Past Event

April 12, 2013

8:00 am - 10:00 am

Please join the Harriman Institute for a talk by Thane Gustafson, Georgetown University. Two decades after the end of the Soviet Union, the legacy of Soviet-era oil assets is beginning to run down. The next generation of Russian oil will be more demanding and higher-cost. This has serious implications for the Russian state, which depends on oil revenues as never before. Is there a crisis ahead, or will higher global prices, arctic offshore, and/or US-style “tight oil” come to the rescue? WHEEL OF FORTUNE: THE BATTLE FOR OIL AND POWER IN RUSSIA (Harvard University Press, October 2012, Electronic books are available for Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, Google, and in PDF. Watch the video trailer at http://youtube/_qUm3ploCOE. Co-sponsored by the Center on Global Energy Policy, School of International & Public Affairs. This event is free and open to the public.
