11 January 2021
Recorded on 22 October 2020, Dan Pickering, Founder & Chief Investment Officer at Pickering Energy Partners, joins us to talk about Pickering Energy Partners’ spin off from Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. back in 2019 and how the firm remains bullish on Oil & Gas as they expect there to be a lot of transaction activity in the market as the current downcycle sorts itself out. During this episode, Dan walks us through where he sees potential for future upside, what types of opportunities he will be looking to target and how this fits into PEP’s strategy. Dan also explains why 2020, although being a difficult time to be an energy investor, is a great time to be building a business.
