China's largest oil company, China National Petroleum, is looking for its first stake in the U.S. as Chinese energy explorers flush with cash look to join the energy renaissance and increase crude production, says Bloomberg. "Chinese oil companies using government loans want stakes in shale fields that are fostering the most crude production in the U.S. in 21 years and helping wean it off Middle Eastern imports."

07:17 EDTCOPIran still struggling to finalize oil drilling contract terms, WSJ says
Iran is still having difficulty finalizing terms under which foreign energy companies can drill for oil there, the Wall Street Journal reports. Iranian oil officials canceled a conference scheduled for this month in London where new contracts for Western companies were supposed to be presented, with official blaming the cancellations on the inability to secure enough U.K. visas for the event, the report says. Another reason for the cancellation are conservative factions thinking that the contracts drawn up by president Hassan Rouhani's oil ministry are too generous to foreign entities, the report says, citing people familiar with the matter. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link

16:15 EDTAPCAnadarko expects to reduce capital program by nearly 50% for 2016
The company said, "As we consider capital allocation for 2016, greater market dislocation appears likely, and the need to again materially lower our capital spending, while continuing to pursue value creation and preservation, is our best course of action. In light of this, we anticipate recommending to our Board an initial 2016 budget of approximately $2.8 billion, which would be nearly 50 percent lower than our actual 2015 capital investments and almost 70 percent lower than 2014. On March 1, we will host an investor conference call and look forward to going into greater detail at that time about our definitive 2016 capital plans and expectations. We believe the accomplishments achieved in 2015, coupled with the steps we are taking in 2016 to materially reduce our capital spending, leverage our competitive advantages and protect our balance sheet, will serve our shareholders well. These actions should enable us to successfully manage through the current market volatility and position Anadarko for future success."

07:36 EDTAPCAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.
