Recent events in Venezuela – from missed debt payments and calls for debt restructuring to the arrest of Citgo officials and the appointment of a general with no experience in the oil business as oil minister and head of state oil company PdVSA – signal an acceleration of the country’s crisis. Although President Nicolas Maduro consolidated his political power following the Constitutional Assembly election of July 31, the situation on the ground continues to spiral downwards. Accelerating oil production declines and recently-imposed US financial sanctions are muting the effect of recent oil price gains, even as the quality of Venezuelan crude exports becomes increasingly erratic. Meanwhile, the links between Caracas and Moscow appear to be deepening. To discuss these momentous developments, the CGEP is organizing a panel discussion featuring three experts on the country’s finances, economy, politics and oil industry: Francisco Monaldi, Rice University and Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy Luisa Palacios, Medley Global Advisors and Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy Miguel Angel Santos, Harvard University The discussion will be moderated by Antoine Halff, Sr Research Scholar and Director of Global Oil Markets at the Center on Global Energy Policy. Registration is required. A podcast of this event will be available ~5 days after the date of the event through iTunes and our website. This event is open to press.

As the world races to transition to cleaner energy sources, there exists a substantial gap between the financing required for this transition and the actual investments being made.
Today, Qatar is among the world’s wealthiest countries. Its rich hydrocarbon resources have transformed this small Gulf state into an energy powerhouse, funded its outsized global ambitions, and allowed it to forge an identity separate from those of its large and powerful neighbors.Purchase Book
