Nii Ahele Nunoo | Senior Associate at KPMG on Energy Crüe

Nii joins me at the Petroleum Club of Houston where we discuss his upbringing in Africa and pursuing his electrical engineer degree brought him to the US. After various jobs throughout the states, he found himself at NOV in Conroe, Texas. We discuss his role there, as well as what motivated him to pursue a higher education. We discuss his current role and how he loves identifying problems and challenges, creating solutions for those issues, and providing support for O&G companies throughout the states. Him and his “A-team” all have O&G backgrounds which allow them to be as effective as possible, while not taking any credit for the value they bring.

Demand, Delta, Chinese Power, and Xcel | Petronerds Podcast

In Episode 23, recorded July 26, 2021, Trisha Curtis and Ethan Bellamy bounce around global issues covering Norway, China, the US, and OPEC. Trisha continues to see the $65 to $75 price band for WTI Crude oil as most likely. Near month futures prices at the time of the podcast were $72 oil and $4 gas, both healthy figures for an industry that keeps adding rigs and frac spreads w-o-w. Looking ahead, the US will digest the end of the eviction moratorium and the lapse of COVID benefits, which should fill out the workforce. The Delta variant remains a wildcard for global macro. Ethan tries to put some guardrails around Trisha’s discussions of the global economy, International Energy Agency figures, electricity prices in the US, and China’s power use, commitments to climate change, and intricacies of policy making and outcomes.

DUG Permian Recap and Oil Price Slide | Petronerds Podcast

In Episode 22, recorded July 19, 2021, Trisha Curtis and Ethan Bellamy discuss crude oil prices and the backslide to $66 as the market digests two negatives: the increased baseline allocation to the United Arab Emirates within OPEC and fears of the delta variant of COVID-19 reducing demand. Trisha sees WTI crude as appropriately priced in a band of $65 to $75, while Ethan sees further short run weakness in oil to $63 for the August contract, but is more bullish on natural gas to $3.70 week on week on summer heating demand. Trisha provided some thoughts on DUG Permian & Eagle Ford, where she spoke last week. The mood was bullish 2014, which she finds a bit too optimistic given OPEC spare capacity. Producers are bulled up, which may not be helpful for US supply, which should be growing and suppressing price.
