Episode 52 of the PetroNerds podcast is a special mash up episode with host Trisha Curtis, CEO of PetroNerds and Jason Spiess with The Crude Life. This is an absolute must listen to and must watch episode. Trisha Curtis is recording remotely from Craig, Colorado and Jason Spiess is recording remotely from Elizabeth, Minnesota. The two discuss $100 barrel oil prices and sticky inflation and what that means for the US economy, housing, recession, and new builds.
They talk about the policy drives behind plugging wells, reducing stripper well production, and the impacts to production and energy security. Jason brings up a myriad of topics and asks Trisha about oilfield services, image, and ESG. Trisha gets into the ramifications of ESG, the lack of leadership in oil and gas, and the serious ramifications that all of this is having for energy security and the knock on effects being felt in the US and around the world with high energy prices and severe geopolitical vulnerability.
