The Embassy of Canada, in partnership with the Energy Policy Research Foundation Inc., sponsored a panel discussion at the Embassy on September 6th, 2017. The discussion focused on the opportunities and challenges associated with advancing North American energy integration, and recent U.S. initiatives to enact regulatory reform and other measures to provide a timely build out of pipelines, processing and export facilities, and other related energy infrastructure.
UNTAPPED POTENTIAL WHY DEVELOPING ANWR STILL MAKES SENSE
EPRINC’s Will Pack and John Dahlberg explore the large net economic value of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in their recent paper entitled: “Untapped Potential: Why Developing ANWR Still Makes Sense.” This value is mainly driven by the expensive existing infrastructure, which will soon be lost without further development in the North Slope. The paper can be found at the following link.
EPRINC Welcomes Ash Shastri as a Distinguished Fellow
EPRINC is pleased to announce that Ash Shastri has joined us as a Distinguished Fellow. Ash brings a wealth of experience on global natural gas markets and Indian energy policy. As EPRINC proceeds with the second year of our joint project with the Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) on the Future of Asian LNG, Ash’s deep understanding of the intersection of energy policy and natural gas markets will be an invaluable contribution to this effort. Ash is now working on an assessment for EPRINC on the primary forces likely to shape natural gas demand in India. We expect to publish the report in March 2018.

Advances in Well Completion Design Sustain Advances in Shale Oil Productivity
EPRINC Non-Resident Fellow Trisha Curtis and Trustee Ben Montalbano build on some of their previous work concerning US shale productivity in their recent paper entitled “Completion Design and the Impact on US Shale Well Productivity.”They identify the factors contributing to sustained productivity growth in several US shale plays and examine some of the economic constraints facing well efficiency. As the nation adjusts to relatively stable and depressed oil and gas prices, Trisha and Ben’s paper outlines the current industry environment and highlights future challenges to increasing shale productivity. Their paper can be downloaded by clicking here.

Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) and EPRINC collaborate on Assessment on the Future of Asian LNGRead More
The Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) and EPRINC have undertaken a joint assessment of the future role of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Asian power and fuel markets. The research and survey project includes specific recommendations for policy makers and other stakeholders on strategies to both support LNG demand in Asia and to improve the competitiveness of U.S. natural gas in the region.
EPRINC and IEEJ established a joint research program to evaluate the “Future of Asian LNG Demand.” The effort was initiated with a joint workshop of experts, industry representatives, and government officials on July 20, 2017 in Washington D.C. and has since been followed by a meeting with Japanese industry experts in Tokyo on July 28, 2017. An overview of the research effort can be found here, and photos from the inaugural workshop are located here.
On June 7, 2017 EPRINC’s President, Lucian Pugliaresi, presented at the 2017 Washington Oil & Gas Forum. A copy of his presentation can be found here.
