2015 BP Energy Outlook 2035 with BP Chief Economist Spencer Dale

The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a presentation and discussion of the 2015 edition of the BP Energy Outlook 2035 with BP Group Chief Economist Spencer Dale. The BP Energy Outlook attempts to describe the "most likely" trajectory of the global energy system based upon assumptions around economic and population growth as well as developments in policy and technology. Questions addressed included:

  • Which fuels will gain and lose global market share?
  • What is the outlook for US tight oil and shale gas supply, and what will the US energy renaissance of recent years mean for global markets into the future?
  • What changes are likely for China (the world’s biggest energy consumer)?
  • What are the implications for CO2 emissions?
  • And, with the oil price in the spotlight, what are the forces that will influence energy prices over the decades to come?

Center Director Jason Bordoff moderated a discussion following the presentation.

Russia's South Stream pipeline falls victim to Ukraine crisis, energy rout

Russia's $40 billion South Stream gas pipeline project has fallen victim to plunging energy prices, stalling European demand and the political standoff between the European Union and Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine. "It (scrapping South Stream) reflects internal Russian pressure on where it is going to invest limited resources at a point in time when sanctions are hitting," said Carlos Pascual, a fellow at Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy, referring to Western sanctions over Ukraine. "It's harder, more expensive to access capital and the fastest growing gas markets in the world are in Asia, and Russia has virtually no export capacity to the Asian market," he added.
