Fueling our Future: Mid East Energy and Politics

Monday, October 23, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

The last three years have proven tumultuous for energy producers in the Middle East. In 2014, OPEC elected to maintain production levels, while the US shale revolution drove prices down to new lows. OPEC’s most recent decision to work with Russia and other non-OPEC countries to curtail production has created only a minimal rebound. Most of the region’s economies continue to endure economic weakness as a result of the extended price drop, with significant implications for social and political stability. To add to these challenges, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar in June, creating perhaps the worst diplomatic crisis to hit Gulf Arab states in decades. The embargo remains, affecting Qatar’s energy trade and raising questions about shifting regional relationships, particularly between Qatar and Iran. CGA Academic Director Carolyn Kissane will examine these issues and others in a fascinating panel discussion on the geopolitics of energy in the Middle East.
