Who could have fully appreciated the impact of investors’ demanding that oil companies completely modify their US drilling behavior in 2019?  Will this free cash flow mantra bleed into the major oil companies’ activities outside North America?  Are the IOCs focusing on remote exploration and development to avoid the scrutiny of Greta Thunberg’s anti-oil acolytes? Is Greta sacrificing the millions employed by oil in order to maybe save the planet at some date yet to be determined hundreds of years from now (or maybe 12).  Richard Spears will present his firm’s 2020 outlook for oilfield service & equipment markets while posing the 10 questions you should be asking yourself about society and the oil industry heading into the new year.
