    Will Oil’s Pain Trigger Others’ Gain?

    Will Oil’s Pain Trigger Others’ Gain?

    A pandemic can accelerate change. Take for instance the rapid adoption of video meetings like Zoom.  Could COVID-19 also change the trajectory for oil demand?    On this week’s episode, we consider the potential for an oil price spike caused by a lack of new capital investment. What if this occurred, just as electric cars were entering a more mature phase for consumer (more...)

    North American Natural Gas: Could the Future be Brighter?

    North American natural gas producers have had a tough few years and COVID-19 related demand destruction has only made things worse. But could the situation turn around this winter?   On this week’s episode we discuss the current state of North American gas markets, including the significant share of continental gas that is a by-product of oil wells.  With US oil production set to decline, natural gas supply will also shrink.

    America’s Addiction to Foreign Oil: Get Ready for a Relapse

    In 2006, President George W. Bush said America was “addicted to oil” and set a goal to reduce Middle Eastern imports. Over the next decade, technology (not policy) caused a surge of North American oil production. Consequently, the dependence on foreign oil was diminished. But now North American production is set to decline.   On this week’s episode, we consider what actions US policy makers could take to avoid a relapse in their addiction to foreign oil.  What (more...)

Hydrogen - The fuel of the future

This is an amazing story. The way Proton is planning on capturing the H2 leaves the greenhouse gases in the reservoir in its natural, safe state. Hydrogen, a clean, low cost renewable fuel for the future. Alberta could be sitting on 700 years of H2 energy and could be the world leader in the H2 game.
