Hedging to Hemorrhaging

The implementation of an effective hedging program can be a tool that helps ensure certainty of cash flow and provide longer reaction time in the event of a market price collapse. On the flip side of the coin, if prices rebound as they did in the first quarter of 2021, producers are left behind while the market surges. With United States E&P Companies projecting $7 billion in hedging losses for the quarter, it will be important to keep a close eye on which companies choose to continue to hedge early for guaranteed revenue protection and those that hold out or hold off to risk the market volatility in hopes of even more revenue.

Colonial Pipeline Cyber Attack

Colonial Pipeline fell victim to a cybersecurity attack last Friday, forcing it to temporarily shut down all pipeline operations until Wednesday. As Colonial, the nation’s largest fuel pipeline transports nearly half of the East Coast’s fuel supply through a system that spans over 5,500 miles between Texas and New Jersey, the days long disruption caused long lines at gas stations in the Southeast due to distribution problems and panic-buying, draining supplies at thousands of gas stations. Since it will take several days for deliveries to return to normal, drivers have been finding gas stations with little or no gas in some Southeast states.

California’s Battle Over Oil

California Senate Bill 467 set out to gradually phase out oil and gas extraction processes that account for most of the state’s petroleum industry but failed to muster the five necessary votes needed to advance in the state legislature. Key points on the bill were to ban enhanced oil recovery techniques, add a 2,500-foot setback clause, and encourage CalGEM to utilize displaced oil and gas workers for the abandonment of old oil and gas sites. But, California Governor Gavin Newsom took matters into his own hands after the bill did not move to the legislature. He has since tasked state agencies to move away from fossil fuels and combat climate change by halting the issuance of hydraulic fracturing permits by 2024 and planning to phase out oil and gas extraction two decades later.
