What will the U.S. E&P Company look like in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023

clock icon

The storage for the U.K. just hit 100%, and the E.U. is at 91%. Does this mean we are out of the woods? Not hardly. Gas flows into Europe have been dwindling, but the storage has been increasing with the huge migration of power plants to coal and oil.

Why do we need oil? What products are made with oil?

clock icon

Along every supply chain, there are many steps, and almost 99% of those steps require energy.

What is the fallout from last week's Biden run to Saudi Arabia and the "Fist Bump that will live on in infamy"?

clock icon

Biden's staff thought it would be a good idea to have a fist bump picture. What could go wrong by begging them for oil and lying about what happened during the meeting?

What is CCUS?

What is happening to Oil and Gas prices today? We look at the data, trends, China's housing, and geopolitical issues.

clock icon

With the new potential sanctions being lifted from Iran, it will only have a short-term price impact. Many countries are already buying Iranian oil at a discount, and the demand reduction has not impacted the overall world pricing structure.

Let's talk about the "Inflation Reduction Bill."

clock icon

The one thing constant throughout this entire discussion is that higher taxes are on the way for all Americans. Plan now.

The world is at $96 oil, and we may be in a recession, but where do we go from here?

clock icon

I have never seen such a time in our history where the future can go about four different ways, each with a common theme. Investors will get richer, and consumers will bear the brunt of the energy crisis.

Biden has doubled down again; this time, he is making his trip to Saudi Arabia look like an episode of “America’s Got Talent.”

clock icon

Biden went to Saudi Arabia to beg for oil, came away empty-handed, and ironically slammed the United States energy markets the very next day.

What does the Supreme Court Ruling on the EPA mean for U.S. oil companies and consumers?

clock icon

"The SEC, FTC, and other agencies are making novel use of old statutes to make big, sweeping policy changes—which is exactly what the Supreme Court has said it would review very, very skeptically," said Mr. Scalia

What does the worst stock selloff in half a century mean to the energy markets?

What does the Fed’s 75-point increase mean for inflation and energy?

clock icon

The Fed's decision to do a 75-point increase was like placing a bet in Vegas. The house always wins; in this case, the house is inflation.

Double Standards Will Not Ease The Pain At The Pump

clock icon

When your country's leaders have double standards, it can hit your pocketbook in so many ways. You may think this is a Democrat vs. Republican discussion, but it’s not. There is enough disappointment to go around.

Why are we doubling down on disastrous energy policies, driving up inflation and costing consumers?

What is going to happen to diesel prices? Are we going to $7 to $9?

clock icon

Until the government enacts a wartime clause found in the Jones act; get ready for inflation, a recession, and the need for portfolio protection. 

blog-post-image

Did inflation, Russia, and the energy crisis just turn ESG investors to run to oil and natural gas investing?

clock icon

It's no good brag, but it's good to state facts. The fact is: I called it several months ago that investors reaction to high inflation and the looming recession would bring them back to the highest performing sector in the U.S. investing markets... Energy.

Is it demand or production destruction causing high oil prices?

clock icon

When my Grandad and Dad were at the dinner table, we would talk about oil prices with supply, demand, drilling tech and how good the roast was. Well now the dinner table is on the move with sporting events, travel, running here, running there, and trying to run a business. Dinner has shifted from family discussions to meals on wheels, and the family discussions all take place via text.

What did Exxon and Chevron’s Q1 earnings tell the market?

clock icon

The earnings for Exxon (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) were yet another verification of what the future holds for investors and their portfolios. The stage for the market turmoil we are facing on the markets today started years ago when the world started printing money for flawed energy policies.

Are we in an Oil and Gas price “Supercycle”, and what does that mean?

clock icon

Is this a “Supercycle”? Well, I do know, but what we do know is that we are in the 4th commodities boom in human history. As I have talked about, the wealth generated by commodities is the only way to survive against inflation and higher taxes. This commodities boom will be longer and more widespread due to the total breakdown of the world’s supply chain and societies' interdependence on energy. As we can see again today that countries will go to war over energy and food supplies. The next few years will be very interesting to see how the world's leaders look to solve these issues.

What is holding up Natural Gas prices? What goes up must come down, or does it?

clock icon

While everyone is not shocked that the price of oil is hovering around the $100 mark, even JP Morgan put out the $180 price in an article in Market Insider. Some other key points in that article were the immediate embargo would displace 4 million barrels per day out of the world oil market, and secondly, a slower phase-out of Russian crude would have little effect on prices.

If Europe cannot get off Russian natural gas, can the United States stop importing from Putin?

clock icon

There are some false narratives being talked about in the news, on social media, and at the water cooler in people’s offices. Those narratives include how important wind and solar are in the electrical grid in New England, and how pipelines are bad. Do you turn on the light switch and expect the lights to come on? Well, we are blessed in the United States to have reliable electrical systems and have become accustomed to it as a regular part of life.

Putin's Price Hike- the new pricing matrix we should be looking at

How do the mixed signals on energy from the current administration sent to the world, oil and gas executives, and U.S. citizens impact prices at the pump?
