A Rising China’s Impact on Global Energy, and the Implications for the U.S.

March 5, 2018 - 12:00 pm

55 Water St, Times Square Room (36th Floor)
New York, New York

China's seemingly insatiable thirst for oil—combined with stagnating production at home—has driven China into the position of the world's largest oil importer.  As China diversifies its sources of oil and other energy resources, it is profoundly reshaping the global energy landscape, with significant implications for US energy security.  How will China's increasingly large and sophisticated interests in the global oil and gas industry transform the energy market?  As China increases its commercial ties with the United States’ traditional oil partners, including in Latin America, how will this affect US energy security?

Please join the Atlantic Council, in partnership with HSBC and in collaboration with S&P Global Platts, as we convene leading global energy experts on Monday, March 5, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. EST to share insights on these new trends in global energy and their implications.  The Atlantic Council will also release its latest report titled China, Oil, and Latin America: Myths vs Reality.
