Hi Guys Love here in industries up-to-date information. I am currently working in the Permian and love. The continental ball drives everyday working. My way between five rigs keep up the great work also say hi page. The hosts all guests industry leaders. We go way back. Jody he's a safety guy. So jodie listener Hsen podcast. It's relaunching next week in Windows Apple Watches and we'll make sure we let page said. Hello other news stories. Let's get it done so I'm sure most of your quarantine at home and have been for weeks on end. It's been a hell of a few weeks. I'm adapting to learn to work at home as I'm sure everyone else's so I'm sure you guys have been paying very close attention to oil prices. Oil has plunged after the. Iea says demand is in freefall soil. Resume just decline. If the head of the International Energy Agency warmed at global demand. It was a free fall as CORONA VIRUS. Lockdowns retaliate consumption. While major producers pump more futures on he was four or five days ago tumbled seven point seven percent of New York as the. Iea came out with their latest projections. And then Mike Healey President of OTC future said Oils GonNA continue to be stuck in this Rut given the simultaneous supply and demand shots. Stimulus doesn't really help these issues. Just because people have more money in the pockets doesn't mean they're getting in their cars. And so last time I checked. I think demand if it's not already down twenty percent it's projected to be down twenty percents down twenty million barrels per day from the normal one hundred million barrels per day. It it's it's really interesting. I'm having a really really hard time. Get my head around all this. I've crunched the numbers on the virus. I got my head around that and crunching numbers both on the economy and also on the price of oil and for the first time in my lifetime. We have two things going on. Which makes it hard to figure out. What the future's could bring so the first is we have this glut on the market right. Well that's we've had that happen numerous times. That's a pretty easy thing to forecast. Mathematically which by the way big shout to Microsoft stumbled across their power. Bi Tool. It's so much easier. Use some other tools. I was using but to think. That's never happened for usually when you have a glut on the market in the price of crude and gas goes down downstream explode. Because now that's raw feedstock and so they're roughy stocks and cut and so that portal on gas industry explosion profitability. What's happening now? Is the demand for refined products including things like plastic and he's is also going down at the same time. The price of crude and gas is going down so downstream which Newton normally would be booming. Right now. Or would be booming. Soon is hurting just as well because the demand for their products went down because of the global lockdown for the crossovers in. It's really hard. I'm doing a bunch of big data. Analytic stuff and come out in the next week or two probably next week with some predictions about where. I think this things could go. But I've never seen this in my life and it's really hard to figure out where it's going and it's it's not good no matter how you look at it. Yeah completely nuts. You've got experts in the area who just completely threw their hands in the air saying like listen. Nobody really knows where things are going to go in. Everybody always has a predictions especially during downturns. But this is completely different. This is unchartered waters. We'd never been here before. It's hard to say what oil is going to be a week from now let alone. How are we supposed to say what's going to be six months from now? Nobody knows right. That's completely speculative. So word on the street is that Russia is actually wanting to come back to the table though and wanted to new deal which is going to be good news so we're kind of getting conflicting reports over whether they WANNA play ball or not so we'll see what happens but the I don't know if you saw the Smart Energy Department withdrew their tender to fill the strategic petroleum reserve. I didn't get to dive into this to devote dino all the details. I don't know all the details under the big details. They don't have the money they had the money within the use. That money on the stimulus bill. So now the house is GonNa have to vote again. So this first stimulus bill when that's the one that's getting a lot of press because they're busy at twelve hundred bucks plus big five fifty per child or something like that if you make seventy five thousand dollars below last year. That's getting a lot of press but that's the first one jake. They're working on the fourth one. So the second and third already been done now working on the fourth one to come after this first one you can pump money into the economy and it makes it actually makes a substantial difference but not for long period of time. And so what happened is they. Don't have the money to the strategic petroleum reserves which is really interesting because one of things that's going on now. This happens every single time. The price of crew gets cheap. Is People buy it at a discount? Right now it's less than I think. Twenty three dollars a barrel and then they store it somewhere they wait for to get up to thirty dollars a barrel thirty thirty two eligible and they sell it and they make a nice profit. The problem is everybody's doing that right now. So storage is starting to get full. Which means the cost of storage goes up like anything else that supplied man with his short supply storage. The cost goes up which Zenica hurt the margins that the people are anticipating to make when they put the crude back on the market but right now if the US government could find the money and they're working on it are could get the money approved filter Strategic Petroleum Reserve. It would be a really good deal. It would help mitigate some these luke crude prices at least here in the US at the same time it were buying oil for pennies on the dollar to go in Strategic Reserve. So let's hope that the congress can keep agreeing on stuff more less but speaking of that. Did you see some of the stuff that got snuck into the the stimulus? Bill always politics. Never let a good crisis go to waste. Oh God I mean it makes me WANNA cry. I'M NOT GONNA get into it here but there's stuff that got put in that bill so that people come to agreement has no bearing on helping Americans are already people around the world. It was just you know personal gain for those politicians which that should be illegal. This is over hope. Our country stands up votes properly to fix all that stuff. Things like term limits. You know but anyway yeah. That's what happened to structurally reserved. They want us to do it. As a great idea they use the money to put cash in people's pockets so with oil prices hovering in the mid twenties. It's been I don't know what to three weeks now. He's two weeks I completely don't know data's Having been at home for so long but with more than two dozen largest US shell producers already having announced twenty to thirty percent cut some even more than that from their capital budgets. Apache Q. E. P. as a long list pioneer parsley. A lot of these companies are laying down every single one of the rigs as a lot of them are at least laying down half. It seems that more and more as time goes on more press releases are saying that they're absolutely gonNA stop all drilling moving forward so the next articles diving into what does that really mean for the fracture market and so oh fast company's never really recovered from the last downturn thing about that and now they're getting hit again we've already seen a lot of producers go to a lot of service companies and say. Listen our contracts are off doing any more work or if we're going to do work we're GONNA ask for a twenty five percent discount on the work that we've already done I mean how do these guys expect to stay alive. I don't get it. They can't so the some of them actually a lot of were taken at twenty percent hit. This is not. This is not the first time it's happened just to keep their people working no in that the very best break even and most harbor lose money but that's not a long term strategy. That's a gasping for my last breath of air type strategies to try to keep your crews working so it's bad it's bad it's getting bad now to get bad is get worse as we move forward in time. The big question is when is it could come back and to your point Jake. Nobody knows I'm working on it but even I come out with a number is could be guess based upon the data. You'll put my hands on right now. It's not a positive to say about kind of this talking point but honestly there's not much to really come up with here. It's not just the fracking market. Jake so I used to an AI tool scrape the web to look at public companies in their statements to the press. And I bet I found sixty companies that all touch oil gas that are not only gas companies that think companies like Microsoft right that publicly stated their quarterly predictions for revenue from the second quarter of two thousand twenty. They're down great because of what's going on and so that's that ripple effect that's got hurt not just that's hurting the the upstream part of the oil and gas industry but three sooners could start hurting the pipeline the midstream part and Dan. It's already starting to hurt downstream. Now it's GonNa have a trickle effect through all the other companies that touch all. Yes or not only US companies themselves and once again the big question is how much and for how long and we don't know yet. I'm all about I mean I'm sure you've seen on the latest updates from new every expert on the current virus and how this is really having a huge on the world. How long can we really stay quarantined? How long can they? The economy really sustain this. Yeah I got my head around that part so lease here in the US. This is what I think's GonNa Happen. I have a video coming out later to go to detail. But we're almost at the peak of the Bell Curve in the biggest thing is we need the testing the five minute testing. And we need enough that spurs through the country. That's easy for everybody. Get tested Betcha to happen in the next two weeks when that happens we now contest people in the people that are not exposed. That don't have the engines. Could go back to work so now you let the rest of the country back to work. Who Don't have the virus and only Corentin the ones that you do. That should be three weeks now for weeks. That's when that should happen well. At that time we have the hospital beds. Freed up the respirators the drugs that help actually people once they've been exposed to the virus and we're working on a vaccine so I think the whole Seal v Nineteen thing. We're GONNA be okay with it. We're predicting that Jim. I will go back to business as normal and around mid April's hit the peak of the virus here in the US. Now we're always have these pockets of this fires all over the world but we think that we'll that our experts are the world's experts very tested to vaccines both promising. Other clinical trials is could take them about a year. But we're hoping is by the beginning of flu season for twenty twenty one. We'll have a CD nineteen vaccine. This things just gone. That's what we think's GonNa Happen. Now but to your point we have to do something from an economic point of view the entire. Us entirely can't stay shut down because we're we're a recession now. It's a small recession. It's a manmade recession. Because WE SHUT DOWN. We can't have it turned into is when you have that domino effect of where people freak out. They quit spending money. It makes the recession works and then eventually becomes so big that no matter how hard. Us government polls to keep it from dropping down the whole we drop in the whole recession. That's actually my biggest fear is that's going to happen. We're seeing some positive signs but not enough yet for me to tell you quits to go one way or the other suit. Everybody's keep their fingers crossed the virus thing. We'll get through relatively quickly. We think by June I will be back to business normal and I sure hope so I mean I. I've never known more unemployed people in my life on. Just you know people have people are being laid off furloughed and and just not able to go to work and so you know it's visually. It's horrible scary. Because not only do you get laid off. You can't look for work. You're supposed to be quarantined. You have to Pay Your House note in your car note. Electric Bill Feed your family. It is it is. I hope I never experienced again. This is a once in mankind. Perfect Storm Perfect Black Swan type of event that we never go through again so let's continue on the theme of Misery The Dallas Fed did their latest survey which included responses from one hundred sixty one energy firms which took place from March eleventh to March nineteenth. This is a quarterly survey and offers a window into not just economic healthy industry but also the psyche of many oil executives in Texas. So I just want to go through the list and give you some insight into where everyone's heads at so more than half of the executives of their headcount could drop this year with nearly a quarter saying pay would decrease significantly. I've already seen that firsthand from friends. And so I'm trying to get their review quotes by look on domestic oil and gas has never been bleaker and other ones say this weed out the Ponzi guys in the shell plays a lot of capital distrust occurring the service industry for fracking will implode number one said banks are squeezing the MP sector including our company in the in demanding. We quit drilling to pay down our debt. Even though we are in compliance with terms of our cut agreement we will likely shutdowns early next month. The paint early termination penalty to our re contractor in excess hedges to pay down debt. We are in survival mode now. Nice when said we're planning for a soft twenty twenty soft would be great now? We are now expected in almost total. Stop and business in the coming weeks and months. Nice Win said I'm scared in my opinion tastes. Road Commission should institute pro-russian as we had in nineteen fifty s and early nineteen sixties and. That is something that's on the table. Currently being talked about the next one said looking to be a bloodbath for most firms. Yup would agree on the next one. Said I'm shutting everything I can and cutting general administrative expenses to minimal levels to try to ride out the storm. Those who are in debt will not survive and over this last one here. I do not believe the energy industry. Ex- except with respect to the largest producers has the capital liquidity and reserved to survive a price collapse of the death in time extent that will be experienced not. It's not I will say one thing had quite a few people reach out to me. Talk to me about how this is Russian Saudi Arabia trying to put the fractures out of business. That's not what happened in two thousand fourteen. That's not what's going on here. You have to remember. You can bankrupt a company but you can't Bakr Brock. The hydrocarbons are there and if prices go back up even if you know. A lot of operators get destroyed somebody once it makes. Fiscal sense will get some capital and go do it again so this is something but just a between Russian Saudi Arabia. That we're playing casualties right now. It is interesting though. Jake that Ryan sit in the former railroad. Commissioner is going to the OPEC meeting June where they all are going to try to agree upon production numbers for the first time ever the state of Texas his equal to Russian OPEC in those discussions that that makes me feel good. I actually know Ryan's a good guy if anybody can help. Broker a deal that benefits the world. It's him so the nice article is actually outdated by now. Maybe it's still true so this one I put in here says Russia's Russia says oil is on the agenda for the g twenty call which is GonNa be. I think in the end of April early. May some time but now like I said it seems like Russia wants to come back to the table and discussing new deal yard impression cuts. So that's kind of good news for everybody Sir Stanley edge of your seat. Let's see what happens with that. And then that's when next articles Chevron hits the brakes on Permian cutting eight billion dollars and Catholics across the company and the reason that such a big deal to the companies that have the capital expertise and reach to keep the Shil market alive in the US is Chevron and Exxon and Chevron cutting eight billion dollars which of course they are. I mean you know you would expect them to do this. It is GONNA be interesting. You know they don't have any debt. They have a lot of cash. This cut eight billion dollars actually increase their cash because they were expecting to spend that money this year. So I would not be surprised if we see both Chevron Exxon multiple major acquisitions the next twelve months by all this but just the fact that they're cutting capital. Money just tells you how bad it really is and last article today. I'm sure he will appeal to this. Oxy Is adding to cut. They're cutting executive compensation they're cutting headcount down and I'm sure you know as we've talked about Carl. Icahn has been in a little bit of restraining a proxy war with oxy he had purchased it. We're just a good bit of oxy Kimber. Exactly with the number was about a while back. He sold off. Eighty percent of that their market cap is completely just tanked and things one fifth of what it used to be before they acquired a Anadarko and now he essentially got it for a fraction of the cost. And so I think he's up to nine point nine percent so he owns quite a bit of oxy and so Steven Chason was the former. Ceo of oxy. So now he is actually executive chairman of the board now and then call icon was actually put in three independent directors of his own. Andrew Lincoln Nicholas Grazziano and Margarito Palau Hernandez. I have no clue who they are. But it seems they've they've reached some kind of resolution with icon and that was also because I think they also kind of forced his hand a little bit. Hopefully he's happy with this deal here. But they taste poison pill to where if somebody was acquiring more than I think. Fifteen percent of the company at automatically sort of diluting shareholders rapidly and yet in all the details of that to be also the this turn into soap opera. You know so proper. Yeah if you're watching the soap operas have more stuff happened in thirty minutes and happens in your tire. Lifetime this is what's with Oxy Dorka. I mean this is just one story after another after another. It's interesting to see if icons now going to work with the board to try to stabilize the bleeding ship of oxy Darko. Or if this is just another step in him gaining control so you do what he wants. I don't know he has a call me an astronaut opinion. But this is this is just like a unfolding soap opera of intrigue and espionage and somebody's dead relative really wasn't dead. They Ran Cohen. They came back and all within a half hour. So we're definitely keep an eye on this because this has been an interesting story from day one. It just gets better better. I guys with the stories for this week Mark Russell during the giveaway right. Of course. Still doing a giveaway. This things become a crazy. It's actually had a semi reach out to me just two or three days ago and it touched my heart. They go mark. It's unfortunate.
