Webinar: The Continuing Saga of Petroleum in 2020

This year began with WTI crude near $65 per barrel. Following an oil price war and a pandemic-induced demand shock, prices have seen unprecedented volatility, and the energy narrative has tilted toward “new normals,” “green recoveries” and a “peak in oil demand.” However, economic and political uncertainties abound, casting long shadows over the future of the global oil market and geopolitics. At this webinar, a panel of experts from the Center for Energy Studies discussed these uncertainties and the implications for future market balance.
