The Future of North America-Asia Energy Trade

NBR hosted a Capitol Hill briefing on the findings of the 2013 Pacific Energy Summit on June 19, 2013, in Washington, D.C. At this briefing, top experts, policymakers, and industry leaders detailed the core themes of the Summit’s discussions, including:

  • The critical relationship between energy markets and economic development in Asia
  • The impact of the shale revolution on U.S.-Canada energy relations
  • The likely role of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Asia’s energy security strategies, and the outlook for natural gas to become a global commodity

  • The differing policy environments in the United States and Canada toward Asian energy investments in North America, and the implications for future trans-Pacific ties

  • Market and policy solutions for addressing the dual challenges of rising energy demand and climate change in the Asia-Pacific
