    Colorado and US Energy Security

    Recorded on August 23, 2022



    Episode 62 of the PetroNerds podcast is a jam packed treat for listeners. Ahead of Halloween and midterms, Trisha Curtis updates listeners on the state of the oil market and the Biden Administration's moves on the SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve). Listeners get to hear and see Trisha Curtis on an incredible panel with Heidi Gill of Urban Solutions and Andrew Haney of Nickel Road Operating.



    "The Future of the DJ: Is It Still Economic to Operate in Colorado?" was a panel at the Colorado Oil and Gas Association's annual energy summit in August 2022. The discussion is lively and frank given both Urban Solutions and Nickel Road are private companies. And as listeners know, Trisha does not pull any punches. She speaks to regulators in the room directly about the need to approve permits in Colorado and the state of the oil market, the likeness to California, Colorado's declining production contribution to energy insecurity, and the need for Colorado to decide whether they are pro domestic oil and gas production or not.

    They talk about the banks and the role of financing and ESG pressure and investing, the implications for sabotaging Nordstream 1 and 2 and the lack of long term LNG contracts being signed by Europe, and how Biden's energy policies mirror the failed energy and geopolitical policies of Europe. They talk about the massive growth in US crude oil output from 2010 to 2019 and the incredible domestic and global and benefits and geopolitical impacts that this production had on the US and the world.

Great guests (please let them talk)

Enjoy the show, fantastic guests but the host needs to allow them to contribute more to the discussion. Oftentimes the host dominates. Go back and listen to a few episodes and compare host speaking time vs. guest, you’ll see what I mean. I understand the passion but as someone well versed in the energy space I would prefer less of a description of what is happening in China, and more from the guest on negotiations between purchasers and LNG exporters. Or difficulties in getting projects off the ground, the competitive landscape, what are contracts looking like today vs 5 years ago etc.

Trisha's nice: isabelle ,
