Let’s be clear. Neither oil and gas prices nor energy stocks will be immune if the global economy slides into recession later this year. And damage to prices would be compounded if Russian, Iranian and/or Venezuelan oil re-enters the market in a meaningful way.

But that said, what the Federal Reserve and other central banks are attempting now to quell inflation will not end the energy up-cycle that began in spring 2020. Neither would a return to the market of supply from what are currently pariah countries.

In fact, any energy sector retreat we see in coming months is far more likely to result in the long-term cycle being both longer and stronger. And means much higher prices for favored stocks than we saw at the top of the up-cycle that ended in 2014.

  • Midstream M&A’s Train Picks Up Steam

    By Roger S. Conrad on Jun. 4, 2021

    Too many small owners lacking critical scale and unprecedented roadblocks to new energy pipeline infrastructure: That’s what was at the core of the unprecedented wave of US oil and gas midstream dividend cuts and bankruptcies of the past few years.
