Tim Profeta, director of the Nicholas Institute, will take a closer look at Congress: What is a congressional office vs. a congressional committee? Do staffers really matter? And what is the congressional calendar and when to engage?
How and why does the petroleum industry extract oil and gas from deepwater (beyond 1,300-foot depths)? And how long will it last? During 2007-2012, 50 percent of the 170 billion barrels of global conventional oil (and gas equivalent) discovered by industry was in deepwater. Global output from these depths is projected to double by 2030, to 14 million barrels/day. This presentation will explain the history of petroleum extraction beyond the edge of the continental shelf and discuss its implications for the future of energy.
