Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a presentation with author Vahan Zanoyan on Storytelling and the Geopolitics of Petroleum, based on his novel on his latest book The Sacred Sands. Mr. Zanoyan uses his decades of experience in the energy sector as an adviser to oil companies, governments, investors and traders to write a gripping novel that takes the reader inside the Middle Eastern oil industry and regional geopolitics. Following his presentation in which he will explain the evolution of oil industry and, in particular, geopolitics of Middle East oil, we will move to a moderated discussion. This event is only open to students. Since space is limited, RSVPs will be accepted on a first-come basis until capacity is reached. Please only RSVP if you can commit to attending. Lunch will be provided.
