The last several years have been tough in the downturn and have made the survivors stronger. We have talked about the ESG and fiscal responsibilities of the E&P companies in the United States changing for the better. The survivors are listening to their investors and market data. Myself included.
Budgets and business plans rely on good data, and great people to implement the data-based plans. To look at the 2022 business plan for King Operating, we must check our 2021 performance vs. predictions. Our performance was on track and set up the King Operating Corporation for an outstanding 2022. Our operations team had tough goals and increased production all along the way even with tough obstacles thrown at them.
Our financial team looked at world geopolitical issues, supply, demand, energy policies, and many indices that are sometimes overlooked by some in the industry. In 2021 there have been several key data points that resonate.
“As energy prices across the globe rise, many observers and pundits continue to downplay the possibility of a global energy supply crisis, often citing OPEC+ spare capacity as the panacea. The perception that OPEC+ is flush with spare capacity is pervasive. But due to a lack of reliable data and no formal reporting or verification requirements, many industry experts and analytics firms have adopted OPEC+’s self-reported numbers. No one knows exactly how much spare production capacity OPEC+ really has, and few seem interested, despite the potential implications.” -Josh Young, CIO of Bison Interests.

The Bottom Line
“Data, decisions, and performance matter. Making your decisions based upon data helps your team perform and execute your plans.” – Jay R. Young, CEO, King Operating Corporation.
The King Operating Corporation Team had a good year in performance and did a fantastic job with preparation to exceed all expectations for 2022 performance. We made decisions last year with data, and that data is holding true for our financial modeling. The King Operating I, LP fund is about to close and our return to our investors is right on track to perform as projected. As we have new projects, new funds, and new investors on the horizon, our 2022 is looking like it will be exceptionally profitable for our investors.
Our data is showing that oil and gas prices are going up, and to what level has a lot of variables. For Q1 of 2022, we will be above $90 and on the way to above $100 in Q2. We will have other reports coming out with supporting data.
