RP Weekly Recap | September 7 – 11

Summary – Winning at All Costs

The results of the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election could have dramatic effects on the oil and gas industry. Presidential Nominee Joe Biden plans to execute a more aggressive energy policy, pushing for a carbon free future that includes a plan to ban new oil and gas leasing on public lands and waters as well as a ban on hydraulic fracturing. Up until recently, President Donald Trump planned to continue his carbon leading energy policy and push for domestic energy independence. He planned to open new lands and waters to oil and gas development while working towards a carbon-neutral future with less aggressive and jolting environmental regulations. That policy changed in a dramatic way on Tuesday when President Trump expanded a drilling moratorium for Florida’s, South Carolina’s, and Georgia’s coast, completely altering the direction of his energy policy. This comes just one day after Joe Bieden told supporters in Pennsylvania he will not be banning frac’ing. With just two months from the November elections, candidates are doing everything they can to win at all costs. Check out this story and more in this week’s recap of all things happening in oil and gas!

  • This week’s periodical highlights a growing distaste for the oil industry among potential young employees that when combined with the economic crisis of the pandemic, is making it difficult to attract the talent of the future. The growing perception problem of hydrocarbon based energy is causing young and experienced individuals alike to leave the industry in pursuit of different careers. If oil and gas companies don’t start taking perception related issues seriously, they will find themselves in a experience vacuum that will stagnate any progress into the future.
