Although oil and exploration companies are always subject to the effects of volatile market prices and an empty well, they should also take into consideration another risk that can profoundly affect the profitability of their ventures – weather.
Over the years, global warming has caused many companies to experience earnings fluctuations due to erratic weather. For instance, a summer that is unpredictably cooler may cause a decline in demand for energy for space cooling. Warmer winter months, on the other hand, may decrease energy demand for heating. These variations may cause price instability, which could impact a company’s bottom line.
