As we head into the winter, U.S. officials are worried about another spike in oil prices, and European nations are concerned about winter fuel shortages. What’s happening in global energy markets, and what are the main risks in the coming months?
At this event, industry experts explained the current balance of global supply and demand, as well as the risks for natural gas, crude oil and refined products — like gasoline, diesel fuel and heating oil. Panelists also examined the current status of Russian gas exports, the potential impact of proposed EU and U.S. sanctions (including an oil price cap) — and the prospect for Russian retaliation. Other questions discussed included:
- How will Saudi Arabia and other members of the OPEC+ group respond to these global changes?
- What is the status of global inventories of crude oil and refined products — including government “strategic” stockpiles — and natural gas?
- And critically, what policy measures are available to help the market cope with potentially massive disruptions?
Following opening remarks from the panelists, Mark Finley, the fellow in energy and global oil at the Baker Institute, moderated a discussion and an audience Q&A.
