BPC Energy Project Launches Discussion Series on the New Geopolitics of Petroleum and Natural Gas

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Energy Project is pleased to announce that it will convene four events this year as part of a discussion series on the new geopolitics of petroleum and natural gas.

Once thought to be limited, domestic resources, petroleum and natural gas from tight formations have dramatically changed the energy landscape here in the United States and abroad. These four events will examine the recent and emerging trends in global oil and natural gas production and how they impact energy markets, energy diplomacy, and economic growth. Through a moderated discussion format, the series is designed to foster interaction among industry executives, diplomats, market analysts, government officials, and environmental experts.

Former Senator and BPC Senior Fellow Pete V. Domenici (R-NM) will host each of the days’ events, which will include panels with remarks given by the invited speakers, followed by discussions moderated by David Goldwyn, president and founder of Goldwyn Global Strategies, LLC. Topics include:

  • The Geopolitical Impacts of the U.S. Tight Oil Boom: Implications for OPEC and the U.S. Strategic Posture
  • U.S. Shale Gas Boom: Implications on the U.S. Economy, Trade, and Geopolitics
  • Navigating the Oil Frontier: The Implications of the Tight Oil Boom on Arctic and Ultra-Deepwater Oil Development
  • Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: The Role of Natural Gas, Renewables, and Creative Climate Diplomacy

Once available, details of each event will be distributed electronically and posted to our website here. Feel free to join the conversation on Twitter, using #BPCEnergy.
