The war in Ukraine has completely upended the global energy system. Still, companies, governments and investors continue to charge ahead with renewable energy plans -- including renewable natural gas and hydrogen -- in the quest to bring down emissions and meet net zero targets.

Lithium is one of the key raw materials in the energy transition, and it is a byproduct of oil and gas production – a component of the salty brines that accompany hydrocarbon production. The oil and gas industry is increasingly exploring how to extract lithium from produced water. As oil and gas producers contemplate becoming lithium producers as well, raw materials traceability via digitized supply chains is receiving more attention from the extractive industries as well as manufacturers and governments. In this installment of NGI's Hub & Flow podcast, Jess Green of UK-based Circulor talks to NGI Associate Editor Matthew Veazey about the growing importance of traceability along the supply chain for lithium from the standpoint of environmental, social, and governance – or ESG – compliance.
Global demand for natural gas continues to skyrocket in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Helping to offset supply into Europe and Asia, demand for U.S. LNG exports have also risen, subsequently boosting natural gas prices at Henry Hub to +10-year highs.

With mounting export projects moving forward as quickly as possible across the U.S. and Mexico, will exploration & production in the Haynesville, Permian and Marcellus be able to feed these demand centers?
