Energy influence from editorial depth Reliability in commodity price indexes 


Leadership means giving back


North America has led the world in the deregulation of natural gas markets, and was in the forefront of electric power market development as well. American refiners played a significant role in the development of clean motor fuels. I have had a front row seat to these events as a journalist.


This site comprises newsletters I have been created and stories I have written. You'll also find examples of index data and special publications like books and convention newspapers. 


I have touched many sectors and accumulated many contacts. I want to help you succeed in the energy business. 


I am not selling anything on this site, promoting any services or advancing a point of view. I welcome your comments. You can contact me at 1-240-460-7243 or by email. I sometimes address some timelier topics on LinkedIn

Natural gas and power editorial is my business.
And it can only be supported by trust,   
so I have built relationships for decades.
Here are some samples of my work. 

My name is David Givens and I have been a business to business journalist for more than 30 years. Since 1990 I have launched print and digital products in the North American energy sector.

I may be best known for creating the system for price indexation for natural gas in North America while I was at Gas Daily. But I have also helped start Megawatt Daily, covered refined products at Hart Energy Publishing and written a book about natural gas price risk management.
