Who says the days of the larger-than-life oilman are over? Energy advisor and corporate development strategist, Mark A. Stansberry, has traveled the world, met heads of state, consulted with government officials...
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.
The effectiveness and efficiency of an energy corporation depend strongly on the board, officers, and ultimately on a team effort, from all levels. In 2018, I spoke at several events with the presentation being entitled The Digital Transformation: From the Whiteboard to the Boardroom. It seems so simple that there would be open dialogue and discussions among corporate leaders and with all levels. However, there is nearly always a degree of improvement necessary when it comes to corporate communications from the leadership. Several from the “whiteboard” have expressed their concerns that board members in some cases are not responsive to many suggestions, ideas, and solutions in the corporation’s future.
In part one, the focus was on Mexico and its past, current and future energy observations. The ideal situation for the U.S., Mexico and Canada’s energy future would be better served with a strong energy alliance. Currently, each of the three countries are all looking at the energy future in an independent way, versus together. For example, in the U.S., it appears that policies, especially energy policy, are hastily being presented without consideration of all energy and environmental disciplines. The U.S. and the North American energy corridor would be best served with a roadmap of embracing all forms of energy in order to arrive at the correct energy mix for energy use and environmental preservation.
