(Bloomberg) – China’s coldest winter For decades, this meant that the state energy giant Sinopec was determined to unload heating oil from a ship in the direction of the northern harbor, but the icy temperatures that had hit parts of Asia froze a thick sheet of ice and blocked access with the help of an icebreaker ship and a cannon loaded with hot water workers spent 20 hours clearing the way for the tanker to dock and unload its cargo of liquefied natural gas in Tianjin. The effort underscores how freezing temperatures have revitalized US energy markets, which has hit some companies flat and is driving prices for electricity, fuel and ships to record highs. And with temperatures in key markets in Japan, China and South Korea showing no signs of easing, it could take weeks to get back to normal. “This winter definitely took the market by surprise,” said Henning Gloystein, Director at Eurasia Group. « My guess is that this peak will end in spring. » A La Nina weather phenomenon sent a wave of cold air across northern Asia this winter. Beijing last week recorded its lowest temperature since 1966, while Seoul had its coldest day since 1986, with record snowfall sweeping Japan’s west coast. The cold leads to an increase in the heat demand in the entire region. Japan’s spot electricity prices have increased more than ten-fold to record levels, while South Korea and China’s main grid have set records for electricity demand: « Cold weather and electrification of heating can lead to massive increases in electricity demand in winter, » said Alex Whitworth, a research director at Wood Mackenzie Ltd. These three countries are the world’s largest importers of LNG, and the additional demand has helped push prices for spot loads and tankers that carry the fuel to record levels. Disruptions at some massive export factories and shipping delays due to congestion on the Panama Canal also contribute, said Jenny Yang, senior director at IHS Markit Ltd. in Beijing: « The cold winter is not the only reason behind the recent dramatic spikes in spot prices, » she said. « The spikes were likely due to a combination of supply, demand and shipping factors in a relatively thin and illiquid market. » Major electricity suppliers, including Tokyo Electric Power Co., have urged customers to conserve electricity, while the country’s grid manager has instructed power producers in a number of regions to increase generating capacity to maximum output to avoid a supply crisis The snow accumulated in parts of Niigata prefecture is ten times higher than in a normal year, according to the national broadcaster NHK.

According to consulting firm Fengkuang Coal Logistics, futures on the Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange soared to record levels last month, while a spot deal was recently closed for 900 yuan ($ 139) a ton. This is the highest value in nine years. At least one coal ship was idle. North China had to be relocated to avoid the formation of ice near the coast. This is evident from ship tracking data compiled by Bloomberg. In parts of China, where coal supplies are particularly scarce, the government has restricted power supplies to businesses to ensure there is enough supply for home heating. This has resulted in an increase in orders for portable generators and additional demand for the diesel that powers them. That hasn’t supported demand for crude oil, however, as refineries like SK Innovation Co. say they adjusted yields to produce more heat oil, but didn’t increase overall rates. The winter stress is unlikely to end anytime soon. Freezing temperatures and disruptive winds are expected for the remainder of the week in northeast China, according to the country’s weather department. That will keep pressure on coal supplies in Chinese power plants until the weather warms up, said James Stevenson, senior director at IHS Markit: “This will likely remain a problem through the end of winter and an out of winter is coming greater need for re-orders, ”Stevenson said in an email. « All in all, I think this suggests strong pricing – albeit likely due to current highs – for the second quarter. » (Updates with analyst comment in paragraph 7.)

The Trump administration announced on Monday that it would put Cuba back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism in the United States. This could complicate efforts by the new Biden administration to revive strained relations with Havana during the Obama era. Just nine days before President Donald Trump’s departure, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Cuba was being blacklisted for « repeatedly supporting international acts of terrorism » by hosting US refugees and Colombian rebel leaders. Cuba’s security support for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was also cited by Pompeo as another reason for the blacklist. Pompeo said in a statement: « With this action we will again hold the Cuban government accountable and send a clear message: The Castro regime must end its support for international terrorism and the subversion of the US judiciary. » In 2015, the former US President Barack Obama officially removed Cuba from the terrorism list in order to restore diplomatic relations between the two countries. The return of Cuba to the list diminishes those efforts and would require lengthy legal deliberation for President-elect Joe Biden to reverse the move. The term terrorism includes, among other things, a ban on US economic aid and a ban on US arms exports.

(Bloomberg) – Ford Motor Co. is halting production in Brazil after more than 100 years of building cars in the country as part of a restructuring that will cut 5,000 jobs and cost approximately $ 4.1 billion. The automaker said Monday it will close two factories in Brazil immediately and a third by the end of the year, ending sales of three locally made models: Ecosport, Ka and T4. The main job losses are in Brazil, but also include workers in Argentina. The cuts are part of a $ 11 billion global restructuring that began under former CEO Jim Hackett and has now been continued by his successor, Jim Farley. The company will levy approximately $ 2.5 billion in pre-tax fees for 2020 and an additional $ 1.6 billion this year. The most recent plant closings come after Ford closed a heavy-duty truck factory in Brazil in 2019 and billed $ 460 million. Ford will be left with a large factory in a region where founder Henry Ford was present early in the last century: « We know these are very difficult but necessary steps to take to build a healthy and sustainable business, » Farley said in one Statement The move is designed to help Ford achieve an 8% pre-tax profit margin worldwide. South America has been a persistent money loser for the most part for the past 16 years. The company reported there in the first three quarters of last year pre-tax losses in the amount of 386 million US dollars. Ford will announce its fourth quarter results on February 4th. « The market simply does not and will not support our current cost structure in the region, » said T.R. Reid, a company spokesman, said in a press conference today. « What we do will help us build a sustainably profitable business in this part of the world. » Ford said it will continue to sell vehicles in Brazil and elsewhere in South America, including the Ranger midsize pickup truck, which was built at a plant in Argentina and Argentina, transit vans imported from US Ford shares closed 3.3 in New York % to $ 9.30, its highest in a month. Ford’s move to reduce its presence in South America « makes sense » after the automaker suffered an average annual pre-tax loss of $ 800 million. Dan Levy, a Credit Suisse analyst, wrote a note to investors in the region since 2014 . (Updates with details on remaining model offerings in paragraph eight.)
