GCC Countries in the New Oil World

Past Event

January 28, 2016

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The collapse of oil prices since mid-2014 has shaken many of the cornerstones of the oil markets. For decades, oil-importing countries have relied on the oil-producing economies of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to balance the global market. At the same time, oil has financed the rapid development of the GCC nations, and, as such, the modern history of oil and the Middle East cannot be disentangled. But the oil market has not been standing still. As part of its efforts to help improve understanding of the challenging issues emerging from the new oil world, please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a discussion of the global market, domestic economic and geopolitical considerations facing the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries with a distinguished set of experts:

 – Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy

 – Bassam Fattouh, Director, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies

 – F. Gregory Gause, III, John H. Lindsey ’44 Chair, Professor of International Affairs and Head of the International Affairs Department, Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University

 – Amos Hochstein, Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs, Bureau of Energy Resources, U.S. Department of State

 – Adnan Shihab-Eldin, Director General, Kuwait Foundation for Advancement of Sciences

 – Adam Sieminski, Administrator, US Energy Information Administration

Registration is required. This event is open to press. It will also be livestreamed at:

A podcast of this event (in addition to other past Center events) will be available ~5 days after the date of the event through iTunes or via our website.
