ADC AUTHOR Congress could help start hundreds of infrastructure projects across the country by appropriating money to the Defense Community Infrastructure Program (DCIP), according to analysis the Association of Defense Communities released this week.“This ready-to-go infrastructure plan makes national security the first priority,” ADC writes in “Implementing the Defense Community Infrastructure Program: A Survey of Projects Ready to Enhance Military Value.”Congress created DCIP in the defense authorization bill to allow for DOD matching grants to state and local governments for critical off-base infrastructure needs affecting installations’ resilience and readiness.A national survey helped ADC identify more than 200 projects in 28 states that could be eligible for DCIP funding. The report describes the projects, which range from transportation and public safety to utilities and other joint services.The defense bill authorized up to $100 million for DCIP, but that would need to be officially appropriated by Congress.
The oil price increase following the death of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah is unlikely to continue as there is an oversupply in the crude market, say industry sources.In a television speech, newly-anointed King Salman said that he will stick with his predecessor’s policies. The royal decree stated that Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi’s role will not change.Saudi Arabia is a key constituent of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel. At the OPEC meeting held in November 2014, al-Naimi declined to cut output “despite a slide in prices, marking a shift in strategy toward defending market share rather than supporting price,” Business Insider reports. This move irked fellow exporters, Iran and Venuzela.Oil GlutPointing at the oversupply in the oil market, Stephen Schork – President of Schork Group – noted that even as the King’s death matters, it does not change the fundamentals; maintaining that Saudi Arabia would try to preserve their market share.Brent crude rose as high as 2.6 percent on Friday after the King’s death was announced.King Salman ReutersThe markets knew beforehand that Salman, in his previous role as the Crown Prince, backed the policies of late King Abdullah, eliminating any uncertainty, LiveMint reports.The kingdom is unlikely to face in-fighting, as the hierarchy is well defined. However, the question that is worrying the people is whether they will witness any progression under the new king, in a place that is long known for being very conservative.Ali al-Naimi Saudi Arabia’s Oil Minister Ali Al-Naimi attends the First Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Petroleum Media Forum in KuwaitReutersAli al-Naimi has served the kingdom as its Oil Minister since 1995. He sets the oil policy for the kingdom in consultation with the ruling family. He also represents the nation at the OPEC cartel and holds considerable control. The 79-year-old is also the chairman of the board of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).The nation produces more than a tenth of the world’s crude oil and is the only nation that can act as a swing producer. Saudi Arabia depends on oil for 46 percent of its GDP, though in the recent years, it has been trying to emulate Dubai’s infrastructure boom.
