These are chaotic times in the global energy sector, to put it mildly.
Here in the United States, we're in the grip of an acute oil and gas company debt crisis, as rising oil prices have come far too late to save leveraged companies that simply borrowed too much during the good times of expensive oil and cheap credit.
Elsewhere, last month's shock "Brexit" vote has upended foreign exchange, sending the euro and sterling into free fall relative to the dollar – the currency in which rapidly rebalancing crude oil is priced.
That same British vote has dealt a knockout blow to the City of London's tenure as the global capital of energy sector financing. Hundreds of billions of dollars are in play and are now on the hunt for a new place to call home.
But all this chaos and uncertainty brings with it opportunity. There are big changes coming to the way energy finance works, and right now there's a breakthrough underway in Europe that's proving more profitable than anyone could have imagined.
