Despite an extended streak of strong profits, shale companies are slowing their oil-field activity, keeping U.S. oil production roughly flat and offering little relief for tight global markets.
What was expected to be a banner year for U.S. oil production has failed to materialize as creeping inflation-related costs, supply-chain snarls and disappointing well performance for some companies have coalesced to limit domestic output, executives and analysts said.
Leaders Gather for COP27 as Fallout From Ukraine War Complicates Climate Talks
SHARM EL SHEIKH, Egypt-World leaders began to converge on Egypt on Monday at the outset of two weeks of climate talks overshadowed by the war in Ukraine and energy-market turmoil.
French President Emmanuel Macron and U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will help kick off the proceedings, while President Biden will join the talks later in the week. Absent from the summit are the leaders China and Russia, countries that have a pivotal role in shaping the global energy map.
Midterm Election Campaigning Intensifies Across U.S. in Closing Days
Candidates made their closing arguments to voters in key battleground states during a busy final weekend of campaigning before Election Day, as Republicans grew more bullish on their prospects for victory in the battle for Congress.
With voters expressing concern about inflation and dissatisfaction with President Biden's stewardship of the economy, Republicans are heavily favored by nonpartisan analysts to win control of the House of Representatives in Tuesday's elections. Democrats had better odds of keeping their Senate majority, but Republican candidates were making late polling gains in such states as New Hampshire, Arizona and Pennsylvania.
Senior White House Official Involved in Undisclosed Talks With Top Putin Aides
WASHINGTON-President Biden's top national-security adviser has engaged in recent months in confidential conversations with top aides to Russian President Vladimir Putin in an effort to reduce the risk of a broader conflict over Ukraine and warn Moscow against using nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction, U.S. and allied officials said.
The officials said that U.S. national-security adviser Jake Sullivan has been in contact with Yuri Ushakov, a foreign-policy adviser to Mr. Putin. Mr. Sullivan also has spoken with his direct counterpart in the Russian government, Nikolai Patrushev, the officials added.The aim has been to guard against the risk of escalation and keep communications channels open, and not to discuss a settlement of the war in Ukraine, the officials said.
Ukraine Accuses Iran of Training Russian Drone Pilots
KYIV, Ukraine-Ukraine said it has evidence of Iranian instructors training Russians to operate drones used to hit civilian targets across the country in attacks so damaging that the capital's mayor urged residents to consider temporarily leaving the city.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko advised residents to stock up on essentials such as water, charged batteries, food supplies and warm clothing, warning that a total blackout couldn't be ruled out.
Mitch McConnell Helped Shape GOP Senate Midterm Field, Now Pushes for Strong Finish
WASHINGTON-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lost trusted GOP colleagues to retirements, failed to persuade some top choices to run for Senate seats and ended up with some nominees who questioned the 2020 election results or attacked him personally.
But with just days to go until the midterm elections Tuesday, the 80-year-old Kentucky lawmaker has helped maneuver a new crop of Republicans into a strong position to win back the Senate, thanks to fundraising prowess that allowed his allies to shore up nominees in competitive races.
