A tanker carrying 650,000 barrels of Venezuelan crude oil is reportedly bound for Europe, the first time Venezuela has exported crude to Europe in the past two years under US sanctions. It is analyzed that the U.S. is making up for the European energy gap caused by the sanctions against Russia by giving the green light to Venezuelan oil exports.

Germany will take emergency measures to ensure it meets its energy needs, including increasing its use of coal, the German government said recently, after a drop in gas supplies from Russia.
"In order to reduce gas consumption, it is necessary to reduce the use of gas for electricity generation," the Economy Ministry said in a statement. We're going to have to switch to more coal-fired power plants."
The measures announced that day also include an "auction" system to sell natural gas to manufacturers, according to reports. The German government says the system will help reduce gas consumption in manufacturing industries.
The measures come as Russian energy giant Gazprom recently warned that it would sharply cut gas supplies to Europe, the report said.
The supply and prices of international bulk zinc stearate are still very uncertain.
Zinc stearate is mainly used as lubricant and release agent of styrene resin, phenolic resin and amino resin, as well as vulcanizing active agent and softener in rubber.
What is Zinc stearate used for?
It can be used as a non-toxic stabilizer for polyvinyl chloride with low initial coloring and good weather resistance. This product should not be used alone, because it has a significant catalytic effect on the degradation of PVC, and the product can change color sharply after a period of time. Combined with barium and cadmium soap, it is used in general soft products. The dosage of this product should not be too large, but when used in conjunction with epoxide and phosphite, the dosage can be increased appropriately.
It can also be used as a lubricant for styrene resins, including polystyrene, ABS and SAN resins and as a release agent for transparent products. In the rubber industry, this product can be used as a lubricant and diaphragm agent (anti-sticking). Besides. It can also be used as textile polishing agent, paint polishing agent and cosmetic ingredients.
Metal soap powder. Used in incense powder, pressed powder and other places to create. Mainly used as an adhesive of fragrant powder to increase the adhesion of fragrant powder on the skin. Zinc stearate is light and soft, which can be added to powder cosmetics and coated with other powders, making fragrant powder easy to penetrate. The amount of addition is generally 5%, 15%.
Antifoaming agent. Light and heat stabilizers. Paint flatting agent and abrasive. Foot drying lubricant and isolating agent. Stabilizers, release agents and lubricants for plastic products. Waterproofing agent for concrete, brown asbestos, paper and fabric. Used in cosmetics and ointments.
Where is Zinc stearate used in?
1. Used in pharmaceutical industry, curing oil and lubricant preparation, as well as paint desiccant. Used in the processing of PVC and rubber non-toxic products, it has a synergistic effect with calcium stearate and barium stearate, and can effectively improve the photothermal stability of PVC and rubber products. The dosage in PVC processing is usually less than 1 phr.
2. Used for rubber products, also used for PP, PE, PS, EPS polymerization additives and pencil lead manufacturing, the general dosage is 1: 3 phr.
3. Zinc stearate can be used as heat stabilizer, lubricant, grease, accelerator, thickener and so on. For example, it can be used as a heat stabilizer for PVC resin.
4. Used for general industrial transparent products; used with calcium soap, can be used for non-toxic products, generally used for soft products, but in recent years have begun to use hard transparent products such as mineral water bottles, water pipes and other products, this product has good lubricity and can improve the phenomenon of scaling and precipitation. it can also be used as a lubricant, release agent, and paint flatting agent, paint additive.

Gas prices in European countries are expected to triple if Russian supplies are restricted, according to a press release from Rystad Energy, a Norwegian Energy consultancy.
The price of natural gas in Europe was $1,200 per 1,000 cubic meters on Tuesday. The benchmark price is already 300 percent higher than a year ago. European gas prices are expected to continue to soar to $3,500 per 1,000 cubic meters if Russian supplies are restricted, according to Analysis by Monitor.
In 2021, Russia delivered 155 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe, accounting for 31 percent of its gas supply, according to an analysis by Monitor Advisors. It would be difficult for Europe to replace Russian gas, which would also destabilize the global LNG market and have a profound impact on Europe's population and economy.
The analysis also said that if Russia stopped supplies now, Europe's current gas reserves would be exhausted by the end of the year, setting in for a cold winter.
In addition, affected by the geopolitical factors, the supply of the zinc stearate is erratic and thus its prices are expected to go higher in the future.
