New Global Energy Order: Will Russia and Eurasia Adapt?
Panelists: Dr. Edward Chow, Center for Strategic and International Studies & Dr. Harley Balzer, Georgetown University Moderated by Dr. Judy Twigg, Virginia Commonwealth University & Center for Strategic and International Studies Are Russia, Eurasia and China ready for the new global energy order? The consensus among OPEC countries is that China will become the growth market for petroleum, and that this represents a fundamental shift in the geopolitics of oil. How have Russia and its Eurasian neighbors responded to this imperative? Do these countries agree that Chinese demand will soon represent the key source of demand for energy? Edward Chow, Senior Fellow at the CSIS Energy and National Security Program will discuss how state and industry understand the future of global energy markets, and the difficulty they have had in modernizing their production and export strategies.
