Event description

Description

Have low oil prices created a false sense of energy security? Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE) invites you to join us for a panel discussion exploring how market uncertainty, underinvestment, geopolitical risk, OPEC intervention, rising global demand, and other market forces undermine oil market stability. The panel will discuss the likelihood of a return to high and volatile oil prices, implications for American economic and national security, and domestic policy solutions.

Moderated by Ben Geman, energy reporter for Axios, the panel will feature Adam Sieminski, James R. Schlesinger Chair for Energy and Geopolitics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the former Administrator of the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and Jonathan Chanis, SAFE's Senior Vice President of Policy.

Refreshments will be served. This is a widely attended gathering.
