Quote Stuff

Energy-focused private equity firm Kimmeridge Energy Management published a report in February that called for a “new business model” for E&Ps.

The New York-headquartered company labelled the shale industry as currently “un-investable” and said it was in a “time of crisis”.

It added: “The industry’s response so far has been to hunker down, change little about the business model, and hope for a cyclical recovery. We believe this is a mistake."

My stories are all true, slightly embellished, perhaps, but true; I don't change names to protect the guilty. I am as accurate as possible about history and historical facts; I work very hard at that.All rights are reserved, whatever that means.  Don't blame me,  I didn't do it.
