Temperatures are expected to reach or exceed all-time record highs in Seattle and Spokane, Washington; Portland, Oregon; and Boise, Idaho; after a “heat dome,” or large […]

Will Fracture Sand Pricing Power Return?

Rigs have jumped nearly 30% YTD in the Lower 48. The average number of actively fracturing fleets jumped 20% month-over-month in January and has remained steady since.

Do Renewable Asset M&A Multiples Point to a Bubble?

The M&A market for renewables assets gained momentum over the past decade (Figure 1), demonstrating increased interest that we attribute to cost declines, stricter government policy and growing societal support. Recent high-water mark deal multiples of $8-$10 million/megawatt (MW) observed in the North Sea raise the question of whether renewable asset valuations are floating in […]

ESG in the Energy Industry — Embracing Change

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. Our natural gas producing infrastructure was not weatherized. Our power plant and transmission infrastructure were not […]

Associated Natural Gas in the Permian – Friend or Frenemy?

For years associated natural gas from oil production in the Permian Basin has been viewed as a byproduct with little monetary value. Infrastructure constraints and challenged pricing caused many operators to flare produced gas rather than capture and sell it.
