How will fossil fuel-aligned voters respond to 'headlines in search of policy' in 2024?

With the recent indictment of former President Donald Trump, and with the prospect of more to come, the political waters of the country appear to be at their best muddied, at least for the Republican camp that has been a key backer of the oil and gas industry for decades.

S&P Global Commodity Insights senior journalist John Siciliano spoke with Dan Eberhart, the CEO of Canary, the fifth largest installer of wellheads in the US, about how the 2024 presidential race is shaping up. On the podcast, Eberhart also delves into his concerns about challenges at the local level as more states are upping restrictions on hydraulic fracturing, which could make it harder to operate in parts of the country where Canary has seen the most success. He also addresses the future of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and provides his insights on the Environmental Protection Agency's recently released clean car rules.

Truckin’: The long, strange trip of electric pick-ups

Americans love pick-up trucks, and the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that make them rely on their relatively high profit margins to fuel earnings. Darragh Punch joins EnergyCents with hosts Hill Vaden and Sam Humphreys to discuss North America’s love affair with pick-up trucks and why electrifying them could be so important to mass EV adoption in the United States.

AI is changing the energy system, putting premium on flexibility

This week, Energy Evolution reports from CERAWeek, S&P Global's flagship energy conference. Our first conversation from the 'Super Bowl of energy' is with Arshad Mansoor, president of the Electric Power Research Institute. With AI changing the energy landscape at lightning speed, grid flexibility is increasingly indispensable, Mansoor tells podcast co-host Taylor Kuykendall. Given that, innovation and deployment of small modular reactors and hydrogen cannot come fast enough, Mansoor says.

How are gas operators navigating the difficult gas environment in 2024?

Pressured by sub-$2/MMBtu prices, many US producers have decided to cut spending on gas-directed drilling and completion activity and to scale back production in 2024. But there are signs of price improvement along the futures curve in late 2024 and thereafter, due in part to the arrival of new LNG facilities, giving operators reason for optimism. In this episode, Jeremy Beaman, natural gas news editor, talks with Bryan Mcnamara and Imre Kugler, directors of upstream research, about how natural gas producers are approaching a difficult price environment and what their plans are for 2024 and 2025.
