Opinion: Political Climate Shifting Against The Oil And Gas Industry

Green Car Congress

Oil and gas companies have had a tough time over the past year trying to weather the storm of falling oil prices. But the political and financial winds are moving in the wrong direction for the industry, raising more “above ground” problems at a time that they can ill-afford it. Drilling oil and gas wells requires a lot of money. Put another way, about 12 percent of all loans to oil and gas companies are rated “substandard” or worse. by Nick Cunningham of Oilprice.com.
