Today's notable energy news:

Iran's Revolutionary Guards intercepted a second UK-operated oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, supposedly in retaliation for the seizure of an Iranian vessel earlier this month. The Iranians claim the ship was stopped for possible environmental violations. The event comes one day after the US military shot down an Iranian drone.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) cut its 2019 oil demand forecast, due mostly to weak Chinese economic growth. The agency originally set an oil demand forecast of 1.5 million bbl/day, downgraded to 1.2 million bbl/day in June, and now 1.1 million bbl/day. The IEA warns the global economy appears weak, and may warrant another downgrade later this year.
Schlumberger appointed Olivier Le Peuch as its new CEO, replacing Paal Kibsgaard who will retire on August 1. The company also reported a 5% increase in its second quarter revenues today, driven almost entirely by markets outside of the US and Canada.
CNX Midstream Partners boosted its quarterly dividend 3.6% to $0.3865 per share.
