"Weapons are an extension of my body," says Ramirez Sanchez, aka Carlos the Jackal. Adapted from a five-and-a-half-hour mini-series, this three-hour biopic chronicles 20 years in the life of the egotistical Venezuelan revolutionary who founded a worldwide terrorist organisation.

After months when BP, through bad luck and its own obvious failings, simply couldn't catch a break, the company now has at least one thing going in its favour – the rising oil price.

Rising oil prices could dampen the steadily strengthening demand for crude amid the fragile beginnings of economic recovery, the cartel of the world's biggest oil-producing countries warned yesterday.

BP famously "doesn't do" oil- price forecasts. After 18 months in which crude has ricocheted from just under $100 per barrel to an all-time high of $147, then down to less than $40, and now up to $73 again, you can see their point.

Global demand for oil is back on the rise, making further production cuts by the Opec producers' cartel unnecessary, the Saudi Arabian Oil minister said yesterday.
Wednesday 29 April 2009
Outlook So far, so good. The bumper profits reported by oil companies for last year, fuelled as they were by the sky-high oil price, were plainly not going to last into these recessionary times, so there had been fears that even the mighty BP would succumb to the dividend-cutting trend set by the rest of corporate Britain, depriving investors of yet another once-trustworthy source of income in an increasingly income-scarce world. The evidence of yesterday's first-quarter figures is surprisingly reassuring; the payout may survive intact. Yet that's a big "may".

Opec ministers have agreed at their Vienna conference to leave oil production levels broadly unchanged, and to focus instead on stopping individual members from producing above their quotas. The 12-nation organisation, comprising major producers such as Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Iran, has seen oil prices decline from a peak last July of $147 a barrel to around $40 now. Many have said that they do not regard this price as compatible with long-term needs, while the oil companies such as BP have suggested the $60 to $80 range is sustainable.
Saturday 14 March 2009
Outlook: Opec wasn't giving much away yesterday as its staff prepared for the cartel's latest summit, which takes places in Vienna tomorrow. On balance, however, another cut in production is more than likely. Opec's own analysis suggests global demand for oil this year may be even lower than previously thought. It also points out that developed countries have almost two months' worth of oil stockpiled.
