Understanding the North American Petroleum Renaissance

August 21, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, John A. Burns Hall, Room 3118

Lucian Pugliaresi, President, Energy Policy Research Foundation, Inc., will outline the scope and scale of the North American petroleum renaissance and the challenges to U.S. energy policy as surging production of U.S. and Canadian crude oil and natural gas, falling national consumption and rising exports come in direct conflict with a regulatory structure put into place in an era of scarcity and rising consumption.

Lucian Pugliaresi is President of the Energy Policy Research Foundation (EPRINC), a not-for-profit organization that studies energy economics and policy issues with special emphasis on oil, natural gas, and petroleum product markets. He has served in a wide range of government posts, including the National Security Council at the White House (Reagan Administration), Departments of State, Energy, and Interior, as well as the EPA. He has written extensively on energy and frequently testifies before committees of the U.S. Congress.

Mr. Pugliaresi is also a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal. Among some of his recent publications are “Future Oil Supplies Can Lower Prices Today,” Wall Street Journal, June 2, 2011; “Lessons of the Shale Gas Revolution,” Wall Street Journal, September 30, 2011; “The Keystone Debacle,” Wall Street Journal, November 16, 2011; “North America’s Strategic Loss: Keystone XL Pipeline and the High Cost of the American Regulatory Regime,” Geopolitics of Energy, Canadian Energy Research Institute, December 2011; “Keystone Can Help the Gulf—and the Northeast,” Wall Street Journal, January 31, 2012; “Time to Rethink Renewable Fuel Rules,” CNBC online, April 18, 2013
