Shale gas blasts open world energy market

The reason is shale gas — a new and abundant source of natural gas, trapped in rock formations. Oil companies have known about it for decades but always dismissed it because it was too expensive and difficult to extract. In the past few years new technologies that pump water underground to fracture the rock and free the gas have been perfected. The breakthrough has opened a new frontier for the energy industry and turned long-held assumptions about the world’s dwindling supplies on their head. Suddenly, America is awash with gas. Tony Hayward, chief executive of BP, said it had created a “a revolution in the gas fields of North America”.

Putin has given us a wake-up call: we’re vulnerable to blackmail

Gazprom under Mr Putin is about control. Gazprom has been moving downstream in Europe, buying up hunks of gas infrastructure and developing joint ventures with European companies all the way “from the well to the end consumers”. It is moving in on Europe's energy assets unobstructed despite the strict limits - and foul play - that dog foreign investors in Russian oil and gas fields, where Royal Dutch Shell and BP have got badly burnt.

From the Kremlin to Caracas, how oil collapse changes everything

As the price of a barrel falls to below $50 for the first time in years - to a third of its value just a few months ago - petrol will be cheaper but the shockwaves mean crisis for oil-producing nations and further instability for a battered global economy

Beware the bear trap

In the oil sector, all the major companies have been drawn into the Kremlin's new great game.
