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.
