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.”
There have been concerns that investors who own BHP shares but do not currently hold Woodside may seek to dump the Woodside shares they will be issued in the deal.
A second drilling rig, a second floating production platform and a gas pipeline are being considered for the next phase.
Analysts said investors' shift away from environmental priorities partly reflects concerns as the war in Ukraine has tightened energy supplies.
