Trump's shifts on offshore drilling, biofuels ahead of November
In this two-part episode, we look at how both US presidential candidates' energy platforms have evolved since the start of campaigning.
They have had to respond to massive market shifts, a string of natural disasters signaling a changing climate, and waning poll numbers in key states.
In Part 1, we look at President Donald Trump's platform with Dan Eberhart, a Republican donor and CEO of Canary, a Denver-based drilling services company.
We ask Eberhart about Trump's recent actions to ban drilling offshore Florida, placate biofuel producers in the Midwest, distance himself from the climate concerns surrounding this year's wildfires and hurricane seasons, and lend rhetorical support to oil and gas producers.
We also debut the Market Minute segment, a look at near-term oil market drivers with Platts editor Chris van Moessner.
Watch for Part 2 tomorrow on Democratic challenger Joe Biden's move to the left with Rapidan Energy Group's Glenn Schwartz.
