    Question’s:



    Hi Guys, I find my self coming up to a cross road and would much appreciate some advice. I’m currently at a high end engineering school on my way to a degree in PE.



    I now have a chance to switch my major and move from the petroleum engineering focus to something else. I really love the oil/gas/energy field, but at the same time I’m a bit freaked out about all the change away from oil. Seeing the Saudis diversifying away from oil, several car makers betting exclusively on electric mobility, big oil stocks in a slump, lay-offs,etc, etc makes me wonder, if I should make a move now and change to another engineering major.



    At the same time I hear about oil and gas needing good people and expecting a demographic shortage of engineers in the near future.



    Not sure what to do… Curious what you think and grateful for a bit of advice.















    Our country is set to pump oil from Exxon’s offshore Liza field development early next year (there is talk that it could happen in December this year pending weather). 2020 is also the year our country heads into election and oil is a hot topic. 



    My questions are: 



    * Is political uncertainty likely to affect the production of oil?

    * What should a first time producer country expect? Long term predictions are that output would reach 750,000 barrels in 5 years, revenue to reach $631M by 2024 but what does the first year or two of production entail?



    3.  Keep up the good work!















    Hello, first of all, congratulations for all the great job that you have done. These are my two questions.



    * USA has the best price on Natural Gas, what are some of the real threats that could push the price up? Would you make a prediction on when could this price rise?

    * You used to say that Oil companies were very clear when anyone would call them “Energy Companies”, would you say that this is still the reality in all the companies or are there all open, as TOTAL for example, to accept being call as energy companies?















    Just got around to listening to the podcast from the 28th, and wanted to share thoughts on the discussion you and have had about troops in Saudi Arabia. I have had a few of my military clients sent to Kuwait and Iraq, but also sent to support bases in Germany and Western Europe. I believe it has to do with the Saudi Aramco IPO. U.S. and Saudi relations have always been tricky since FDR, and believe their is still an unspoken bond. With such a strong reliance on oil for the nation, any attack against it once it is public would be a huge setback to the country from an economic and civil standpoint. While private they are able to protect specific information, however as you know, once public there are other factors, stock price primarily, which can be a shock factor for the underlying partners or company. 



    I could go more into detail, but believe this is the main reasoning behind the recent increase in troops. 















    Hello Mark,



        Hope all is well and congrats on the success of all the podcasts. I listened to the conference call from Chesapeake 3 times since ...

    Question’s:



     Hi guys,



    Love the show, this is the first show I started listening to when I was introducted to podcasts two years ago and I have been hooked ever since.  My question is that I recently heard an interview with the Author of the book “Saudi America” that talks about the faults of the energy industry and fracking. Have you read this book or have any thoughts on this?







    The link to the book here.















    Hey Guys thanks for taking the time out of your busy lives to inform and educate the masses I have a few questions I’ll like your opinion on. 



    1 With LNG fast becoming the fuel of the future because its abundant, cheap, has a high combustion efficiency and clean, more operators are starting to require contractors and service companies like Halliburton, schlumberger, and liberty that offer energy intensive operations such as fracking to offer fleets that run on natural gas. There is a startup out of Boston(MIT) making predictions to deliver technology that powers commercial aircraft with LNG by 2032. Is this feasible with the FAA grounding aircraft for simple battery issues?



    Also ,NY politicians have refused to issue permits to a critical pipeline schedule to bring natural gas to New York city on grounds of environmental concerns. With winter fast approaching, National grid the gas company is denying thousands of New Yorkers and businesses gas until the the pipeline is given the green light. thoughts?















    Do you know of any states that have combined oil & gas rules for OSHA? If so, can you give me any contact names, emails, phone#, etc.? Thank you. 















    So on your Oct 7 show you discussed diversity and specifically women in the oilfield. 



    One reason I love your show is that it’s always a conversation even when readers send in viewpoints that diverge. So I’d like to give you my perspective. I’m a 2nd generation oil and gas engineer working in Texas with a petroleum engineering degree and almost 3 years of work (specifically field work experience).



     



    My overall opinion of women in the petroleum industry is that efforts (and it is a true sustained effort) to hire them are “HR deep” and often a basically shallow attempt by a company to improve their public image by having a cute engineer in coveralls on their PR material. I work extremely hard, climb under equipment and get covered with grease. I’ve done well working in the field and running a field crew, mostly because they see I’m not afraid of jumping in and getting dirty even though I’m the engineer.



    I have to work hard and run jobs successfully – my husband died in Afghanistan and I have a disabled brother to support. 



     



    I’ve been treated pretty well overall in the field (by field personnel) but who I feel I’ve been truly been mistreated and at times abused by is management. I’ve been terminated for refusing to date a former manager. At another place I was often singled out for abuse and ...
