ESG in the Energy Industry — Embracing Change

How did we get here and what is the challenge? The evolution of an energy company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) profile demonstrates the tremendous power of capital markets.

The Texas Cold Snap — Where Do We Go from Here?

Texas’ energy infrastructure, despite being warned after the 2011 freeze about the critical vulnerability of our fuel supplies and power supply system, found itself frozen from a cold weather event that no one thought likely … or even possible.

Colorado Political Headwinds

Canadian Stage-by-Stage Completion Data – Plugging Along

Associated Natural Gas in the Permian – Friend or Frenemy?

International Upstream Returns Still Competitive

Long-lead international upstream projects still offer returns that remain competitive with North American oil plays and the fast-growing renewable energy sector despite growing economic, investor and regulatory headwinds.

Before today, our flagship solution was largely restricted to a small and technical user group. With deep functionality came a complicated interface – and if you didn’t know how to write code, CurveBuilder probably wasn’t […]

Market Update – Election and Vaccines
