On Thursday, January 26, 2017 the Global Energy Center’s Energy Diplomacy Initiative hosted a report launch on A Natural Gas Diplomacy Strategy for the New US Administration for public and private interests. A new presidential administration under Donald J. Trump, newly elected Congress, and definite transformation in the US gas sector has brought forth a reassessment of the role of natural gas, energy policies, and impacts on international diplomacy. Agnia Grigas, Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center and author of the report, Suedeen G. Kelly, Partner and Chair, Energy Regulation, Markets, and Enforcement Practice at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LPP and former Commissioner with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and Tim Boersma, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy discussed their respective outlooks and explored recommendations for the new US Administration.
