Europe and the Geopolitics of Energy Study Group

Lee Kaldor, Former Senior Policy Advisor, Legislator, and Energy Coordinator for USDA, will discuss "North Dakota shale oil: Social and economic impacts." Hosted by Ole Gunnar Austvik, M-RCBG Senior Fellow, Harvard Kennedy School. Advance registration is not required. All sessions are open.

North Dakota and Bakken shale oil appear to be a game-changer in the oil industry, with potential for widespread impacts on international energy markets, including in Europe. What are the costs and potential for further developments in ND? What are the impacts of low oil prices on production? Can the ND experience be copied elsewhere? Kaldor will also discuss the huge socio-economic consequences of shale oil developments on state and social developments in North Dakota.

Advance registration is not required. All sessions are open.
