"He also serves on the board of the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association Mark Miller welcome to discover. Lafayette thank you Jan. And May I say welcome for the second time I've taping us in my home study and you your good friend from our church. Asbury United Methodist. And you're also a good front for learning with me as I'm adjusting to the the Cova nineteen pandemic you know in taping this show at home so thank you. Well I guess so you know I wanted to get you on the show. Mark it really. I was I guess inspired by and also frightened by an article. You sent me About the oil collapse. That was written a few days ago. And I thought it'd be timely for us to talk about the oil and gas business not only in Louisiana but worldwide. So before we start that. Would you please give us your background? I know you've got thirty years of experience and you moved here after college if you could talk about that. I sure I moved down here and went to work in the oil business. And nineteen eighty eighty one and have been working as a landman ever since nineteen eighty one at Become a home and I love it and while I travel back and forth. This is definitely my home right. So what brought you till Louisiana though to begin wet well I wanted to get into business? I had some friends in the oil and gas business and they were told me that it was exciting and as a young person there was a world of opportunity. And that's why I came right so you moved here right out of college and I do have to point out that I moved here in. Nineteen eighty-three after law school and everything was really good. And then within just a short time we had a huge crash in the oil business in Louisiana and you survived that nineteen eighty. Six was a tough time. My partner showing badly myself really hunkered down and we would play little games with each other such as I would buy lunch one day. I'll he would my lunch the next day out so we can tell our to our wives. We didn't buy lunch every day. But we We managed to to get through it. It was a tough time price. Oil fell drastically down eight dollars a barrel but it but it did rebound and we managed to stay in the business did an earlier podcast early in. The show's tenure. With Charlie Goodson of Charlie. Jeez and he told me how he and Kim Veron would charged for launch with the price of a barrel of oil was. I remember those days and we're laughing about it but you know they were tough times and you. You made it and that's kind of indicative of our whole community. I think in South Louisiana and Acadia. We have a wildcatter mentality and people keep on going even when the going tough. But we're really facing tough times today. Aren't we well? There's no question? This is a serious time. An issue for the oil and gas industry especially a K. Deanna Brought on by some other factors besides this crooner nineteen virus ride It seems like just a couple of months ago when people would speak about problems. Oil and gas industry had they were talking about the legacy lawsuits and policy related. Things and I know that seems like a long time ago but would touch on out of your thoughts about Louisiana in. What are you know what our hopes for the future once we get through this if we continue with the current policies? You know so. I was speaking with a gentleman. Yesterday's chairman of Independent Oil Company. And we were talking but he's just been involved in a legacy lawsuit and he was musing on the phone. Saying you know I have a chance to work in Texas or Oklahoma and this was prior to see nineteen. Of course he said but I I would not choose to come back to Louisiana with the coastal lawsuits. And so that's part of the problem. Our new business in the last few years has declined because people were afraid to come here and now coupled with this pandemic our business. What's left of? It's getting squeezed from all sides. And you've chosen to stay here and now you tell me that most of your work and your investments are in this area if you could expand on that. My career has been primarily in the Gulf coast area in production. I have is a fifty mile radius from Lafayette. And that's where I I've made my living and continue to do so right now. It seems that there's no demand for fossil fuels and I wanna read a sentence from the article you sent me and I want to quote the author. It's Daniel Uragan. Who wrote in foreign affairs in this article that I referenced that she sent me? But he's saying that The price war with producing nations battling for market share has become lodged in the larger crisis of the novel current virus pandemic and we'll be the worst recession since World War. Two the resulting collapse in demand will be bigger than any recorded since oil became a global commodity commodity. Oil prices are already down two thirds since the beginning of two thousand twenty and still falling. How can that be so fast? It is like I said we in Acadian Louisiana. We already had legacy hanging over us. And then the price of oil has continued to collapse. both the Saudis and the Russians are taking advantage of the fact that they would like to increase their market share not some of the shale producers out of being able to do what they do so well making us energy independent and providing us with the platform well with the slide in oil prices show plays or not economical at anything below forty five dollars a barrel or forty two dollars a barrel depending on where it is so companies are taking breath and saying. Can we drill at these prices or do we not do anything to we? Just put it on the shelf right now and depending on where you drill. I guess what price of oil has to bring varies to make you profitable if you can touch on that. It's true I mean the also around ten dollars a barrel in the Permian. Some people are still able to make money eight dollars in the box and some people are still make money. Because of their long term term investment in resources they put out there lower lease operating costs ins on their infrastructure. But I think it's fair to say that everybody is hurting because of these prices and the real problem is you and I have discussed before is that we got so much oil on the market and no place to send it for sale. It's stuck and stranded in We're calling in a contraction situation Demand contraction but in fact. It's just demand contraction an oversupply so. I didn't realize until I read this article by Yorgen that there was an OPEC. Plus if I'm pronouncing that right I knew about OPEC nations getting together to you. Know kind of as as mutually beneficial to look at the output that each country will commit to but this has fallen apart to right this second. Opec. Plus Ev rings our part. Absolutely everybody's trying to figure out what to do. In the midst of this crisis and the the OPEC countries that were pretty strategically aligned. For many many years fell apart Back in two thousand fourteen and have had trouble getting back together so then they realigned and now they're fractionation because nobody really understands what to do and of course Saudis. The leader wow. They are heavily dependent on oil and gas. Obviously that's what they do and and their economies addicted to it their social their social programs are very expensive and when they sold well lower prices. They're not able to fund those programs for their people. So I'm sure they're getting pushback back. But they are the swing. The swing country in terms of they have more flexibility to ramp up the production. Two million barrels a day unlike any other country in the world and I'm sure the Saudis want to be on good terms with both Russia and the US attorney. Yeah Yeah so in that same article. What really got me was. It's possible that a barrel of oil could be valued at zero. And that's because of the glut that's on the market and the declining storage capacity. Now what what's that about well in in that? Think about this. You Go and you spend your capital dollars. You get together. You drill an oil. Well it successful. It's producing it's creating revenue for not just the company that's producing it but also the landowners because they get their share the royalty from the oil and gas lease it matriculated down to many many people in.

"WGN y. He's holding the line for America. Buck Sexton is back. The five warmest years have been the last five years, and this is not from some conspiracy group or anything like this. This is from NASA and Noah these are government organizations tasked with keeping track of this. I think we all disappeared. Like, this the earth would go back and just before whatever cyclotron, whatever if it's warm if it's cold, I think it just goes back to doing it stink. But we all live here. Yeah. Human beings are the problem. You see? They always revert back to this at the root. There's a kind of hatred of humanity. That is animating a lot of this climate change alarmism. We are the problem the presence of human beings on this planet. Despoilers it, you know, we're the we're the issue here, and we need to change radically because of all the bad stuff that we do. I take a different view, which is that the planet exists for us. We are the only sentient beings on the planet. The planet is here to support us, and we should use it for our advantage. Now that doesn't mean that the river should be flowing with toxic waste, but it does mean that we should use the planet. It is here for us. But the left is just just wacko on this stuff. They really are. You know, this this idea that the five warmest years on record last five years, and this is all over. I think a one point four degree warming last year as compared to the year before. Yeah. One point four degrees higher than the average in the twentieth century. They are they are raising the alarm about the end of humanity and the extinction of the human race because of a one point four degree change in average temperature compared to the last hundred years the earth is a few billion years old. You know, however, many billions it is. We only have temperature readings for the last hundred years. This would be like looking at a beach and looking at one grain of sand and saying well what I can tell you about every other grain of sand is that this one is this size. And so all the other ones have to be the same size. No, that's not true. You're looking at a very very very small data sample and drawing enormous conclusions from it. I mean, just making vast over simplification that what you can learn from the data. But I would note that is not the only one who finds this climate alarmism approach to be the way she wants to go Pelosi also gets in on this play club eight. Yesterday is mentioned I pointed this committee on climate. This select committee will have a leading role in taking testimony building current information on solutions to the climate crisis. There's all kinds of ideas coming fault. We welcome all them as they highlight the importance of this existential threat to the planet. It's a national security issue when it comes to preventing climate instability. It's an economic and jobs jobs jobs issue of make good paying jobs making America keeping America preeminent and green technologies in the world. And it is in my view, moral responsibility. If you believe as to why that this planet is God's creation, and we have a moral responsibility. Because of it. Just blather piled on top of claptrap. Laid atop more blather. Wow. Pelosi existential threat to the planet. I don't know how anybody really believes this. Although I do think that you have a a kind of unholy alliance here between the very cynical power-hungry left that realizes that. Once you buy into this constructors of of climate as possibly going to end humanity that this is an existential issue that that all human life is going to end unless you put them in power. They're willing to just go along with it. But you also do have. Sizable contingent of the democrat usually democrat atheist left as well. They really by. Although I have seen more and more of these left wing Christian types who are coming forward saying the climate change is an climate change is a Christian issue. Like Jesus wants you to take a bicycle to work and not drive a car. I I do hear the social Justice Christian left say this stuff. And and I get very frustrated the pope the pope said stuff about climate change, which what the heck is he doing? He's got bigger problems than we saw some news today about more more, sex abuse and more Carol stuff going on the Catholic church. But that's a conversation for another time. Pelosi says this is an existential threat. I don't think she believes that at all. Not one bit. But it plays well to her looney left wing base. And it also opens the door to allow Democrats to try to regain the moral high ground after a month where they've been pushing socialism, which always remember is based on the state seizing your property under threat of force and giving it to other people and infanticide which as much as people can try to tell me that that is not what they were supporting that's not what northern was supporting. That's not what TRAN in Virginia was supporting. No, it was what they were. We can we can listen we can read we can here. We know that is what they were supporting, and it just shows you the deep moral abyss that the Democratic Party democrat party has just fallen into but has embraced now. There's a kind of pride in their inhumanity and in the sinfulness of many of their policies and much of their decision making. That should be unsettling to to anybody paying attention. But I said we would take some calls. So Chris in Virginia. Welcome my friend. Yes. Yes, you're on the radio. I was just going to say. I referring to everything is fossil fuel. I think that was fairly to take the wind out of their sales or says, I prefer column hydrocarbons. I work in aviation industry, and we're actually moving away from standard aircraft, you'll to swift fuel which is in the future. It's not here yet. But it's renewable it's made from my waste, etc. Plus. Hydrates in the in the theater that come up and blend. More. The earth's crust are also hydrocarbons it's not necessarily fossil fuel. Okay. Is that it? Just trying to you know, they they keep wanting to say fossil fuel fossil-fuel fossil fuel only have a limited amount. But there is more. I mean, it's being generated and it's being made naturally and man-made. It's not like we're gonna run out anytime soon. I think they're pointing is fossil fuel is Canada, the straw, man argument. All righty. Thanks for calling in, my friend. Yeah. Fossil fuels are type of of hydrocarbon. So. Yeah. Hydrocarbon is a broader categorization. But this then brings me to any of you who are looking for a book to read if you if you care about, and it's it's a great. It's a history, and it's a really well written book, but Daniel Uragans the prize is a history of the oil industry. But a great book I'm actually about to start reading a book on the history of salt. So I I find these things to be very I read a book on the history of chocolate. I like to learn about these things, but the prize is a is a fantastic book. One thing you learn from the history of hydrocarbons, which includes fossil fuels is that we are not we are naturally decarbonising in our fuel usage. So you look at what they would call dirtier more CO two, but but heavier burning and less efficient fuel sources. Okay. Wood-burning and you go to at one point. Whale. Oil was really the preferred fuel for lighting and for lamps and things obviously killing Awale to get to its fat is not a particularly efficient way to do things. And it's gonna run out fast. It can be very expensive. But now, we moved on to coal, and then you had the industrial revolution. Largely powered by coal. Right. The industrial revolution. Brought to you by coal power. And then from coal we moved to all and gasoline and then from gasoline, we have moved to increasingly toward natural gas. And or caller just brought up some of the new fuels that are based on renewable technology. I'm not opposed. This is another place where the argument kind of breaks down on the left doesn't deal with what's really happening. I am not opposed to. Solar energy. I'm not opposed to although as I like to say the wind turbines. There are cuisinart for migratory foul. You know, they just get chopped up into little pieces. It's really bad. Actually kills a lot of birds those big wind turbines or killing birds all over the all over the place. So for people that are big stewards of the environment. You don't necessarily want to shred all of our bald eagles with these stupid wind turbines. But those are especially when you get into solar and the grid and the storage technology for it. If those technologies were there, we would already be using it in much larger numbers that Okaz corteges little green energy debacle the green new deal, which it it goes so far beyond the environment and energy to it's you know, we want this. We want that. And throw this other thing in and social Justice. But then it doesn't it doesn't make mention of nuclear power, which is the cleanest by far the most on an efficiency basis nuclear power really blows everything else away. But the left gets very scared about that all they'll be meltdowns and things things will happen nuclear waste. It's it's pretty amazing that they don't deal with that. And in fact, the move in Europe away from nuclear power has resulted in a much higher energy costs. And as you know gasoline, there is much more expensive than it is here, but these processes are naturally occurring through technology. And and this is what we are Dc. The world is decarbonising our energy sources that is happening, and it has been happening for over one hundred years. So when people do these projections for what our fossil fuel use are sorry hydrocarbon usage is going to be for the next fifty years. They don't know because in five years there'll be technologies that are more efficient. We have now the problem comes with the central planning aspect of this industries and different applications of the technologies that we have will adopt them when they make sense. They will adopt them when they are cost effective. That's going and the people that are doing the RND the research and development on this are moving as fast as they can based upon what the market will bear. And what they can figure out in terms of the science. But it's going to happen. I mean, I do believe that by the next century. We probably will have moved largely beyond hydrocarbons, but you try to make us move at five x or ten x the speed of that decarbonisation process. This is where the Mao great leap forward lesson of history become so relevant. Look at China's success with its economy massive rise in living standards for people. But that would have happened without deciding to. Depopulate the rural areas move everybody into cities and have a famine were sixty million people died you didn't need to suffer through that to get to this point of rapid industrialization. This was all pushed through central planning. Central planning has a storied legacy and history of massive catastrophic failure, and that is one of the biggest lessons of history of the twentieth century. I don't think causing Cortez even knows that. And I really mean that I don't think if you asked her what are the great failures of central planning the twentieth century, which even be able to come up with a lot of the Soviet Union or communist, China or go down the list. Wasn't a failure of central planning failure of the implementation of central planning. And us the argument that we had thought perhaps we defeated in the early nineteen nineties is back in full force. Courtesy of a twenty eight year old former bartender from New York City. We will be right back. Take me.

Like Jesus wants you to take a bicycle the work and not drive a car. I do hear the social Justice Christian left say this stuff, and I get very frustrated and the pope the pope said stuff about climate change, which what the heck is he doing? He's got bigger problems.

You'll to slip you'll which is in the future. It's not here yet. But it's renewable it's made from my waist, etc. Plus. Hydrates in the in the CEA to that come up and blend below the first crashed are also hydrocarbons. It's not necessarily fossil fuel. Okay. Is that it? And. Yeah, just trying to you know, they they keep wanna take fuel fossil-fuel fossil fuel. And we only have a limited amount. But there is more. I mean, it's being generated as being made naturally manmade. It's not like we're gonna let out anytime soon. I think they're pointing as fossil fuel is Canada the straw, man arguments. All righty. Thanks for calling in, my friend. Yeah. Fossil fuels are type of of hydrocarbon. So. Yeah. Hydrocarbon is a broader categorization. But this then brings me any of you who are looking for a book to read if you if you care about, and it's a great it's a history, and it's a really well written book, but Daniel Uragans the prize is a history of the oil industry. But a great book I'm actually about to start reading a book on the history of salt. So I find these things to be very I read a book years ago in the history of chocolate. I liked to learn about these things, but the prize is a is a fantastic book. But one thing you learn from the history of hydrocarbons, which includes fossil fuels is that we are not we are naturally decarbonising in our fuel usage. So you look at what they would call dirtier more CO two, but but heavier birding and less efficient fuel sources. Okay. Wood-burning? And you go to one point it was whale. Oil was really the preferred fuel for for lighting and for lamps and things obviously killing Awale to get to its fat is not a particularly efficient way to do things. And it's going to run out fast. It can be very expensive. But then we moved on to coal, and then you had the industrial revolution. Largely powered by coal, right? The industrial revolution. Brought to you by coal power. And then from coal we moved to oil and gasoline and then from gasoline, we have moved to increasingly toward natural gas, and our caller brought up some of the new fuels that are based on renewable technology. I'm not opposed. This is another place where the argument kind of breaks down on the left doesn't deal with what's really happening. I am not opposed to. Solar energy. I'm not opposed to although as I like to say the wind turbines. They are cuisinart for migratory foul. You know, they just get chopped up into little pieces. It's really bad. Actually kills a lot of birds those big wind turbines or killing birds all over the all over the place. So for people that are big stewards of the environment. You know, you don't necessarily want to shred all of our bald eagles with these stupid wind turbines. But those are especially when you get into solar and the grid and the storage technology for it. If those technologies were there, we would already be using it in much larger numbers that Okaz. You Cortesi is little green energy debacle the green new deal, which it goes so far beyond the environment and energy to it's you know, we want this. We want that. And throw this other thing in and social Justice. But then it doesn't it doesn't make mention of nuclear power, which is the cleanest, and by far the most on an efficiency basis nuclear power really blows everything else away. But the left gets very scared about that all they'll be meltdowns and things things will. A nuclear waste. It's it's pretty amazing that they don't deal with that. And in fact, the move in Europe away from nuclear power has resulted in much higher energy costs. And as you know, gasoline, there's much more expensive than it is here. But these processes are naturally occurring through technology. And and this is what we are the world is decarbonising our energy sources that is happening, and it has been happening for over one hundred years. So when people do these projections for what our fossil fuel use are sorry hydrocarbon usage is going to be for the next fifty years. They don't know because in five years there'll be technologies that are more efficient. What we have. Now. The problem comes with the central planning aspect of this industries and different applications of the technologies that we have we'll adopt them when they make sense. They will adopt them when they are cost effective. That's going and the people that are doing the RND the research and development on this are moving as fast as they can based upon what the market will bear. And what they can figure out in terms of the science. But it's going to happen. I mean, I do believe that by the next century. We probably will have moved largely beyond hydrocarbons. But to try to make us move at five x or ten x speed of that decarbonisation process. This is where the Mao great leap forward lesson of history become so relevant. Look at China's success with its economy massive rise in living standards for people. But that would have happened without deciding to. Depopulate the rural areas move everybody into cities and have a famine we're sixty million people died you didn't need to suffer through that to get to this point of rapid industrialization. This was all pushed through central planning. Central planning has a storied legacy and history of massive and catastrophic failure, and that is one of the biggest lessons of history of the twentieth century. I don't think of causing Cortez even knows that. And I really mean that I don't think if you asked her what are the great failures of central planning the twentieth century, which even be able to come up with the show Viet union or communist, China or go down the list. Oh, wasn't a failure of central planning to failure. Of the implementation of central planning. And the argument that we had thought perhaps we defeated. In the early nineteen nineties is back in full force. Courtesy of a twenty eight year old former bartender from New York City. We will be right back..
