The CSIS Energy and National Security Program hosted Tatiana Mitrova, Head of Oil and Gas Department, Energy Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, for an off-the-record discussion on the Russian energy sector. This session was particularly timely given the current state of affairs, including newly emergent Western sanctions against Russia, the finalization of a natural gas supply deal between Russia and China that was decades in the making, and the potential and perceived global implications of increased U.S. unconventional oil and gas.

Dr. Mitrova discussed how these current geopolitical events may impact global energy markets and market players as well as how these events could influence Russia’s future energy outlook. Dr. Mitrova is a leading analyst of Russia’s energy sector and the global energy markets.  She has extensive experience in evaluating and modeling developments in the Russian energy markets, including production, transportation, demand, energy policy, and regional or global implications.
