The Boston Blackout
– OF 2023 –
REVEALED: The Shocking True Story Behind Boston’s Secret Russian Gas Purchases – and How This Crisis Could Soon Spread Across America… Right Now, the World’s Greatest Investors (Including the Oracle of Omaha) Are Positioning Themselves to Make Billions!
What’s going to happen in New England will be called a “shocking natural disaster.”
The media will explode with headlines about how global warming and climate change is to blame.
We predict thousands of people will seek refuge in generator-powered public shelters. While homes are without electricity and heat in the dead of winter.
Progressives will demand more government power to “fight” climate change.
But you’ll know better.
As you’ll see in this report, there’s nothing surprising at all about the coming crisis. Just the opposite... this disaster has been looming for a decade.
There’s not a single political leader who isn’t perfectly aware of the growing risk of a serious crisis.
They know Boston has been relying on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s natural gas for years and, right now, there’s virtually no other way to power New England’s grid.
Likewise, every credible energy expert in the world knows this crisis is about to strike. There’s nothing natural, or surprising, or even secret about what’s likely to happen.
But no one is warning you. Not the mainstream media. Not your political leaders. And not the power companies.
No one is going to tell you what you need to know to protect yourself, to protect your family, and to safeguard your savings and investments.
That’s why, whether you live in New England or not, I urge you to take a little bit of time and watch this presentation about the economic catastrophe that’s unfolding.
While the worst of what’s about to happen will strike New England first, these same forces are at work across the country, putting us all at risk…
They point to a major change in the way we all live, work, travel and provide for the safety of our families.
There’s a very real chance that the Boston area will suffer a historic power failure this winter…
Forcing residents to spend night after night, for weeks, in public shelters. While homes sit frozen and dark – entire neighborhoods blacked out.
It’s important for you to know what’s going to happen. So first and foremost, you can prepare. But it’s also important to remember that a big crisis like this is going to make a lot of money for a lot of people.
After all, there has to be a good reason so many people have taken extraordinary steps to make sure that America is starving for energy this winter.
I know it sounds unbelievable to say that people in positions of power are actually planning this... but, as I’ll explain, it’s true.
Because nobody else is going to warn you. And no one else is going to tell you the real reason why they let it happen.
Cities don’t go dark and freeze in the wealthiest country in the world by accident.
HOW RUSSIAN IMPORTED GAS – BANNED IN THE U.S. – SAVED BOSTON IN 2018
Let me just start with this, so you’ll know how serious I am about these predictions…
As you may know, when Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula in 2014, the U.S. Treasury banned Americans from doing business with hundreds of Russian companies that were involved, directly or indirectly, with the Putin regime.
Among the companies specifically put on the “no financing” list was a huge Russian energy company, Novatek.
Novatek is Russia’s largest independent producer of natural gas. Back in 2014 Novatek was still developing its primary asset – the world’s most ambitious energy project…
Called “Yamal,” Novatek’s prize asset is a $30 billion natural gas field, pipeline system and LNG (liquified natural gas) facility. It’s the largest energy production facility in the world.
What’s so unusual about Yamal, though, isn’t its size. What’s incredible is this: the entire facility – the gas field, the pipelines, and the huge LNG terminal – are all located above the Arctic Circle.
Building these facilities and operating in such extreme weather conditions made Yamal the most expensive natural gas facility ever built.
Getting Yamal’s energy to the world’s markets required building an entirely new class of icebreakers with enormous steel hulls that are 8 feet thick!
When the project finally came online in 2018 and began producing LNG and shipping to the world, who bought the first shipment ever produced?
Who would buy energy from Novatek, which, as a Russian energy company, was an international pariah?
The U.S. government, for the people of Boston.
This picture was first published in the Washington Post on January 28, 2018. It shows a huge LNG tanker lying in port at the Mystic River LNG terminal in Boston harbor.
This was the first shipment of LNG ever produced at Yamal.
How do we know? Because the Russian Embassy in London tweeted about it arriving in England a few weeks earlier.
The British wouldn’t accept it. So it was resold to a Malaysian company called Petronas, and then sold again, to the French company that owns the terminal in Boston.
At the time, Boston was suffering a huge and severe cold snap. It needed the energy badly… and so… the U.S. government bought the first boatload of Yamal’s natural gas – Putin’s crown jewel energy asset.
Russian gas, produced in the Arctic, shipped halfway around the world… all to keep Americans from freezing.
How could this be true?
How in the world could it come to this?
Let me introduce you to Ed Markey. He’s the senior Massachusetts Senator and co-author of the “Green New Deal” legislation. Between him, and Elizabeth Warren, and the state’s ultra-progressive attorney general, Maura Healey - they’ve made sure that no gas pipelines have been built into New England for over a decade.
As part of their radical environmentalist agenda, they’ve also done everything they can to prevent any further investments into fossil fuel production, while shutting down nuclear energy too.
And yet… when winter arrives (as it always does), what do they do?
The progressives from Boston warm their homes with Russian gas.
What are they going to do this year, you’re probably wondering?
It’s the reason for this report...
Because without reliable access to fossil fuels – there’s no transportation. There’s no electricity.
There’s no modern world.
Without oil and gas, everything as we know it stops.
There’s no light... no heat... no refrigerators... no Wi-Fi (or computers).
No one can travel anywhere. Everyone is cold (or, if it’s summertime, hot).
Every economically productive human activity ends.
People are reduced to playing cards by candlelight and hunting for wood to make fires to keep warm.
That’s before the rioting starts.
So with this much at stake, let me walk you step-by-step through what’s going to happen, and why…
And most important: how to prepare yourself.
If Russia continues to squeeze and starve Europe of natural gas, Europe will run out of gas in a matter of months. And even if all available U.S. LNG (liquid natural gas) were to be shipped to Europe, it could only replace about 25% of the Russian supply.
There’s no way enough LNG can be sourced from the world market without very significant increases in prices. The result will be destabilizing rates of inflation across Europe and potentially severe energy shortages this winter.
It will happen in Boston too. And possibly the rest of New England. Mark my words.
The resulting economic crisis will impact every single American.
The bottom line is clear: America needs to produce a lot more natural gas – like 50% more, which is around 50 billion cubic feet per day more.
Fortunately, those rates of production are possible. America has the capacity to mobilize our energy complex to dramatically increase production and help reduce the prices, and provide energy security, for our allies...
Construction can begin on vast new LNG export capabilities. And we can ship enough LNG across the Atlantic to power electric grids from London to Bucharest.
Along the way, investors in natural gas production and infrastructure could make a fortune – which is in part why I’ve written this report.
There’s only one catch. None of these things are going to happen until the Biden administration changes its tune and begins to rein in radical environmentalists, like Ed Markey and Maura Healey.
It’s going to take an event like the Boston Blackout, along with persistent inflation, and a recession to make Biden change course on fossil fuel investment and infrastructure.
It’s going to take things like exposing Boston’s dependence on Vladimir Putin to get the American people to see what’s really happening.
But sooner or later, these changes are inevitable. Why?
Because there’s no other practical way to ensure the reliability and the affordability of electricity, around the world, without huge increases to natural gas production and distribution.
And right now, only a handful of companies are holding the right cards.
How Bad Could Things Get in Boston (and in America) This Winter?
Take a look at this...
This is the LNG tanker Iberica Knutsen arriving in Boston for the fourth time this year.
In a lot of places around the world – including in New England – natural gas is one of the main fuels for powering electrical grids and heating homes.
That’s never been a problem for Americans because we have some of the world’s largest reserves of natural gas. We also have the world’s most extensive natural gas infrastructure – pipelines that stretch around our country…
America is, by far, the world’s leading producer of natural gas. And, thanks to growth in production led by the “fracking” revolution, America has also recently become the world’s largest exporter of natural gas – something that’s become critical to the energy security of the world since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
So… why on earth was the U.S. government buying Russian gas for Boston during its winter emergencies…?
It’s no secret that Boston and the rest of New England depend, almost exclusively, on natural gas for their primary energy source...
This chart shows how, since the late 1990s, natural gas has become the dominant power source for the electrical grid in New England.
So, no matter what the politicians and the media tell you about the wonders of “green” energy – windmills and solar panels – what they don’t tell you is that fossil fuels still make up 80% or more of electrical generation capacity in the U.S.
And in most places, as coal-fired plants and nuclear fired plants are phased out, natural gas is coming online at two to three times the rate of “green” sources, which are too unreliable (weather, night) and too expensive (batteries) to serve as “baseload” power to ensure the grid’s stability.
But the physical and economic realities of America’s energy grid don’t win elections – especially not in extremely liberal and progressive states like Massachusetts and New York.
The politicians in those states must prove their liberal bona fides to their voters by opposing any new production of natural gas (like anti-fracking laws) and by making it impossible to build new pipelines to transport natural gas into their states.
They’ve killed virtually every new pipeline anyone has tried to build to link New England with the giant natural gas fields in Pennsylvania.
Even though the gas pipelines serving New England have been operating at maximum capacity (sometimes even in non-winter months) – no significant new pipelines have been built since 2008.
As a result, the U.S. has had to import natural gas from places like Trinidad and Tobago and, yes, from Russia, to heat the homes in New England every winter.
Incredibly, New England’s politicians would rather have us buy gas from Putin than allow sensible investments in critical infrastructure to utilize America’s own energy bounty.
Experts estimate such policies have already cost New England residents over $3 billion in higher energy costs compared to consumers in Pennsylvania.
And now, after a decade of playing politics with the energy grid, Boston is at serious risk of a catastrophe, with no immediate help possible.
There’s of course an embargo on Russian energy exports… and now, all other sources of LNG have been rerouted to Europe…
Even before all the problems with the Nord Stream Pipeline (the gas pipeline that runs under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany), the entire world’s LNG fleet had turned and headed for Europe to capture the highest prices possible for natural gas.
So, when New England runs out of gas this winter, there won’t be any gas available – it’ll all be on its way to Europe!
If you’ve ever been to Boston in the winter, you know extremely cold temperatures are not an unusual or “freak” weather event.
It happens every year.
In January, Boston has an average high temperature of 37 degrees... and a low of 22... 13 inches of snow falls, and there’s less than 10 hours of daylight.
So… ask yourself….
Why would our political leaders allow New England and New York (23 million people combined) to become utterly dependent on imported natural gas – from places like Russia?
Why in the world would they choose to use imported energy when America has so much energy we’ve become the world’s largest natural gas exporter?
It makes no sense.
Or does it?
These facts have been evident for over a decade.
Every winter the likelihood of a huge crisis has been growing. With the complete embargo of Russian oil and gas and Europe’s energy crisis, it’s now virtually certain that Boston – and possibly other parts of New England, and New York could be plunged into the dark and cold during the chilliest days of the winter.
So… who will benefit…?
And… how has it come to this?
ENERGY: THE WORLD’S GREATEST PRIZE
Since 2006, I’ve been advising individual self-directed investors on the development of U.S. energy resources...
I was one of the first analysts, anywhere, to explain what the discovery of vast new oil and gas reserves in America’s shale fields would mean to U.S. energy production.
When I started writing about these huge discoveries more than a decade ago, few believed me when I predicted that U.S. oil and gas production would soon reach new all-time highs...
Back then everyone still believed in “peak oil” – the idea that America would soon run out of oil!
But I knew the opposite was true, and told investors around the world that much lower prices were on the way.
Those that took my advice made out like bandits. Which is what’s possible when you’re able to understand major investment themes that evolve over a period of years…
This approach has led me to dozens of great emerging companies during my career. There was Amazon in 1997 when it traded for pennies (it’s currently over $115)...
Illumina in 2002 when it was under $3 a share (it’s around $200 today)... Nvidia in 2016 at around $12 a share (now over $125)…
There was PayPal… Shopify… and Regeneron for gains of over 250%... 950%... and 4,900% respectively…
But I have to tell you, what's happening in this market right now is far more important and potentially more lucrative than anything I’ve seen in my career…
I’m talking of course about the quiet revolution that’s happening in the North American energy sector.
The point of this report isn’t to tell you about America’s ability to produce enormous quantities of natural gas…
The fact is, America is the world’s largest producer of natural gas. And since July 2022, we’ve also become the world’s largest exporter of natural gas too – with even more export production coming online soon.
America’s energy revolution is transforming the world’s economy...
It has led to immense wealth for American energy companies and even altered the dynamics of the world’s currency markets, where the U.S. dollar, after a long period of relative weakness, has once again become the strongest major currency in the world.
It’s hard to believe how fast this transformation has occurred. Until 2010, America was still one of the world’s largest importers of natural gas and oil.
Today though, we’re a net exporter of both. And, as you can see in the chart, our natural gas exports are soaring...
It’s very likely we will remain the world’s largest producer and the world’s largest exporter of natural gas for the next 50 years, at least.
We have at least 100 years’ worth of production in the ground today, and the ability to extract it improves every year...
Every American should know these facts… and we should be positioning ourselves in the best way possible in the face of the world’s current energy crisis.
And yet… a shocking number of Americans are in the dark, both figuratively, and soon... literally.
Ironically, these problems we’re facing… and the disaster we’re about to see unfold in New England… they all have a single cause.
What could cause large parts of America to be so completely unprepared for regular events… like cold weather?
What could cause California’s electric grid to routinely fail and start massive fires?
What could cause Texas – the heart of America’s energy revolution – and millions of people to be without power for weeks simply because of a normal winter storm last year?
The answer is politics.
A large amount of funding for conservative politicians comes from the oil and gas industries. The easiest way for their progressive political opponents to attack them is to spread misinformation about global warming and climate change caused by fossil fuel emissions...
Take, for instance, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who pounds the podium and declares, “the world will end in 12 years…”
“Climate change is our World War II” she wails…
“People are dying!”
If you’ve heard too much about politics lately, don’t worry.
This report isn’t about global warming. I invite you to look at the facts and come to your own conclusions about if and how the climate is changing, what the causes of it are, and what it means for the future.
What isn’t in dispute is that natural gas is the cheapest and cleanest, and most reliable source of stable grid electricity that exists with current technology.
Without natural gas, the lights won’t work anywhere on Earth.
And political efforts to choke off natural gas – in Europe and in America by progressive politicians – may cause the biggest economic crisis the world has seen in more than a half century.
The whole world is about to re-learn the real cost of politics gone mad.
And it’s completely unnecessary.
The only upside is, for anyone who is a clear-eyed realist, there is a massive amount of money to be made from the soaring prices of energy.
My job is to help self-directed investors like you position yourself to profit. And you may never have a better opportunity to do so in your entire life.
That’s what this report is all about.
HOW TO PROFIT IN A WORLD GONE MAD
My name, by the way, is Porter Stansberry.
I’ve exposed some of the biggest secrets in financial history. As I mentioned, I revealed “peak oil” was a myth all the way back in 2006.
A couple years later, I warned readers that the U.S. housing market was on the verge of triggering a stock market crash.
In June 2008, I warned specifically that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were holding hundreds of billions worth of subprime liabilities that wrote that both would soon be bankrupt.
Legendary writer Alan Abelson, at Barron’s, said my warnings about the imminent collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and in 2008 were “remarkably prescient.”
In 2010, I described in near-perfect detail many events of the last decade or so – riots, government lockdowns, rampant inflation – in a 77-minute video presentation called “End of America”.
You may have seen it online. It’s been viewed over 100 million times.
Hell, even as far back as 1997, I told my readers to buy shares of “the world’s biggest bookstore”. That’s what Amazon called itself in those days.
You could say I have a knack for finding the biggest opportunities in the financial markets and for seeing clearly the biggest risks.
The situation with the world’s energy markets today is actually both: for many people the next few years will be incredibly painful.
I expect Europe’s GDP, for example, will shrink by double-digits this winter, leading to plummeting standards of living, rising political violence and, believe it or not, a substantial decrease in life expectancies in some places.
Simply put, when the power goes out, people die. And that’s what’s about to happen on an enormous scale.
HOW ESG INVESTING MADE ENERGY VASTLY MORE EXPENSIVE
So why would America’s political leaders turn their backs on what energy insiders call “the New Saudi Arabia” of energy – our shale fields, particularly when there’s so much on the line?
The falling supply of energy in America and the growing unreliability of the power grid is a direct consequence of the shocking politicization of our financial markets...
Money managers, major banks, and dozens of major private equity funds have quietly adopted a private-label form of socialism called “stakeholder capitalism.”
At its core, “stakeholder capitalism” claims that “we” (all of the stakeholders in society) are the legitimate owners of corporations – not investors.
Meaning, companies shouldn’t just be accountable to their owners (that is, their shareholders). Instead, they should be accountable to the social goals of society.
Today, the leaders of this new version of socialism have been demanding three things, known as “ESG.”
First, it holds that corporations be accountable to the Environment.
That’s code for avoiding all fossil fuel production, transportation, or consumption – justified by claims that any further emissions will doom the planet.
Second, corporations should have an explicit Social agenda. That means specifically choosing to hire and promote minorities and women, for example, instead of hiring and promoting employees regardless of race, sex, or creed.
But the most dangerous aspect of this new form of socialism is how it’s attempting to transform the way corporations appoint their own management teams and board members.
Third, the Governance angle is designed to essentially take control of businesses without having to actually buy them...
This is accomplished by pushing companies to appoint “consultants” and other “experts” in subjects like structural racism and global warming to their boards, rather than large shareholders, or real industry experts.
Let me show you an actual case of how this is destroying major corporations – and dramatically reducing investments in fossil fuel production…
Last year a tiny hedge fund called Engine No. 1 – a fund that was less than six months old and that managed a miniscule amount of money (just $250 million) – bought a very small (0.2%) position in ExxonMobil, a business worth over $400 billion.
Engine No. 1 put forward an absurdly un-economic shareholder proposal that ExxonMobil – the world’s 2nd-biggest publicly traded oil and gas producer – stop producing fossil fuels and called on the company to redirect its capital spending on “clean” energy technology.
Engine No. 1 then demanded that four of its nominees be elected to the board (made up of 12 people) to make sure that these new priorities were taken seriously by management.
Why would ExxonMobil’s shareholders want to nominate radical environmentalists to its board? Why would its shareholders want to stop producing fossil fuels?
They wouldn’t, of course.
And ExxonMobil’s management team recommended that shareholders vote against Engine No. 1-nominated directors.
Engine No. 1, however, was clever. It didn’t really represent energy investors at all. Its founder is a San Francisco-based asset manager with an environmental agenda...
Behind the scenes it solicited the support of billionaire CEO of BlackRock, Larry Fink, who, through BlackRock’s ETFs and mutual funds, was the largest shareholder of ExxonMobil.
BlackRock, along with America’s two other largest asset managers (Vanguard and State Street), have signed on to the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, which says that the companies they invest in will cut their emissions to zero by 2050 – whether doing so makes economic sense, or not.
Altogether these asset managers held 15% of ExxonMobil’s shares. Engine No. 1 also coordinated with other major proxy holders, like the progressive-led California State Teachers’ Retirement System, the Church of England, and the New York State Common Retirement Fund.
These kinds of investment intermediaries – Wall Street’s asset managers, large state-controlled pension funds, and other institutional managers – are almost always led by Ivy-league educated elitists.
They believe they “know better” about what’s best for America, and for you.
And because they control – even if they aren’t the ultimate owners of – a huge portion of America’s retirement savings, they have the power to radically transform every public company in America.
And it doesn’t matter whether you – the actual shareholder – like it or not.
You don’t have a vote anymore – not in corporate America.
At ExxonMobil, Engine No. 1 was able to elect three directors to ExxonMobil’s board, or 25% of the board. And they were able to push through a remarkable portion of their agenda, which is in direct contradiction to ExxonMobil’s core business.
If these ESG elites can take over ExxonMobil, they can take over any company in America.
So far, the impact of the ESG agenda on the oil and gas industry has been a decline in fossil fuel production. That’s because of the drop in capital spending across the industry, which remains 30% below pre-COVID levels despite higher energy prices...
But this year’s power crisis is only the beginning of the havoc ESG will wreak on America. The damage will spread far beyond just the energy sector…
Let’s take a look at America’s credit rating agencies – S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch’s.
These firms play a critical role in determining which companies, states, and municipalities can get access to credit — and at what price. They do this by assigning ratings to every bond that’s sold in the U.S.
Without a rating from these companies, you cannot sell a bond in the U.S. Meaning, these firms literally control access to capital in America.
The bond market is where companies and governments go to borrow money to finance their operations, to get capital to build new factories, to pave roads, to build bridges – and oil fields – and so on.
The U.S. bond market controls $46 trillion in capital. It’s the largest single pool of capital in the world.
Without access to this market, it’s virtually impossible for any institution – a corporation or a municipal government – to function. That’s why the credit rating agencies are so important and so powerful.
Last year, the three leading credit rating agencies all added a new kind of rating to their credit reviews: an ESG rating.
That means virtually every institution in the world – businesses and governments – if they want access to America’s capital markets will be forced to support progressive views toward the environment, social progress, and “woke” governance.
You might find this all too incredible to believe. But it’s happening.
Why haven’t you heard about this before now?
Because, so far, these battles have been taking place in boardrooms and on Wall Street.
The impacts of these changes haven’t hit Main Street yet – but they will. And when they do, most Americans are going to be outraged.
The stall in America’s oil and natural gas production I showed you a second ago is having serious economic consequences...
It’s one of the main drivers of the inflation we’re seeing. Which hurts everybody. And unfortunately, it’s going to get a lot worse for millions of Americans this year.
The lack of investment in infrastructure – for instance, a gas pipeline from the Marcellus shale in New York to consumers in Massachusetts – is going to make for a long, cold dark winter in New England.
And then there’s the situation in Europe, which is even more dire.
So how many catastrophes need to happen before there’s a backlash against these ESG trends that caused them?
When will most Americans realize the actual costs – both economic and to our way of life – and begin a wholesale rejection of these ideas and the investors who brought them to the board room?
It’s beginning to happen....
Attorneys General from 19 U.S states have petitioned the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate blatant conflicts built into the ESG investing practices at BlackRock, the ESG flag bearer and the second largest asset manager in the world.
They’re asking the agency to look into BlackRock’s ties to China and the extent to which the firm is violating its fiduciary responsibility to its investors.
In other words, they’re wondering why BlackRock is using pension and retirement money from their states to do business with Chinese companies (with no ESG standards) while at the same time strong-arming U.S. companies to embrace things like net-zero emissions.
The next step is for these 19 states to pull their pensions out of BlackRock, and ban any sort of state financial involvement with ESG-oriented firms.
And that domino has fallen… BlackRock, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan have already been banned from entering into any banking contract with state agencies of West Virginia. Others will follow.
Which could only benefit retirement accounts in those states, right?
ESG funds – such the U.S. Vegan Climate ETF – are money losers, they’re underperforming their benchmarks… and the whole crooked game is becoming more and more blatantly dangerous to the world economy.
And the ultimate solution? The only way to provide for a growing economy, for an improving standard of living, and for an increasing population is to produce a whole lot more energy...
The cleanest way to do that is with natural gas.
Within the next year, the entire world is going to realize that the best, safest, and cleanest way to grow the world’s economy is by using America’s natural gas.
And after years of declining investment, it will take 3-5 years for America’s oil and gas companies to ramp up production to meet soaring global demand. That means investors in these firms are going to generate returns like they haven’t seen in decades.
Overall, the demand supply and demand characteristics for U.S. oil and gas haven’t been this favorable since the 1970s...
That’s why the world’s best investor – Warren Buffett – has been investing in oil and gas like never before. His investments during the first half of 2022 are among the biggest bets he’s ever made...
Just how big? Well, Buffett’s total cost basis for Coca-Cola was $1.3 billion. And he started buying Apple in 2016 and bought $6.7 billion that year.
Coca-Cola and Apple are right at the top of his signature stock picks and best performers. His energy investments for the past year?
Over $29 billion.
When history’s most successful investor makes one of his biggest bets ever – it’s time to act…
That’s why I recently hired two full-time energy analysts from Texas and Florida, and moved them to Maryland.
Together our focus has been on understanding how the biggest natural gas resources in America will be developed and how they will be sold and delivered into the world market.
And we’ve found an incredible story! It’s about three brothers who’ve built the largest natural gas producer in America, from scratch, over the last 15 years. And they’re transitioning their company right now to become an export-focused, global LNG giant.
Over the next decade, I expect investors in this company to make over 10x returns.
This is so important, I want to tell you the whole story.
To do that, I need to go back to September 7, 2008...
HOW THE “FRAC” REVOLUTION SAVED AMERICA
At about noon that Sunday, a small independent oil and gas company, Brigham Exploration, began drilling a well in the Williston basin of North Dakota.
The well, Olson 10-15 #1H, was founder Bud Brigham’s last chance.
The looming financial crisis meant there would be no more investors to back Bud’s attempts to wrestle oil and gas out of the super hard rock of the Bakken shale.
His company was $300 million in debt. And his firm’s share price was collapsing. The company, in total, was only worth $60 million.
Bud couldn’t blame investors for losing faith.
Pushing huge amounts of fracking fluid into long horizontal wells was a longshot play. The extreme distance of the deep horizontal wells dispersed the fracking pressure.
In short, the technique couldn’t deliver enough pounds per square foot of pressure to crack the rock around the borehole. No cracks meant no oil and gas flowing into the well.
His existing wells in the area produced less than 200 barrels a day, which didn’t cover the costs of operating.
But with the Olson 10-15 #1H well, Bud Brigham was trying something very different: there was nothing left to lose.
Four years earlier, an independent oil and gas company called EOG invented something they called “swell packers.” They were tough, rubbery membranes that swelled under fracking pressure, sealing off a portion of the well.
Meaning “swell packers” could be used to divide up a long horizontal well into several different zones, greatly increasing the effective force (pounds per square foot) of a frac job.
EOG had, so far, broken up mile-long laterals into five or six segments. Brigham figured if you drilled a far longer lateral section and broke it up into even more segments – and fracked the hell out of it – you’d probably get a lot more oil out of the well.
So, with Olson 10-15 #1H Brigham told his crew to drill a 10,000-foot lateral section – a horizontal well almost 2 miles long. And he told his crew to frack 20 different segments.
No one had ever done anything like that before.
Drilling the well took months – well into the North Dakota winter and at temperatures well below zero. There was four feet of snow on the ground in late January after the last of 20 frac jobs. Finally, they pulled the last tools out of the well.
Would it flow?
You bet it would!
The Olson 10-15 #1H well began producing more than 1,000 barrels of oil per day... and 1.3 million cubic feet of natural gas per day...
With oil prices at around $100 per barrel and gas prices around $5 a cubic foot, the Olson 10-15 #1H well started producing more than $40 million worth of oil and more than $2 million worth of gas a year.
By 2011, just a little over two years after finishing the Olson 10-15 #1H well, Brigham Exploration was producing 21,000 barrels of oil per day across its 375,000 acres in the Williston basin…
Before Brigham’s Bakken breakthrough, the entire state of North Dakota produced less than 100,00 barrels of oil per day.
By 2014, North Dakota had surpassed both California and Alaska as the number two oil-producing state, behind Texas, with over 1 million barrels a day of production.
That was up an incredible 11-fold from 2007 levels...
Bud Brigham’s “Hail Mary” drilling and fracking technique quickly spread around the country. It was a game changer, especially in the Permian Basin in West Texas.
By 2014 the Permian was producing 2 million barrels a day, roughly 25% of total U.S. production. It was on its way to becoming one of the world’s biggest oilfields.
Nothing like this has ever happened in America, on this scale, ever before.
And get this: the Permian isn’t the only giant shale oil field discovered in Texas. The Eagle Ford shale, south and west of Austin, is also among the largest fields in the world - currently producing 1.7 million barrels per day.
All in all, in just five years, between 2009 and 2014, Texas oil production tripled.
That made Texas, by itself, the world’s ninth-largest oil producer, ahead of Kuwait and just behind Iraq according to the BP energy statistical publication.
The rest of the world must shake its head in disbelief when they look at America’s natural resource endowment...
By 2019, the shale revolution directly employed 2.8 million Americans. And now for the first time since 1948, the United States is energy independent again.
In fact, we’re not only the world’s largest producer of oil and gas, but we’re also producing far more energy than we consume, making the U.S. a net energy exporter…
In 2007, before the shale revolution, Americans sent $400 billion abroad to purchase oil, every year. Our annual energy trade gap was so big it had become a threat to the stability of the dollar.
But today, not only do we not have to spend $400 billion every year to get the energy we need, our oil and natural gas exports are making some Americans vastly wealthier.
And it’s time for you to join them!
THE “GODS OF GAS”
Before the end of this year, the first international end-to-end production and distribution deal for American shale gas will be struck by a leading “fracker” – a small, independent, oil and gas firm whose production is centered on the largest natural gas reserve in the world, the Marcellus Shale...
This Pittsburgh company, launched just over a decade ago by three brothers, could soon become the first super-major energy company to emerge from America’s shale resources.
This firm (which I’ll bet you’ve never heard of) has suddenly – virtually overnight – become the largest producer of U.S. natural gas.
It could soon be the world’s biggest and most important energy company.
Let me say that again…
A little company, started by three brothers at their kitchen table in Pittsburgh, could soon be one of the world’s most powerful energy companies.
That’s a bold claim, I realize. And you may find it hard to believe.
But just remember: No one believed me when I said the world’s largest mortgage bankers – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – would soon go bankrupt...
No one believed me when I said GM would soon be bankrupt as well... or that the same would happen to General Growth Properties (the biggest owner of mall properties in America)...
No one believed me when I explained why AT&T (the original long-distance company) would collapse because fiber optics was making bandwidth essentially free...
But again, that’s exactly what happened.
If you take one thing from this report, remember these words:
This company sits on a resource that’s so big and is growing production so much, I believe it will become the world’s most important energy company over the next decade.
The company’s growth over the last three years has been explosive...
After a long period of exploration and drilling, it has been able to ramp production and dramatically increase its margins through scale. It has also made a number of brilliant “bolt-on” acquisitions, gaining additional reserves and pipelines.
Here are the numbers...
In 2019 the company was producing $250 million in free cash flow – profits that can be distributed to owners. Then, in 2020, the company virtually doubled to $495 million in cash flow. And in 2021, free cash flow grew 22% to $607 million.
But the real growth is still coming…
In the first half of 2022, the company returned $1.3 billion in capital to investors. And it raised its free cash flow estimate for the full year by 50% to $2.35 billion.
And that was before its most recent deal...
In early September the “Gods of Gas” announced an incredible deal to acquire about 15% more production, 11 years’ worth of additional reserves, and miles of valuable pipelines. The company didn’t add any debt, buying the assets for cash on hand and some stock.
On the heels of this latest deal, the company projected its share buyback for this year would double. We expect the company to produce more free cash flow over the next four years – $5 billion a year – than the value of the entire company today.
How is that possible?
How did three brothers from Pittsburgh take a small, regional, “also-ran” shale gas company and turn it into an economic engine that produces billions of free cash flow and is the largest producer of natural gas in the U.S.?
The brothers didn’t merely cut costs—they also struck a deal with an oil major.
A huge deal.
In the fall of 2020, the pandemic sent oil and gas prices to multi-decade lows. This world-leading oil company wrote off its entire Marcellus investment. In fact, it took an $8 billion write-off.
So, the “Gods of Gas” paid only $735 million for the oil major’s entire Marcellus operations.
They practically stole it!
The deal worth 800,000 acres assures the brothers’ publicly traded company will remain the dominant provider of Marcellus natural gas for decades.
Remember Maura Healey and her snowflake pals in Boston? The “Gods of Gas” could solve their problems in an instant. Massachusetts is just a few hundred miles from the Marcellus.
But whether or not the Boston Blackout results in a new pipeline, or more LNG exported from the U.S gulf region, or both… it doesn’t really matter.
If the world wants to have reliable electricity without burning coal, natural gas is the only proven energy source that’s reliable and affordable.
There is no other real-world solution.
(Don’t tell the snowflakes.)
How much natural gas could the “Gods of Gas” eventually produce?
The company currently claims 23 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in “proven” reserves. That would put it in the top 30 in the world (ahead of Mexico, Yemen and Brazil) if it were a country.
But the truth is, no one really knows for sure how much more natural gas will be recovered because as drilling technology improves, the amount of gas that’s recoverable continues to grow – a lot.
Scientists from Penn State University now claim over 400 trillion cubic feet of gas is recoverable in the Marcellus basin. But these estimates have been increasing over time, from 2 trillion 20 years ago, to 84 trillion 10 years ago… to 97 trillion most recently.
These increases aren’t related to how much natural gas is in the rocks, but rather from technology’s ability to extract it profitably.
In that regard, this company has always been a market leader. The company’s proven reserves have doubled since 2016. It owns over a million acres in the Marcellus. That’s more than a quarter of the size of Connecticut.
It’s a safe bet that the company’s reserves will continue to grow for decades.
To put this into context, the Marcellus probably contains more natural gas than all the other natural gas producing areas in the U.S., combined.
The Marcellus, alone, probably contains more natural gas than every other producing nation except Russia, Iran, and Qatar.
The Marcellus isn’t just a big gas field. It’s one of the largest reservoirs of energy in the world. And this company is the best operator, with the most production, and the biggest reserves...
Its development will not only change the U.S. economy, but it will also reshape the global energy map for the rest of our lives.
No one will produce more natural gas from the Marcellus, or in America for the next 30 years, at least.
What does this mean for you, in dollars and cents?
A company like this one, that’s producing free cash flows of $5 billion annually with a proven growth strategy, should be worth at least $100 billion – that’s around four times more than the stock’s current total market value.
And that’s a conservative projection.
It’s based on an average price of gas below $4 per mcf (currently prices are over $5.50 per mcf). It’s also based on the company not making any more meaningful acquisitions, which it almost certainly will do...
And there’s the possibility of vastly higher profits if, as the company has said it will, it invests in building its own LNG facilities and pipelines to reach the global markets for natural gas, where prices are typically well above $10 per mcf.
That’s why I wouldn’t be surprised to see the “Gods of Gas” earn returns of 10x or more over the next 10 years.
This is a great investment – as good as an investment as I have ever found in my 25-year career.
But it isn’t even my best idea to profit from the global growth in demand for natural gas...
There’s a company that has even more upside – because it’s only beginning to assemble its acreage and build its pipelines and LNG facilities.
The best part? Its founder is the man who started the entire LNG boom in the United States, building the first independent (non-major oil company) LNG export facility in 2010-2014 – and a stock that has gone from around $5 to over $150.
Now he’s about to do it again...
THE EMERGING LNG GIANT
Currently there are only eight LNG export terminals in the U.S.
These are where natural gas comes in from a pipeline, it gets liquefied, stored, and transferred to LNG ships for export to other countries.
The newest LNG export terminal is Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass in Louisiana – and it’s privately owned. There are, however, two other new LNG plants that are approved and currently under construction...
These are both publicly traded via the companies that own them. One belongs to a partnership between super-major oil company ExxonMobil and Qatar. Called “Golden Pass,” it’s located along the Gulf coast at Sabine Pass, Texas.
You can, of course, invest in ExxonMobil (which includes their ESG initiatives, unfortunately). But it’s such a huge company, that even if this new LNG facility is a bonanza, it probably won’t “move the needle” for Exxon’s share price.
But the other new, fully-permitted LNG facility that’s being built is owned by a small company – a start-up, whose founder, as I mentioned, has experience building greenfield LNG facilities...
This new company has a unique business model that’s designed solely to serve international markets for energy.
Its plan is to acquire natural gas wells in the Haynesville shale (in northeast Louisiana) and transport that production via pipeline to a new LNG plant it’s building on the Gulf Coast. The pipeline and LNG plant is a $12 billion piece of energy infrastructure that has the potential to become one of the most valuable energy infrastructure facilities in the world.
It’s going to be financed, in part, from its own natural gas production. And, most likely, the project will be purchased, even before completion, by a super major, like Shell, which has spent 50 years developing LNG assets all around the world.
Such a deal could lead to huge profits for investors in a very short amount of time.
Of course, this kind of an investment isn’t like buying the “Gods of Gas.” This is still a very small company. Its share price is going to be very volatile; moves up or down of 50% or more won’t be unusual, as prices for natural gas change, as prices for LNG change, and as financing options for the facility materialize.
The next big move for the stock could come when the company announces funding for the next phase of the project. I’m confident they can get this done.
As I mentioned, the ownership group is led by the founder of a company I’ve followed closely and recommended at different times for over 10 years. This founder knows LNG export business on the Gulf better than anyone.
Plus, one of the other major shareholders is Paulson & Co., a hedge fund I respect tremendously. John Paulson is one of the best investors of the last 30 years and I’ve followed his investing for much of that time. He’s been buying shares since this company started construction.
How much money could this company be worth, over the long term? If I told you I believe this company will be worth at least $100 billion in ten years, over 60x what it’s worth right now, I’m sure you wouldn’t believe me. But I think that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
Let me explain why…
WHY AMERICA IS THE NEXT QATAR
What’s the richest country in the world on a per capita basis?
Lots of people would guess Saudi Arabia. Or maybe Kuwait. Or the United Arab Emirates.
But it’s none of those countries – it’s Qatar.
Qatar was a relatively poor country until the early 2000s, with a GDP below $10 billion.
However, beginning in 1997, Qatar began to quietly dominate the world’s global trade in LNG. Qatar shares a huge offshore natural gas field with Iran, known as the North Field.
The field is an enormous resource—one of the world’s largest proven natural gas fields, with reserves of at least 896 trillion cubic feet (tcf). But Qatar didn’t begin exporting natural gas in large quantities until 1997.
Within ten years, Qatar was the world’s largest LNG supplier. Today, Qatar has eight massive LNG “trains” and six even larger “mega-trains,” which can liquify huge volumes of natural gas for shipment on specialized LNG tankers. Qatar is investing another $30 billion in a massive North Field expansion, which will reportedly increase production by 40% by 2025.
The results of these investments are hard to believe.
Qatar’s GDP grew from $9 billion annually in 1996 to over $200 billion in 2014. Qatar’s economy grew 21-fold in less than 20 years.
The nation’s sovereign wealth fund now tops $400 billion, making it one of the world’s largest capital pools. With only 300,000 citizens, Qatar has a per capita GDP of $686,000, and more than $1 million for each citizen in its sovereign wealth fund.
That’s the kind of wealth America could be sitting on. Which sounds outrageous, I realize.
Until you run the numbers.
The U.S. began exporting significant quantities of natural gas in the early 2000s via pipelines to Mexico...
As U.S. production grew, thanks to shale gas development, exports increased rapidly.
Exports grew from less than half a billion cubic feet daily in the early 2000s... to over two billion cubic feet daily in 2015...
During that time, in 2009, the U.S. became the world’s largest natural gas producer.
Since 2015, total export growth – which includes pipeline and LNG - has been parabolic... – from two billion cubic feet daily to over eighteen billion cubic feet daily.
In March 2022, U.S. LNG exports set a new daily record of 11.9 billion cubic feet, which is about 22% of the world’s current demand.
By the end of 2022, when the new Calcasieu Pass LNG export facility comes fully online, America will have the most LNG export capacity in the world—surpassing Qatar.
But these are just baby steps.
America only exported more gas via LNG than by pipeline for the first time in 2021. And so far, none of the major “frackers” have vertically integrated their gas production with their own LNG distribution networks. There’s no direct link between America’s giant shale gas fields and global markets – not yet.
But that’s exactly what both the “Gods of Gas” and the Gulf Coast LNG project are doing, right now. And it’s those Qatar-like returns that I believe investors in those companies will capture – if you act now.
So… how can you get my full report?
How can you start investing in opportunities like these?
How to Join the World’s Most Elite Investment Group: Porter & Co.
Have you ever seen investment research like this before? An utterly thorough and exhaustive explanation of a major investment theme, from the big, global picture all the way down to the financials of the companies leading the sector?
There aren’t many firms in the world, outside of “captured” research teams inside billion-dollar hedge funds, banks and private equity firms that produce research like this, that’s original, proprietary… and incredibly valuable.
But it’s the only thing I’ve done, for my entire career.
As I mentioned, I started my first financial advisory (Porter Stansberry’s Investment Advisory) over two decades ago.I spent 22 years building it into a million-subscriber, multi-brand, financial publishing platform called Stansberry Holdings.
In the process, I traveled the world and interviewed hundreds of incredible entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders – everyone from Craig Venter (who cracked the human genome at Celera Genomics) to Jim Rogers (co-founder of the Quantum Fund with George Soros) to James Grant (a financial writer hero of mine).
In December 2020, I retired to allow my firm to continue growing as a public company. Renamed “MarketWise,” my old firm went public in July 2021, in a $3 billion NASDAQ IPO.
While I’m proud of the business that I built (I continue to be among the largest individual shareholders), I prefer the independence of running my own small shop…
That’s why Porter & Co.’s international headquarters is in an office over top of my tractor barn. I get to work with a small group of friends, some of whom I have known since high school. Nobody gets to tell me what I can and can’t write… and I don’t have to meet any demands for growth. We have zero meetings.
We work together – literally all sitting next to each other in a converted hay loft – researching and publishing major investment ideas…
I’m talking about big themes that will last a decade or longer.
We only want ideas that we believe are way ahead of the market and that our readers will not find anywhere else.
The Gods of Gas and the Gulf Coast LNG export story I just told you about are quintessential “Porter Stories.” This is what I’m talking about when I say “major investment theme”…
Oil and gas is a sector I know very well. I was the first financial writer to break the story of the Eagle Ford – the first major shale oil field in the U.S.
“I expect Eagle Ford to yield more than $2 billion in oil and gas by 2013 and to increase steadily for at least 20 years. These numbers mean Eagle Ford will probably produce hundreds of billions worth of oil and gas over the next 30-40 years.”
The Eagle Ford went from producing virtually no oil in 2009 to producing a million barrels of oil, per day by 2013.
With oil trading around $100 a barrel, that meant the Eagle Ford was producing $100 million dollars’ worth of oil every day… or $36.5 billion worth of oil a year.
The Eagle Ford is still producing oil at those rates today, too.
That shale field, and others like it that I wrote about over the years, completely changed the global landscape of the energy business. These resources led directly to America becoming a net energy exporter.
And, right now, I think what’s happening in American energy is one of the most important economic stories in history.
Here’s where the rubber meets the road in all this for you: By following these major themes, that evolve over several years, retail investors have the best opportunity to make sustainable market-crushing returns…
I’m not interested, personally, in finding a single small stock that’s going to go up a little next week.
I want to find a company I can invest in for years and years – a company that can generate real wealth.
The kind of wealth I can depend on… I can plan on… and that can sustain my family for decades.
If that kind of wealth is something you’re interested in pursuing with me, I sincerely hope you’ll join me as a Founding Member of Porter & Co.
But… before you sign up… I want to talk about one more important idea that every energy investor should know: there’s a way to own the energy – but not the production companies…
There’s a way to separate the cash flows from the overhead and the risks. It’s a secret that I learned from T. Boone Pickens.
HOW TO GET ALL THE PROFIT, BUT NONE OF THE HASSLE
I was very fortunate to meet T. Boone Pickens in 2014, about five years before his death.
We saw eye to eye about a lot of things in the oil business. And I had several very memorable hunts at his enormous ranch in Roberts County, Texas. He was a generous friend and a genius at business.
The most important thing he taught me was that producing energy is tough and risky and requires huge capital investments over decades. There’s a much better way to do it…
In 1979, T. Boone Pickens created the first publicly traded “master limited partnership” or MLP. His MLP would own the mineral rights lying underneath his operating company’s land (Mesa Petroleum) ...
Mesa Petroleum would later end up insolvent and avoided bankruptcy only by a deal to sell itself for pennies on the courthouse steps to Richard Rainwater, who unkindly threw T. Boone out of the company.
But the Mesa MLP survives to this day (it's up 138% this year) and continues to pay a handsome stream of dividends (currently indicated at a yield of 23%) to its shareholders...
It owns the mineral rights underneath several huge oil and gas fields in Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. T. Boone’s revolutionary idea was to separate the income streams from proven and operating fields from the costs of finding and developing additional fields.
These kinds of royalty-holding companies still exist today, and the best one on the market is a leading royalty holder in the Permian Basin, which is America’s most prolific oil field.
T. Boone created the first energy trusts primarily for tax reasons, but the advantages of these kinds of structures go well beyond tax benefits.
The key to understanding these businesses is that they don’t have to pay any of the production costs or take any of the developmental risks...
They own the mineral rights, and all capital and operating expenses lie with the operator. And that means, as inflation continues to drive energy prices higher, the mineral rights they’ve acquired in the past become more and more valuable.
These royalty companies can make investing in oil and gas much safer. They transform a capital-intensive industry into a capital-efficient business that’s virtually guaranteed to produce increasing returns across time. In fact, these “companies” aren’t really businesses at all...
They are just a legal fiction that generates enormous wealth by separating the value of the resource from the risk and expense of production. Well-run mineral rights businesses are truly one of Wall Street’s greatest secrets.
How profitable can these investments be? Well, the leading Permian Basin royalty company has averaged an incredible 77% free cash flow margin over the last five years.
Since going public in 2014, the Permian’s leading royalty company production figures have grown nearly 10-fold, from average daily volumes of 3,000 barrels of oil equivalent (“BOE”) eight years ago to 28,000 last year.
Investors have reaped the benefits, with the stock outperforming the broader energy sector by a factor of 3.5 to 1 since its inception as a public company. This is an incredibly efficient and safer way to own a huge stake in America’s most prolific oil field.
The company owns mineral rights spanning across 930,871 gross acres, with over 9,000 producing wells.
BUY THE PERMIAN, NOW
During past oil bear markets, including 2016 and 2020, the Permian suffered a shallower decline and faster recovery compared with America’s other leading basins, the Eagle Ford and the Bakken...
And only the Permian has reclaimed new highs in output during each subsequent recovery, compared with the Bakken and Eagle Ford, which both remain below their production peaks reached back in 2014...
Going beyond oil, the Permian also hosts one of America’s largest deposits of low-cost natural gas. Over the last decade, explosive growth in gas production has made the Permian into America’s second-largest gas basin, trailing only the Marcellus formation in the Appalachian shale:
Today, the Permian is America’s largest low-cost oil basin, producing over 5 million barrels per day.
And this royalty company continues to grow, by continuously buying more mineral rights on proven oil fields. Reserves have grown by an incredible 7-fold from 18 million BOE in 2014 to 128 million at the end of 2021.
The best part of this company, given the current volatility in the stock market, is that it offers remarkable resilience against the inherent volatility of oil and gas prices.
The cash flow statements for most commodity producers plunge deep into negative territory during commodities bear markets because the prices of the things they sell go down, while operating costs and capital expenditures remain stubbornly high.
But this business model is designed to be immune from this defect. The following chart shows how this royalty company sailed through the 2020 energy price collapse with barely more than a blip in its cash flow trajectory...
In other words, this royalty company provides all the upside from higher energy prices, with only a fraction of the downside compared with traditional oil explorers and producers.
For such a compelling business model, you would expect the stock to command an extremely high valuation premium. And yet, with a market capitalization of roughly $5 billion, the company trades at less than 10x free cash flow today.
The best part? Without needing to recycle earnings back into expensive equipment and other operating costs, that cash flows right back to investors. That’s how the company pays out a current distribution of $3.24 annualized, for a yield of nearly
No, this company probably won’t see 10x growth over the next few years – though that’s not impossible. What is very likely is market-beating returns and consistently high dividend yields.
Most investors need income to live on, and this is the energy investment that will provide it – safely – while still also generating market-beating returns.
