Webinar: Pandemic, Price War and the World Petroleum Market

A historic drop in demand for oil resulting from the reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic and a price war between two of the world’s largest energy producers — Saudi Arabia and Russia — are having a profound impact on global petroleum markets. There are critical uncertainties affecting the investments and operations of producers everywhere, with many seeking insights on the depth and duration of the current situation and what could change in the coming weeks and months. Energy markets across the board are being profoundly impacted, broad economic costs are being exacted and movements for political intervention are growing. At this free webinar, experts from the Center for Energy Studies discussed these unprecedented times and addressed some of the key uncertainties moving forward.
