10 Oil Experts To Follow On Twitter
Want an edge on oil? Try this.
It seems like oil is getting more volatile every day, and with whales like the Rockefeller family and Warren Buffett pulling out of their fossil fuel investments, investors are wondering who they should be listening to.
It can be hard to wade through the sea (or oilfield?) of information about the industry.
That’s why Benzinga has put together a list of 10 oil watchers -- from businessmen and investors to journalists and researchers -- that everyone interested in oil should follow on Twitter to make sure they stay up-to-date on the most recent news in the oil and gas sector.
1) T. Boone Pickens, Business Magnate & BP Capital Management Chairman (@boonepickens)
A former corporate raider of oil and gas companies, no one knows the sector quite like Boone Pickens. Pickens interacts with many other Twitter users and posts links often. He might even answer your question if you use the #AskBoone hashtag.
Rig count down 87 more this wk.Fastest drop in rigs I can recall. @BarackObama, is now the time to hit industry w/ $95 bil 10 yr tax bill?

2) Jonathan Fahey, Energy Reporter for The Associated Press (@JonathanFahey)
Journalists digest and share a lot of information, so they’re incredibly useful to include in your Twitter feed. Jonathan Fahey’s Twitter is full of tweets not just of his own articles, but myriad retweets of the work of others.

3) Chris Nelder, Policy Officer at the Global Footprint Network (@nelderini)
Nelder is the co-author of “Profit from the Peak: The End of Oil and the Greatest Investment Event of the Century,” and his tweets are honest and well-researched. He doesn’t mind being the contrarian, either.
It will take a few more months before the reduced US rig count shows up in production data. Seems many people don't understand that.
