Energy has long been the catalyst for economic growth in the
United States , and has now become a strategic factor in global geopolitics. There is a strong correlation between energy consumption and wealth among developed nations. As some of the world’s most populous countries, namely China and India, seek to narrow the gap between themselves and other giant energy consumers, such as the United States, challenges such as an unstable
Middle East and an ever-growing energy demand make energy geopolitics a critical issue to the future of the oil and gas industry.
The presentation will demonstrate the role and impact of geopolitics on the future of energy across the globe. All levels of industry are invited since this topic and speaker will affect CEOs and new engineers alike.
