Supply outages an 'early indicator' of unrest in oil exporters: Murkowski

Disruptions to overseas oil production should be viewed as a potential warning signal of political instability in export-dependent nations, concludes a new staff analysis issued Monday by Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the ranking Republican on the Senate's energy committee.

The analysis by her committee staff examined unplanned production and export outages in global hotspots, and found those disruptions grew in advance of violent conflicts, most notably as the Islamic State swept through northern Iraq and Syria.

Falling oil prices shake up global economies

NEW YORK (AP) — A sudden plunge in the price of oil is sending economic and political shockwaves around the world. Oil exporting countries are bracing for potentially crippling budget shortfalls and importing nations are benefiting from the lowest prices in four years.

The global price of oil closed at $84.47 per barrel Thursday, down about $31, or 27 percent, from its high point for the year. Oil consumption globally is 91 million barrels per day. That means the world's oil producing countries and companies are bringing in as much as $2.8 billion less in revenue every day — and consumers, shippers and airlines are saving a comparable amount on gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
