About the event

Presentation Information:

The goal will be to expore how traditional US Energy policy, reflects on US National Security and keeps in check, geopolitical risks for our allies. Then we will explore recent changes to US Energy policy and explore how these changes are driving down geopolitical security around the globe, leaving a vacuum of leadership, to be filled by our enemies.

Speaker Bio:

Tim Snyder is a degreed economist and works extensively in the applied field of economics. A graduate of Texas Tech University, Tim currently collaborates with Texas Tech’s College of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources, in the areas of Marketing and Policy. His extensive experience of over 35 years as an Applied Economist has provided a substantial background from which he draws.

His current work focus is Oil and Gas, Petroleum, Agriculture, Policy, and the Financial Markets, including both equities and commodities. The purpose of this, is to provide a more refined set of skills for his clients so they can understand the effects of changing economic conditions on consumer-sensitive markets.

Tim has been involved in the oil and gas industry since he graduated from Texas Tech. He has worked extensively with ethanol and biodiesel initiatives as fuel additives, and then, in all phases of production, transportation and marketing in the broader complex of petroleum and energy markets. Risk management has also been a major focus for Tim. Helping others understand the effects of recovering energy economy and the influence of macroeconomic factors is his daily charge, as recovery from the pandemic continues.

His company, Matador Economics, was founded in September of 2005 and his initial focus was on marketing and business development for energy and agriculture. After the financial crisis of 2008, Tim pivoted his business to focus on the broader spectrum of energy production and policy, distribution and marketing for crude oil and the refined products. Today, he publishes a daily and weekly commentary for subscribers.

“Matador Charts Abbreviated” is a quick look at energy commodity prices in chart form for technical analysis, and “Energy Brief Today” is his ‘Headline” daily commentary focusing on market moving fundamentals and policy initiatives that are driving energy markets today. Tim also publishes a weekly offering called “Weekly Quick Facts”.  This publication offers highlights from the Weekly Petroleum Status Report, US Energy Information Administration’s Weekly Gasoline and Diesel Retail Price Survey and the Baker Hughes Rig Count. The purpose of the weekly summary is to provide subscribers a weekly-ready reference on inventories, production, prices and much more.

Tim is currently published in several industry related magazines, online and in the print media. He also currently serves as an Energy Economist and expert guest for several radio programs across Texas and the US. He currently serves as co-host for a daily radio program in West Texas and the Permian Basin. And he has worked with the host on this program for more than 17 years.

In 2016, Tim moved to Dallas to be closer to his two sons and their families. While in Dallas, Tim accepted a position with City Bank as an economist, working in business development and currently also works with customers in the mortgage area as well. This is in addition to his Matador Economics responsibilities.

You can reach Tim by phone at (806) 441-7721, on email, or go visit his website at and subscribe to his commentaries.
