Energy Nonsense From the Wall Street Journal

The lead editorial in Friday's Wall Street Journal  was pure energy nonsense. “Lessons of the Energy Export Boom”  proclaimed that the United States is becoming the oil and gas superpower of the world.

Fries with that?! The US takes a big bite out of the Nigerian pie

It's not been an easy couple of years to be in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria. The last government seems to have given away enormously under-valued concessions to anyone that asked, the currency has fallen off a cliff and no one really knows what it's worth, and oil prices have hardly been kind t ...

Shale Cost Reductions Are 10% Technology and 90% Industry Bust

I am tired of hearing about the unbelievable impact of technology on collapsing U.S. shale production costs. The truth is that these claims are  unbelievable. The savings are real but only about 10% is from advances in technology. About 90% is because the oil industry is in a depression and oil fi ...

U.S. Shale Is Now Cash Flow Neutral

Oil prices are probably already high enough to spark a rebound in shale production. The IEA says that in the third quarter of 2016, the U.S. shale industry became cash flow neutral for the first time ever. That isn't a typo.
