Dramatic developments are taking place in Asian energy markets with critical geopolitical, economic, and environmental implications. Energy demand is rising relentlessly across Asia, leading to increasing dependence on energy imports and a growing sense of energy insecurity among the major Asian powers. The United States has a major stake in preventing competition over energy and commodities from fueling regional strategic distrust or increasing market volatility.
To address these issues, NBR’s Energy Security Program convenes senior policy and industry leaders and Asia energy specialists to engage in high-level discussions of Asia’s energy policies and their implications for geopolitics. Experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including an invitation-only spring workshop, NBR’s annual Energy Security Report, and a public fall launch event.
2012 ENERGY SECURITY PRORAM: OIL AND GAS FOR ASIA
The 2012 Energy Security Program, "Oil and Gas for Asia," explores how Asia’s rising energy demand, coupled with angst over high prices and the reliability of future oil and LNG supplies, is shaping the strategic and economic agendas of Asia’s major powers. The program featured a high-level workshop on May 11 and held a Capitol Hill launch for this year’s Energy Security Report on September 20. For the third year in a row, NBR and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars co-hosted the spring workshop, and NBR was delighted to again partner with the Wilson Center for the fall event.
