A Sober Look At The Energy Transition

Politicians, climate activists, and media outlets are claiming that an “energy transition” is underway and that one day soon, our economy will be fueled solely by renewable sources like wind and solar. Well-funded advocacy groups are pushing regulations to ban natural gas and “electrify everything,” including our cars and trucks. In this talk, author, podcaster, and film producer Robert Bryce will deliver a sober look at the energy transition. He will discuss the labor, land use, and geo-political barriers to these all-renewable schemes and explain why energy transitions occur over decades, not years. He will show why hydrocarbons will continue powering our economy for decades to come and provide ideas and numbers that will help industry leaders prepare for the future.


Thomas Pronold is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Dallas Chapter SIPES Meeting @ Prestonwood Country Club
Sep 19 @ 11:30 am

Date: Tuesday, September 19, 2023

Place: Prestonwood Country Club – 15909 Preston Road, Dallas, TX 75248

Time: 11:30 A.M. (dining at 11:45 A.M.)

Topic: A New Economic Yardstick for Today’s Late-life Production: Holdback
Low-rate, late-life producers figure prominently in the portfolios of most oil companies, but they also create a unique financial trap for their owners. Decades of delayed plugging has accumulated liabilities while production and cash flow have tapered down. Combined these make it possible for cash-flowing properties with a positive present value to be net liability instead of an asset. This presentation explains the unexpected, the dangers it creates, and how to foresee the trap.
