When Justine was among the first to ban Russian crude, he didn’t mention that we hadn’t imported any in years. }};-D
He texted me yesterday as he’s been reading METaR and got the impression from someone’s posts that I have influence with the US administration and the big guys in the oil patch. Asked me to let them know that we could probably spare enough to make up for much of the missing half million barrels a day or so from Russia and have them call. We can move it by pipeline or if preferred on trains but not by tanker unless you want it dropped off in California.
I told him that my portfolio contains only about half a dozen positions mostly under $20K in the industry and he should perhaps ask the experts with far more influence than me.
Anyone else want to blame me for being personally responsible for the Canadian Energy Business? While recs are limited the ignore button isn’t.
