BP sanctions Mad Dog Phase 2 project in Deepwater Gulf of Mexico

BP (BP) said it has sanctioned the Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the United States, highlighting its long-term commitment to the country despite the current low oil price environment. Mad Dog Phase 2 will include a new floating production platform with the capacity to produce up to 140,000 gross barrels of crude oil per day from up to 14 production wells. Oil production is expected to begin in late 2021. In 2013, BP and co-owners, BHP Billiton (BHP) and Union Oil Company of California, an affiliate of Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (CVX), decided to re-evaluate the Mad Dog Phase 2 project after an initial design proved too complex and costly. Since then, BP has worked with co-owners and contractors to simplify and standardize the platform's design, reducing the overall project cost by about 60%. Today, the leaner $9B project, which also includes capacity for water injection, is projected to be profitable at or below current oil prices. While BP has reached a final investment decision on Mad Dog Phase 2, BHP Billiton and Chevron, for the Union Oil Company of California interest, are expected to make a final investment decision in the future. BP plans to add approximately 800,000 net barrels of oil equivalent per day of new production globally from projects starting up between 2016 and 2020. Reference Link

Oppenheimer recommends buying Technology, Energy ahead of breakout
Oppenheimer analyst Ari Wald says that the S&P 500's bullish reversal of its eight-week downtrend is confirming the start of a year-end rally, and cyclical stocks should be owned given resuming strength in the index's long-term trend. The analyst thinks the current opportunity is to buy Technology and Energy ahead of a breakout, namely Apple (AAPL), Seagate (STX), Skyworks (SWKS), Western Digital (WDC), Apache (APA), Chevron (CVX), Halliburton (HAL), and Helmerich & Payne (HP).
