PUF's Steve Mitnick: You are one of the faces of the U.S. energy industry internationally. I'm sure there's been a lot of talk about political changes in the U.S. with the election and the new administration, including its impact on energy. Do you have any thoughts about what you've been hearing and the questions people have been asking?
