Fuel Oil Price

The developments are clearly contrary to the fundamental market situation, which is characterized in the United States by full warehouses and low demand. LEIPZIG. (Ceto) The price of crude oil has attracted significantly throughout the day today. The quotes by almost a dollar climbed until the afternoon. Therefore the barrel cost US light oil to deadline almost 76 dollars; North Sea oil (Brent) was traded along with about $79. The breakthrough of resistors supported lift by he triggered automatic connection purchases.

The developments are clearly contrary to the fundamental market situation, which is characterized in the United States by full warehouses and low demand. The financial scene defends itself against losses”, one analyst describes the situation. The impulses coming from the economy, are contradictory and rather favour a sideways movement of the prices. On the price, you expressed a Europe worse than expected US labour market data, as well as slightly falling share price. Price rising, however, had a slightly better American Real estate market as well as the closure of a refinery in New Jersey, which every day could handle 238,000 barrels of crude oil and is expected only in operation goes back in November. An explosion in a Novoil refinery, however, has not had a reportedly on the production quantities and should offer no breeding ground of speculators.

Still, it remains to be seen how the recent low back area in the Gulf of Mexico is developing and whether it could result in the closure of production sites. On the local oil market, crude oil price to transfer offset part of the tees yesterday from last night. According to the survey of fuel level and oil Rundschau were premiums by 39 cents per 100 litre batch (total: 3,000 litres heating oil EL) due. Now, it costs 67,46 euro. This value is still below the average of 68,06 euros of soon ending September. Comparison: the cheapest during the previous year heating oil price is 58,60 Euro, the highest 72,29 euro.

Crude oil demand in China “very disappointing” LEIPZIG. (Ceto) Today, the crude oil price has consolidated at a low level. Until the afternoon, the quotes under mild rashes swayed sideways; US light oil is around 74,30 dollars. While the contracts were traded October still roughly half a dollar higher than on Friday in the morning due to the new front month. At the end of last week, the price of oil had recorded significant losses.

The fundamental situation huge resources are a much lower demand compared to is unchanged. Even speaking the economic data of last week for anything other than a demand. Slightly stabilising impacted today, however some economic data from the euro zone. However, it is distressing that a guarantee for increasing oil demand has reduced its needs China in recent months. Eugen Weinberg, commodities analyst of at Commerzbank, described as very disappointing”the development in the Middle Kingdom. In addition was also in the coming months with hardly an improvement can be expected. Vineyard does not exclude that the price of oil falls to $70 per barrel by the end of the year.

This means his prognosis in contrast to those of other economists, who were interviewed by the news agency Dow Jones. So both the NORD/LB and Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg (LBBW) expect higher prices. From the perspective of the LBBW were likely term of twelve months oil prices to the $85. At the NORD/LB to reckon with for the year with an average oil price of $ 91 per barrel. Meanwhile, the euro-dollar rate limited the downward travel of local oil prices. According to survey by fuel level and oil Rundschau the reductions amounted to 26 cents compared to the last trading day the national average today. The 100-litre batch cost therefore 66.10 euro fuel oil (EL) a 3,000 litre supply. Still, respond to customers in terms of orders behavior and apparently put on further declines in prices. The risk that they rise again in the fast-moving business, however, is. Consumers should so don’t wait too long with the stock. Michael Urbach editorial Tel.

Nationwide Average Fuel

(ddp direct) Households with a heater had to in the… Households with a heater had to spend significantly less money for their fuel last year than households with a gas heater. Nationwide average 2009 a game of 3000 litres fuel oil cost 1622 EUR. For the similar amount natural gas (33.540 kWh plus fee) 623 euro more, had to be paid in annual average 2245 EUR. Follow others, such as Danske Bank, and add to your knowledge base. Based on a litre of fuel oil price in the annual average 2009 amounted to 54 cents, converted for gas at 75 cents. Because heating oil owners have an own long-term energy storage with their tank, they could fill their energy supply during the past year even more affordable. Who fueled in March 2009, for example, paid per litres of fuel oil to the 47 cents.

The price data are based on the regular surveys of the journal “Fuel level”. The latest annual balance sheet of the Institute for economic oil heating (ICR) confirmed once more: fuel is a cheaper also compared longer-term Fuel.

Fuel Oil Price August

On the fifth day in a row, heating oil in Germany costs more than on the previous day in LEIPZIG. (Ceto) It came this afternoon, as it had to happen. As positive market data were still missing and also today the U.S. unemployment figures were higher than expected, the technically driven prices for US light oil of type of STI (declined by 64 cents to 81,80 dollars compared to yesterday’s day finally) and North Sea oil of Brent (dropped 74 cents to $81,36) collapsed significantly. Among investors today also a realistic view on the last published data prevailed of the Department of energy, which announced a reduction in the crude oil inventories 2.3 million barrels. Because whilst the reserves of petrol and Mitteldesillaten rose and gasoline demand in the United States has fallen, these numbers also could not support crude oil prices as firmer equity markets, where the price of oil-oriented, and the euro, which once again brought his yesterday’s loss of 1 cent on the dollar. Thus prices are approaching the back original usual for this time of year trading range between 70 and 80 dollars.

In the face of continued comfortable supply / demand situation we do not expect a permanent overcoming of the mark of 80 U.S. dollars per barrel, but in the coming months with a decrease in the direction of 70 US dollars”, as analyst Eugen Weinberg of Commerzbank commodity research. Also, he sees a further contradiction to an expected shortage of crude oil in the difference between the short – and long-run contracts, which recently strongly declined. The oil price in Germany, however, followed the yesterday’s gains and also responded on the fifth day in a row with premiums. After collection of the journal fuel level and oil Rundschau, the 100-litre batch 22 cents more than yesterday and so 68.26 euro cost heating oil EL. The graphics on the energy Portal show the development of the domestic fuel oil prices in the national average, and in the individual federal States in the section of market data. Regional differences are due to the market possible at any time.

Renovation Of Heating With Heat Pump And Geothermal

Heating renovation no longer correspond to the latest state of the art with heat pump and geothermal old boilers. Today a variety of heat sources are offered to save energy economically and environmentally friendly. The old boiler consume often much more fuel than new heating systems. Usually older boilers are oversized and no longer correspond to the current state of technology. Much energy wasted through exposed pipes and poor insulation, as well as inadequate insulation. This impacted the own purse, as well as the environment. Modern heating systems, however, are environmentally friendly and economical.

Because not every heating system is the same, you should inform yourself before targeted and choose the best remediation option with an expert. Old oil heaters for example must not be removed, but can be also equipped with modern boilers. Wants to redevelop its heating get, generally different heat sources are available. If you would like to know more then you should visit Penguin Random House. For example, the drilling of borehole heat exchangers brings many Advantages. The geothermal probes be taken vertically into the ground. When planning, the depth and the number of probes are already set.

The land use is not affected by the probes and the performance remains constant even during long winters. Heat pumps guarantee energy-saving environmentally friendly operation. You have the security of a permanently available source of energy (such as heat) which is independent of fossil fuels. Conceptually, a heat pump as a refrigerator works. This steals”the food heat and then again returns to the living room. Divide can heat pumps heat pump air-water and air air.

Czech Government Republic

The construction of agricultural biogas plant in Prilozany, in the South of the Czech Republic, was carried out in four months. Biomass in the Czech Republic the most important source for renewable energy should be up to the year 2015. The demand of Czech investors and operators for biogas plants is correspondingly high. Equipment from manufacturers who have experience abroad and offer a nationwide service. WELTEC BIOGAS POWER GmbH, Vechta belongs in the tenth year of existence of the experienced German bio-gas plants manufacturers and has already built the fifth facility in the Czech Republic during the summer. The construction of agricultural biogas plant in Prilozany, in the South of the Czech Republic, was carried out in four months.

After pouring the concrete of sole in March vertical feeder could begin in the same month with the construction of 2500 cubic metres-large stainless steel fermenters, the cogeneration (CHP) and the 35 cubic meters large. The construction of the biogas equipment was completed in May. Beginning of June already poured the first gas through the pipes. The final approval of the test operation was carried out in June. The WELTEC biogas plant contains a bio gas emergency flare and does not Hygienisierungs – and separation unit. In the CHP, a gas engine unit with 366 kilowatt performance ensures the electricity which is fed into the network. The energy efficiency of the plant is high, because the heat generated in the operation sheds and stables is used. The plant is fed with substrates and manure of the operator, as well as surrounding farms: pig manure, silage, corn silage, GPS and crop waste.

For the construction of biogas plants in the Czech Republic, the EU and the Czech Government use targeted incentives. A key reason: The carbon dioxide emissions per capita is high in a worldwide country comparison. From an EU environmental fund and an EU fund for the development of rural areas, Czech farmers will receive financial support for the construction of biogas plants. The feed-in Act ensures decentralised green electricity in the Czech Republic since 2005 for an increase in the production of energy from renewable Sources. In 2010, around 10 percent of energy from alternative sources were produced; in 2008, the ratio was four per cent.
