Policy Matters

Mar 28, 2018

Recent years have seen huge increases in American oil and gas production, with dramatic consequences for the U.S. economy and international energy markets. How has this new production affected global prices? Will it alter the relationship between the United States and traditional energy producers, particularly in the Middle East? And how have concerns about climate change affected energy policies in producing countries, notably Saudi Arabia?

In this episode, Jim Krane, the Wallace S. Wilson Fellow for Energy Studies at the Baker Institute, discusses the American energy revolution, the response of OPEC and traditional producers, and how global energy politics may be changing.
