Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the release and presentation of a new report, Navigating the U.S. Oil Export Debate, authored by Center Founding Director Jason Bordoff and Rhodium Group Partner Trevor Houser. The report, a collaboration between the Center on Global Energy Policy and the Rhodium Group, reviews the origin and current form of US crude export restrictions and analyzes the energy market, economic, security, geopolitical, trade and environmental implications of modifying or lifting those restrictions.

Following a presentation of the study’s main findings, Thomas E. Donilon, former National Security Advisor and a member of the Center on Global Energy Policy’s Advisory Board, will provide remarks and engage in a moderated discussion with Jason Bordoff about current issues in energy geopolitics, including the US oil export debate. Following Mr. Donilon’s remarks, Jonathan Leff, Global Commodities Editor at Reuters, will moderate a discussion about US oil exports with:

  • Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy;
  • Colin Fenton, Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy and former Global Head of Commodities Research at J.P. Morgan
  • Trevor Houser, Partner, Rhodium Group;
  • Ken Medlock, Fellow in Energy and Resource Economics and senior director of the Center for Energy Studies, Baker Institute for Public Policy, Rice University;
  • Adrian Lajous, Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy and former CEO of Pemex; and
  • Amb. Carlos Pascual, Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy and former Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy affairs, US Department of State.
