Welcome to the inaugural PetroNerds Podcast with PetroNerds co-founder Trisha Curtis. This is the first in a series of monthly energy market podcasts with a focus on oil and gas news and events. More than just a summary of headlines, the PetroNerds Podcast takes a deep analytical dive into topical energy market developments via a data-driven discussion of news, economics, companies, assets, well performance, and much more from the oilpatch. Discussions will touch on global energy markets and geopolitical events, US energy news, shale and tight oil + gas market developments, and policy issues.
In this episode, Trisha discusses OPEC and stagnant oil prices, the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) controversy and the implications of a delay for crude movements out of the Williston Basin, the proposed Spectra-Enbridge merger, Apache’s Alpine High discovery in the Permian Basin, EOG’s acquisition of (or “combination” with) Yates Petroleum, and the Powder River Basin.
