The Center on Global Energy Policy will host the first of the Energy Journalism Initiative Extra series, an expansion of the Energy Journalism Initiative in which energy and environment journalists learn about energy and environmental issues from experts in government, industry and academia. EJI Extra will offer educational deep dives open to journalists covering energy and the environment from print, online and broadcast media.
The first EJI Extra session will focus on energy markets forensics. Katherine Spector, an independent consultant with ProSpector Energy Advisors, will discuss how to analyze oil and natural gas price moves not only in the context of physical supply/demand fundamentals, COVID-19 and geopolitical headlines, but also taking into consideration more nuanced clues involving timing, value and various other macroeconomic factors. Following her presentation, Spector will be joined by Bill Loveless, Director of the Energy Journalism Initiative, for a moderated conversation.
Ms. Spector is a long-time energy market analyst, having spent 15+ years producing thought-leading research at major banks, JPMorgan Chase, Deutsche Bank and CIBC World Markets. She was responsible for the banks’ energy price forecasts and market views, and she produced analysis of global energy supply-demand fundamentals, price behavior, market structure and geopolitical risks. Earlier in her career, she was an editor at Oil Market Intelligence at the Energy Intelligence Group.
