Ameratex Energy investors are among the brightest and most educated when it comes to oil and gas. There are 2 types of drilling-exploratory and developmental oil drilling. The first is exploring to find oil or gas, while the latter is to bring up already discovered oil and gas deposits. Typically, developmental drilling uses wells that already exist and monitor production at a profitable margin. On average, propane and heating oil prices have fallen in New England and Atlantic Canada by about 10% since January 1st, 2012. The primary driver of heating oil and propane prices is the price of crude oil, which has been falling since January 1st, 2012. Extreme weather, seasonal demand, supply disruptions and speculation can also affect short-term propane and heating oil prices. Therefore, to get an idea of where heating fuel prices could go, you have to understand where crude oil prices could go. Historically, in the past, over a period of several decades (and beyond), there has almost always been a sizable number of what could be called "professional middlemen" who operated in the oil and other commodity "secondary market" trading industries who are primarily but genuinely driven by the belief or inner conviction that working as an intermediary in the industry is a reasonable path to honest living which, if not leading one to an instant wealth, then at least to a reasonable means of livelihood and steady economic progress and well-being. Why are oil prices lowering? Crude prices have primarily gone down due to concerns over the economic growth rates of the United States, China and Europe. Slower economic growth leads to lower demand for oil, and therefore lower prices. There are several ways that you can make investments with oil and gas, through company stock purchase, mutual funds that invest in the energy sector or commodities trading. You need to do research on when is a good time to buy and sell oil and gas investments. Right now, prices are down, so we are nearing the bottom, because of the state of the economy. As the economy comes back, oil and gas investments will go up in value. These events will likely lead to lower 2012 crude oil prices: Lower predictions for the global economic growth and recovery, and therefore lower oil demand; No resolution to the European debt crisis, and therefore a belief that Europe's economies will continue to suffer; Conflicts in Africa and the Middle East get resolved in 2012 and oil supply increases (e.g. Yemen, Syria, Sudan and Iran). These events will most likely lead to higher 2012 crude oil prices: Decrease in oil supply from African and Middle Eastern countries due to conflict or economic sanctions (e.g. Yemen, Syria, Sudan and Iran); Ameratex Energy Forecasts for global economic growth improve, particularly in the United States, China, or Europe; The European debt crisis is resolved in 2012 and Europe's economies improve. There are many companies that drill for oil or gas as speculative ventures. There are also established companies that have been around for years. Some of these companies stop operations when the cost to produce outweighs the consumption and prices they can sell for. Unlike other industries, large oil-gas investments companies are very astute at monitoring cost of production and profit margins.
