"one hundred million tons" Discussed on Oil and Gas This Week Podcast

"Complete control. Hey good afternoon from whiskey cake in. Houston this jason here from ibm so guys. I think these blocks forgot who pay the bills frontier. We've taken over just for this week unless we really do a bad job by be back again. So hey guys. I brought a higgins. So did they brought six t members with me from ibm discordant through sunday. The door run the table of afternoon. The jerry hey jay. How're you doing. Good jim hello jason. Hello don hey brian. Hey jas to whiskey. Neil going man debate like me. That i'm tracy adoption expo. Hello hello hello. How's everyone doing today. Whiskey cake chew softly cubby bada. I got a big burger my belly. You've got a big valley okay. An old fashioned on the brain washing the brain whiskey that anyone forget what actually had to do a podcast. Let's right one hundred percent. That's today so listen. Let's get into the to actually before we get into the news. This is the ibm team would all based in houston as maybe some people. Strange accents right. Brian. that's right and i'm not one of them. That's for sure. I think you all the way to budapest bucharest. It really depends on where you're from jas because you know if you've really from texas it doesn't really matter so what we've done this weakest. We've taken over from page and mark and we thought we'd give it a bit of an it. Ibm see where we go. It's all guys. Why don't we hit the news to kick off the big stories. The biggest foreign hostility. The shale pyramids the sail off. Shell to the pair. Men to conoco phillips. That's a surprise. So you being the shell the shell it. Okay upon and for me. That's the biggest one. I think we can agree. That's maybe the biggest. This just came out yesterday the game yesterday. So it's a big old deal. Nine point five billion. The personalities clinical phillips. It's what's so fascinating about it is. It's just all the undertones of the politics behind it talk about the carbon emission reduction agenda that shale is pushing the moment for for reasons that are legal as well as say they're gonna push and so the real interesting thing is here whether this will be trained for shale only for shale mvp for shale everyone else but at the moment what we're seeing is a beffa strange little mix here the way this was released. That was pretty funny because they were talking about the fact that shale claim that they were selling a good price giving money back to the shareholders. Too it's good for shareholders. Seven billion of fat was going back to shareholders and allows them to meet their carbon credits. The targets have been set by the the netherlands government on the flipside. Conaco phillips argued. This was great for shareholders. Cerebal to give money back and able to meet the baby. So i called me. They were also just say that they were able to raise their emission. Reduction targets right. So how much of this is sue. Difficult to unpick the amount of spin going on here because it seems to be a little bit unusual having said that on it i understand why book companies have done. What they've done. It makes perfect saints so hang out. Let's pick up on that trade with the congressional meetings coming up and all the ceos of the super majors been called in front of congress in october. It might not just be definitely. I think this could be something that we see throughout everywhere right and does that mean that we start to see a degradation of some of the volume of some of these high carbon emissions assets because green needs to be the way people need to go. Are they going to find different ways to meet those targets. Whatever targets are set by the values start to degrade as you point out. Neil then perhaps companies like chevron that are sitting on a pile of cash not investing right. Now we're going to wait back in the wings and make some purchases on the come on. What do you think jim. Yeah well interesting point on that. Jerry is just this week. Sharman announced their significantly increasing their budget around sustainability. Ten billion dollars to twenty twenty-eight really focusing on three areas renewable fuels hydrogen production finally carbon capture yourself fair amount of money flowing in from that angle. Jim did they talk at all about partnering with exxon with the carbon capture hub. They've got going in houston which meant to capture one hundred million tons per co two. Which is i don't know they've got like five thousand years capacity and that the storage vault they're building and it will the store something like one hundred and thirty two years of us emissions over the history of the country. Just there any partnership plans. You think they're on the carbon capture it off to thanks so given the size of that one just said when you if they are. They haven't told me. What's your view of conaco buying. Shell any any views of surprise surprise in the upstream estimate you know upstream to me. i think. basically if we look at all the independence and how they've produced in commun- full ten fifteen years they've always had been approached going about this than the super majors. Try to capitalize on that coming in. But they haven't quite gotten formula right because of all the overhead so makes perfect sense to me true. There's a win win for both going to say i. I was just going to say you know. The industry's obviously get an infinitely complex right where these companies are having to diversify themselves into into sustainable or green solutions. But i think at the same time. We're seeing a lot of consolidation and specialization. Right because of volatility volatility of energy prices. You really need to be good at what you're at. I think if you're still in the fossil fuel space. And i think we're seeing a lot of these. We're gonna see a lot of these. Us land assets consolidate insert to be run more factory. Like you know may a lot more censored a lot more integrated from an operational perspective. Because it's going to be about scale and margin and a ton of margin preempt. It is a good point. Brad because the more of the it was that brad. I'm sorry people the accent. Excuse me sorry bryan. Bryan woodward their lead account part of her slumber j. You guys could see the difference between brad and brian well. It was a good point on the scale out especially around data. Because there's a lot more federation possible if you start aggregating those assets and if you can bring all that data together you can do a little bit better. Forecasting a little bit better drawdown of you know the capacities wells and i think there was another article about the centralization of some of the equipment and software that baker was doing with lit is lit or light. I don't know how to pronounce it. A. l. y. Tt which if you think about. It enable much better use of the data. You're getting out of the out of the wellborn reservoirs. And then if you don't have that people inside of that you can save a lot of money. So that kind of scale becomes a lot more. We consolidate his assets. Yeah for sure. And i think obviously the subsurface digital play has been mature. You know operating environment for for years but i think. Now it's all about you know. How do you increase production. And how do you optimize your assets and you know. Obviously i support summer on this team and you know starting what year and a half two years ago you know the the all the whole push inside is digital and how you digitally enable a sensor driven field an integrated operations and better efficiency and better intelligence on i mean. I think we're getting to the point. This industry where we're we're literally got. You're you're gonna start to see these guys running like very lean factory operations because you cannot survive in the market anymore now under under.

"Scientists believe they can take neutron stars through the gravitational waves they generate as they spin gravitational waves ripples in the fabric of space time caused by moving mass until now the only be detected by massive collisions involving some of the densest objects in the universe things like black holes and neutron stars however new research by scientists with the australian national university said if gravitational astrophysics as well as the lie gallon virga laser into from the gravitational wave observatories suggests that slide regularities on the surface fast spinning neutron stars only millimeters high could still be enough to generate a faint hum which could be picked up by gravitational wave observatory if successful it would be the first detection of gravitational wave event that did involve the collision of massive objects like black holes utahns dies uterus. Stars are the densest objects in the universe other than black holes in fact just a sugar cube sized piece of neutron style material would way more than one hundred million tonnes as we mentioned earlier in the show they created in the explosive deaths of stars foul massive than the sun when they stars run out of the nuclear fuel that keeps them shining the balancing act between gravity crushing the style down towards the center and nuclear and jeep pushing our woods ends and gravity winds causing the static collapse on itself in a core collapse supernova as the massive the entire style crashes down onto the stellar core. The immense gravitational collapse is enough to break through. What's known as electron degeneracy. It's a quantum mechanical effect arising from the exclusion principle and it prevents more than one firm on such as electron from being the same minimum energy level. Quantum state at the same time instead allows even further collapse crushing the negatively charged electrons and positively charged together to form neutrons hence the stars name. You can almost imagine as little quacks changing inside county. Utahns stars are thought to be just a few dozen or so kilometers wide with masses containing between one point four and somewhere around two point. Two two point four times that of the sun scientists don't really know much about them. publicized to be composed of maybe a quack lou plasma core surrounded by neutron proton fermi fluid and fermi gas all encased in a rigid outer shell composed of is electrons and the fluid in across of electrons neutrons and atomic nuclei magnetic poles of neutron stars generate offline g beams which are thought to emanate from neither surface if a rotating neutron star spin axis isn't lined up precisely with its magnetic poles stop reduces in energy beam which will sweep across the cosmos like lantau speaking and that neutron stars then referred to as a pulsa you tron stats with unusually strong magnetic fields a code magnetized and they could be the source of fast radio bursts when they collide neutron stars send incredible bursts of gravitational waves across the universe. In contrast the gentle hum of a spinning neutron star would be very faint almost impossible to detect the nearest surge targets young recently form neutron stars. Which haven't yet compacted into a perfect sphere and so retained some slight deformities which should amid a strong extreme of gravitational waves as these searches become more and more sensitive providing more and more details about the possible shape and composition of neutron stars for example. Either the roundest objects in the universe being able to detect the signature Could allow scientists to pay deep into the heart of neutron stars unlocking the secrets us grab chief investigative professor susan god from the afc center of excellence gravitational wave discovery at the australian. National university says astronomer still trying to understand neutron stars what they made of and how many different types there are. She says searching for the gravitational waves on the last science. The probe nuclear matter states at simply can't be produced in laboratories on earth. Want to go off the neutron stars. Because they're one of the most unexplained thaws in the university of the danger stop and we can hook the form of massive that we just can't probably either on earth or in the systems. So how do we want to do. It is with gravitational waves because he was some kind of a symmetry in a neutron saw then that symmetry at the star tight would produce continuous stream or gravitational waves albeit very very weak one. And the way we imagine that these symmetry could be produced For example body incredibly strong magnetic fields that you don't start how they're like a million billion times the strength of the magnetic field on us and for instance if they're in a bond racism then the magnetic field and the neutral in stock and channel nassar that it steals from the companion to its magnetic poles creding kind of minnie mouse and at each pole and these many mountains because an incredible density the neutrons saw off sufficient to cause and not of an ice symmetry for us to have a crack at detecting the continuous from than a few millimeters high they. They're incredibly small. But i guess that's all takes that's right because of the phenomenal dance. Not in neutron stars small mouth and even and we don't know exactly the size yet but maybe a few millimeters. Oh up to saint. Tomatoes would be enough if we can get enough of that. Particular saw to eventually detect gravitational wave screen caused by that little mini mountain. So the idea is you're going to stop listening for this background. Ma gets because you'll be happening all the time wouldn't it because there are lots of neutron stars and they constantly spinning and some of them are gonna be spending a way that once they signal towards the us that's right and the cost with gravitational wave we can detect them given out sort of in a reasonably even fashion and then we can detect those in any and in fact we go off than utah that we don't know about so we do blind searches of the sky full neutron stars that we don't yet know existing. My we believe that most of the neutral stop population is not observable by electromagnetic name names. We've seen you know. Quite a small fraction of neutral saw that we believe are out there and gravitational waves or a very powerful to walk that population because as long as they have some kind of symmetry then we can go up to the continuous which that imagery produces. What would sound like. It wouldn't be the chip. I guess it'd be like a like If anything and of course the difficulty here is that the strength of these way is like Several orders of magnitude than we get from ou- collisions black holes and neutron saab which matches events and as much stronger. So obviously we haven't detected a come this background hamas gravitational white some the neutral installed in the universe as yes But we inching closer and closer and asked me go. We're putting the constraints on the amount of gravitational why the nation that a neutral can have that and also on it shape. This is really fine. Physics you movie into here. This is how do you tell the difference between a ham and just the normal quantum fluctuations of matlab popping.

"Pool capital coming to it and the guys that don't do that aren't gonna have those pools capital from the on market in the equity market come in and as passive money is now the majority in the market the what was unconventional in the energy business in two thousand six is just normal today. That's where we're going to ten to fifteen years where you have to have any plant. You have to reduce your carbon emissions. You have to diversify and and meet those criteria. If you don't your cost of capital will go up and just like what happened to the coal sector. You're going to be wiped out. So that's why you're going to see the early stages of this revolution. So when i mentioned that less than ten percent of the fifty two hundred companies with over a billion market cap thera publicly listed in north. America and europe have come out with a plan. They haven't started executing that plan. It's probably less than two percent actually started executing the plan. I remember on the financial balance sheet. Just like if you have t pond or a bond or your environmental liability ability be carbon. Emissions is going to be legislated within the decade that that's a liability companies are going to have to meet that right now. There's over two thousand companies in that pool of five thousand after report there s one emissions. That's direct emissions caused by the direct activity. So if i'm an oil company. And i drill a well. Pump up that oil. You can now accurately without any debate using the technology at hand. Today actually measured the carp direct carbon emissions caused by that activity companies like shell. You mentioned the supermajors shells. Probably the leading one in the big oil Bp tries to pretend they are but they're really playing catch up For example i published in my research all last year. I was talking about all this chart showing that if you take every carbon credit remember this all started nine hundred ninety seven kyoto protocol. If you take all the credits ever created just a few of the oil companies to net neutral for one year would consume all of the credits created so this is a huge gross sector. Someone like shell is probably they need north of one hundred million Tons a year of carbon offsets to go net neutral and these companies are making these commitments. And if they don't meet it. These pools capital are going to punish them both in the bond market in the equity market. So it's not starting with the juniors starting with the big cats because it's a big pool of capital so if you look at someone like you take the The green bond eps which publicly listed one of the top ten holdings that is home depot. let's really think about that. They may have good social governance. And and what about the environmental aspect. Most of those gadgets are are are made in china china's largest emitter of pollution on the planet. Not only that if you every. Ocd nation combined. China's still makes more pollution than all of those oecd nations combined. So even though humpty proves trying to make a direct impact there are massive. Facilitator of the pollution and their exposure isn't really being offset properly so as more companies like shell are doing more to offset. They're doing the right things that cool capital. That has nowhere to go so like our home. Depot's kinda. es g a capital is going to go into other companies. It's going to be competing for pool capital so the days of just financial metrics.

Coal ash contaminates groundwater near most U.S. coal plants: study

"Meanwhile, Trump is out there talking about how wonderful coal is. And we need to expand coal, and we need to build more coal plants, and we need more coal miners. When in fact, coal like, not good stuff. Oliver millman writing for the guardian. Nine out of every ten coal plants in the United States with report data have have contaminated nearby groundwater, and this is no small thing. They're contaminating the ground water from this is from the coal ash from the waste that the coal plants produce. We literally have. Hundreds of millions of tons of this stuff. The average American coal plants produce one hundred million tons of coal ash a year. And they store it. There's two billion tonnes right now stored in the United States. And you know, what's getting into the groundwater? I mean, this is literally all over the United States of the two hundred sixty five US power plants, monitor grandma groundwater, two hundred forty two of reported unsafe levels. Of the following, pollutants arsenic, which causes cancer multiple types of cancer and lithium which is associated with neurological damage. Nine out of ten coal plants, coal coal-fired power plants. I mean, this is crazy.
