Global Hot Spots & Policy Challenges

Tuesday, March 12

11:35 am - 12:35 pm

Geopolitical turbulence surrounding recent events in countries such as Ukraine, Russia, Syria, Iran, Yemen, and Venezuela create conundrums for energy companies and investors. Oil and gas are entwined with all these hot spots. How has US energy abundance afforded policy makers and global energy markets more options amidst this instability? How do policy makers align objectives with energy policy tools, including sanctions? What are the implications for energy industry strategies and markets? How can policy initiatives encourage greater energy sector cooperation and investment in the Middle East and Asia?
