More For Asia: The Changing Oil and Gas Trade and New Arenas For Competition
John Mitchell, Associate Fellow, Energy, Environment & Development Programme, Chatham House
Professor Paul Stevens, Senior Research Fellow, Energy, Environment & Development Programme, Chatham House
Chair: Dr Kerry Brown, Senior Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House
Europe and the United States can no longer rely on Middle East oil exports as the bulk of energy demand and investment shifts towards Asia, says a new Chatham House study. Author John Mitchell will explain what this means for international trade, energy security and political influence in the west. Paul Stevens who recently published a report on 'The Shale Gas Revolution' will discuss the impact of the unconventional gas phenomenon on these trends.
