EPRINC Hosts Workshop on the Scale and Scope of the North American Natural Gas Production Platform

            On April 19, 2018, the Energy Policy Research Foundation Inc. held a workshop at the Willard Hotel on the on the scale and prospective growth of the North American natural gas production platform. The workshop participants provided essential foundation information and analysis to expand our understanding of the role of U.S. natural gas as a supply source to meet both domestic requirements and to serve export markets.  As EPRINC begins the second year of our joint project with the Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) on the “Future of Asian LNG,” the findings from the workshop will expand our knowledge base on the potential for U.S. natural gas to serve the growing Asian market.

            The workshop participants addressed four themes; (i) the size and productive capacity of the North American natural gas resource base, (ii) regulatory constraints on moving natural gas to domestic and export markets, (iii) demand risks, and (iv) potential consequences to the cost structure of U.S. oil and gas production from ongoing trade disputes. More importantly, the workshop brought together a broad cross section of the Washington energy community and provided an informed discussion of the opportunities and challenges on the future of the natural gas resource base.

            The workshop benefitted from an excellent and well-experienced group of analysts, industry experts and policy makers. Although the discussion was off the record, all the presenters agreed to permit EPRINC to post their presentations and these can be found here.

Lucian Pugliaresi Presents on Energy Security at JINSA Meeting for IDF Officers

On April 10, 2018 in Washington, DC, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA)  invited Lucian Pugliaresi to meet with a group of visiting officers of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to discuss North American energy trends and energy security policy. A major natural gas find off the coast of  Israel is bringing enormous opportunities for regional natural gas supplies, but also presents some important energy security challenges. A copy of Lucian’s presentation to the visiting IDF delegation can be found here.

MEDITERRANEAN SEA, ISRAEL - FEBRUARY 2013:  In this handout image provided by Albatross, The Tamar drilling natural gas production platform is seen some 25 kilometers West of the Ashkelon shore in February 2013 in Israel. The offshore Tamar drilling site which was originally dispatched from a shipyard in Texas at the end of last year is due to start producing natural gas next week. Over the past few years Israel has suffered from a shortage in natural gas, but with the new platform that weighs 34,000 tons and will be mainly operated by Israelis, the US company Nobel Energy which owns a 36% stake in Tamar, hopes to change Israel's energy situation as well as the economy as a whole.
