Implications for Global Markets and Asia, the Middle East, Russia, and Europe

The CSIS Energy and National Security Program hosted Fereidun Fesharaki, Chairman of FACTS Global Energy, to discuss the changing U.S. role in the energy landscape. The emergence of the U.S. as a growing oil and gas producer has surprised the energy world.  The backdrop of changes in supply from other regions, persistent supply disruptions, growing demand for natural gas and oil, raises the question of the future role of the U.S. in global markets  and the implications for other major producers and consumers. David Pumphrey, Senior Adviser in the CSIS Energy and National Security Program, moderated.

Fereidun Fesharaki is chairman of FACTS Global Energy (FGE). FGE is a leading consulting group focusing on the oil and gas markets east of the Suez, in Europe, and in the United States, with offices in London, Singapore, Dubai, Hawaii, Beijing, Tokyo, Perth, New York, California, and Jakarta. Dr. Fesharaki’s work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis and studies of the Asia-Pacific and Middle East energy markets since the early 1980s. Dr. Fesharaki is also a Senior Associate of the CSIS Energy and National Security Program.
