"Higher for Longer: How to Profit from Sustained High Energy Prices"

    Discussed by:

    Elliott Gue
    Editor, Personal Finance, MLP Profits and The Energy Strategist

Politicians like to blame rising energy prices on speculation, and many pundits seem to regard $100/bbl oil as a temporary phenomenon driven solely by global geopolitics. But, they’re wrong: Rising demand from developing countries and difficulties in increasing global oil output are the main drivers of rising energy prices, and both trends are here to stay. China still consumes a fraction of the oil developed economies use on a per capita basis, but rising disposable incomes there will continue to drive convergence. Meanwhile, most of the major new fields being discovered are tough-to-produce reserves such as those in the deepwater, Arctic and unconventional fields like the oil sands. In this session we’ll examine the true drivers of energy prices and a handful of companies best placed to benefit from a prolonged period of high and rising energy prices.
