Oil Market Rebalancing: The Resilience of U.S. Output and the Role of Financials

May 20, 2015 • 5:00 – 6:30 pm EDT

The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host a roundtable discussion on recent oil market developments and what to expect going forward. 10 months into the oil price collapse and despite the recent price rebound, companies of all sizes continue to adjust to the new economic, financial, and geopolitical realities. In the United States, the largest source of incremental oil supply growth globally over the past several years, output has remained remarkably resilient. That said, evidence of a slowdown continues, though the impact is likely to be uneven.

Featured discussions will examine and interpret these developments, and discuss the implications for oil markets going forward.
