    Up, up, up: US upstream producers and refiners are highly optimistic after Q1

    The recent round of Q1 earnings calls for US refiners and upstream producers were almost unanimously upbeat. Crude prices of $100+/b oil and unusually high natural gas prices, coupled with changing oil flows from the war in Ukraine, have sparked buoyant US diesel demand while the need for energy security has led to a climbing rig count in both the domestic shale patch and more offshore projects.
    Americas oil news director Jeff Mower sits down with senior downstream editor Janet McGurty and senior upstream editor Starr Spencer to discuss recent trends and future outlooks for US producers and refiners.
