Global Energy Outlook 2022
December 14, 2021

Before I address the global energy outlook for 2022, I want to thank all of those who have been an important part of my journey in the energy industry in 2021. Many thanks to readers of my columns, blogs, magazine articles, presentations, and radio/podcast interviews. A special thanks to Shawn Wilson, Butch Black, and the Exploring Energy Team! Also my appreciation to GTR News/Forrest Cameron, Emmanuel Sullivan/Oilman Magazine, and all the listeners of my National Energy Talk podcast. It was great to be back on the speaking circuit, including presentations at York College, (York, Nebraska), National Association of Royalty Owners Annual Convention, Professional Petroleum Data Management Association’s Houston Expo, and the World Trade Summit in Oklahoma. A highlight of 2021 was attending the World Petroleum Congress in Houston. My presentations in 2021 focused on strategic optimization and developing pathways to our energy future, emphasizing natural gas/LNG, hydrogen, infrastructure, and the digital transformation. 

Strategic Optimization 1440
December 14, 2021

Strategic Optimization 1440 (1440-how many minutes are in a day) is an initiative that I have designed for companies in the process of corporate development. The energy industry is challenged with the global energy transition dialogue. This is the first of a series based upon the theme of “Strategic Optimization 1440.” I interviewed José Beceiro for the National Energy Talk podcast, which aired on October 2nd. The following is an excerpt from that interview. 

Oklahoma's Energy Pathways
October 20, 2021

On October 14, 2021, The National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) convention was in its fourth day at the Omni Hotel, Oklahoma City. The same day, the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Expo, hosted by SOER (Sustaining Oklahoma’s Energy Resources), was being held at the Bennett Event Center, at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds. NARO was founded over forty years ago. NARO has twelve chartered state organizations. All chapters provide education, political action and state conventions. NARO keeps royalty owners across the US informed and working together on issues of importance to their properties.
