Exclusive: U.S. agency gives quiet nod to light oil exports – sources

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The main U.S. export authority is telling some oil companies that they should consider exporting a lightly processed form of crude oil called condensate without formal permission, according to people familiar with the discussions.

In conversations that may help clear the way for more overseas sales of U.S. shale oil, the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has told companies seeking clarification on the legal status of so-called “processed condensate” that self-classification – whereby companies export their product without any formal authorization – could be a way forward, the people told Reuters.

Obama: Keystone benefits for U.S. consumers, workers nominal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama said on
Friday that construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to
transport crude oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast would
only nominally benefit American consumers and workers.

“There is very little impact – nominal impact – on U.S. gas
prices, what the average American consumer cares about,” Obama
told reporters during an end-of-year press conference.
