Meghan O’Sullivan, former deputy national security advisor on Iraq and Afghanistan under President George W. Bush, says a shift toward nationalism or de-globalization will affect global oil markets.
In this interview with Hart Energy’s Jessica Morales and Len Vermillion, O’Sullivan, who currently serves as the Jeane Kirkpatrick Professor of the Practice of International Affairs and a board member of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School, also discusses what we might expect for the U.S. shale market in the wake of the oil price crash and COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, she touches on what to expect from the upcoming election and whether an administration change could have a significant effect on U.S. oil and gas.
