On  February  25,  2014,  Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy  (CGEP) and the Baker Institute’s Center for Energy Studies hosted a roundtable on the implications of the U.S. crude oil export ban and the prospects for reform. The roundtable is part of a CGEP study on U.S. oil export policy, a collaboration with Trevor Houser of  the Rhodium Group and  Ken  Medlock  of  the  Baker  Institute,  which  will  be  a  comprehensive  analysis  of  the economic and geopolitical implications of a shift in policy relative to the status quo. Energy leaders from government, industry, banking, and academia participated in a discussion of light  tight  oil  production,  refining  economics,  regulations,  U.S.  and  international  oil markets,  and  major  avenues  for  industry  and  policymakers  to  respond  to  increasing domestic supply.
