There Will Be Blood – Gov’t Efforts To Spur Energy Production Lack Long-term Incentives Amid Sector Push Downstream

Key Points:

  • Government pressure on the traditional energy sector to boost production contradicts many of its long-term initiatives to push consumers away from these products. We flag our research, Does DC Understand Economics – Energy Proposals Suggest No.
  • We highlight pertinent energy, chemical, and other corporate updates (e.g., Westlake, ExxonMobil, Dow, Epsilyte, OMV, Borealis, OCI, LG Chem, BP, Wood, and others).
  • We discuss ESG items ranging from a view of US ethanol price and profit trends to issues facing Europe’s move to boost its battery production. We flag our latest ESG weekly titled, Environmental “Affirmative Action” Could Cause More Problems.
  • We discuss numerous other pertinent chemical sector items in this report.
