gas. Following a stellar 100% p… For more info
