Oil and Gas Necessary Long-Term – The Sector Needs Friends

  • We continue to argue that decarbonized fossil fuels will play a critical role in the energy transition – credible recent analysis on climate change aligns with our view.
  • Even as global warming narratives become bleaker, energy security and affordability have now taken a front seat, and no government can ignore inflation.
  • But oil and gas companies face some single-minded shareholders, including some premature break-up activists, and are now suggesting policy vs. waiting.
  • We look at plastic waste and the scale of the challenge/opportunity in the US, but for more than just recycling – packagers still need to make changes.
  • We flag rising carbon capture activity despite no improvement in incentives (in the US), discuss hydrogen and renewable fuels, and map other ESG findings.
