Bernadette Johnson, vice president of strategic analytics for Enverus, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Johnson began her professional journey as a senior energy analyst at Bentek Energy LLC and later held the same title at Sasco Energy Partners LLC.
In 2012, just four years into her career, Johnson was given the opportunity to co-found Ponderosa Advisors LLC as a minority owner. She helped build the company into a successful energy analytics business that was sold in 2016 to Drillinginfo Inc., now known as Enverus.
“I always say it was luck as much as anything else, but when given the chance, I had the courage to jump in with both feet despite the risk and not knowing how it would play out,” Johnson recalls. “I am most proud of the success of the business both before and after acquisition.”
Numerous factors, including oil production, COVID-19 and infrastructure complicate the picture.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which oversees the federal government's oil and gas leasing program, did not give a reason for the delays.
More challenging years are ahead for the offshore drilling sector as E&P spending slows, energy intelligence firm says.
