Audio: Is The Russian Oil Boom Over?

Veteran energy analyst and petroleum geologist, Robert Ebel, Chairman of the Energy Program at CSIS (The Center for Strategic and International Studies), based in Washington DC, talks candidly about the many problems that Russia - the engine behind so much non-OPEC oil growth in the last five years - will have in trying to expand its oil and gas production much further.
Turning to the debate over future US energy policy, Robert Ebel warns that business as usual is for cheap energy over, and confirms that Skrebowski's Oilfields Megaprojects Report is an important tool in trying to understand our deepening energy dilemma.
