Gas Oil Geopolitics/Energy Policy/Economics

US Energy Abundance & Geopolitics

Monday, March 11

07:30 pm - 09:00 pm

Shale oil and gas are making the United States the world’s biggest producer of hydrocarbons. Is American energy abundance shattering the precepts of global energy geopolitics? Will OPEC continue to exist? Will US supplies affect relations between Saudi Arabia and Russia and their roles in energy markets? Can China, as the world’s biggest oil importer, influence geopolitical dynamics with its suppliers?
