Oil Prices Rise On Surprise Crude Draw

Ray Merola

I recently retired from Shell Oil after serving over thirty years in the energy industry.  My career was concentrated in the downstream business; serving various roles in Shell Pipeline, oil products distribution, environmental management, and marketing engineering.  I accrued significant joint venture experience, serving on numerous corporate boards. 

 

My final role at Shell was the Global Manager, Supply & Distribution Joint Ventures. 

 

I have a Civil Engineering Degree and am a registered professional engineer in the State of Texas.

 

The world of investing has always been a passion of mine.  Currently, I contribute to the online investment blog, Seeking Alpha:  http://seekingalpha.com/author/ray-merola

 

My primary investment philosophy is to identify undervalued companies that are well-managed, possess a strong balance sheet, generate good cash flow, and pay a dividend: then premise a thesis for owning their securities.  I advocate fundamental investment analysis, confirmed by the technical charts.
