I get complaints from some people that they are unable to read this blog while at work. I can only assure them that it's not as a result of anything on our end. Some of the producers may be blocking access at the firewall. Which sounds familiar to me. Nonetheless it would be helpful to this cause if we could expand the readership by sending our url’s to others who may be of like mind. One caution is to ensure that you know they are not going to use it against you. We have a job to do and it is going to be done on the basis of everyone doing things that are done differently than the way we do them now.
Our friends the bureaucrats also seem to be relying on a low interest rate environment to maintain the false economy that exists and which they seem to prosper in. Without the demands of an alternative investment that pays 7 or 8% for sitting on your money. The bureaucrats know there is nowhere else that you can invest. Therefore your stuck with their poor performance as the best that there is. What the investors in Encana have realized with the 90% decline in that shares price. Is that there is a potential loss that can occur as a result of sticking with the producers.
And I was thinking more about Encana since their quarterly report. They've lost 90% of their share value due to the fact that they were an almost 100% natural gas producer. They recently acquired an oil producer to offset this exposure. The point is that the natural gas market has been down for more than five years. Shale gas has destroyed the pricing of that commodity for these past five or more years. Maybe it takes five years for the effects of these poor prices to have the types of share price declines that Encana has experienced. If so, and with oil being down for almost one year, we have four more years before the entire industry loses the 90% of their market cap. A reasonable assumption.
I don't see anyway out of the oil and gas industries difficulties without the Preliminary Specification being put in place. And it will take a few years to do that. But then I am biased the bureaucrats would assert. The issues are bad today. And there are many issues that were unaddressed in the recent past that still need to be addressed but have been forgotten. And there are many difficulties in the very near future that I can see. What we do know is the “muddle along strategy,” which has poorly served this business for so long, will still be ineffective. All of these issues are challenging the capacity and capabilities of the industry, and therefore our way of life. And therefore should be considered by the bureaucrats in that context. It is however late July and their cabin’s are in their prime season at this time of year. People, Ideas & Objects have a tiger by the tail, as they say. And therefore we will live to fight another day.
The Preliminary Specification and user community provides the oil and gas producer with the most dynamic, innovative, profitable and successful means of oil and gas operations. People, Ideas & Objects Revenue Model specifies the means in which investors can participate in these user defined software developments. Users are welcome to join me here.
