  • Running Short of Tailwinds for the Economy 22 november, 2023
    Strangely enough, the economy seems to move from tailwind to tailwind, as new resources are discovered, as population expands, and as central banks figure out new ways to fix the economy. In this post, I will describe some tailwinds affecting the economy. Many of these have recently lost their value or are likely to lose […]
  • Dr. Tom Murphy’s Infinite Growth with a Finite Brain 5 december, 2023
    Physicist Dr. Tom Murphy is one of the most aware and smart people I know of. He’s also a wise man that cares about things that matter, and tries to set a good example with his lifestyle.

NOG seminarium om

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Nätverket Olja & Gas presenterar under detta seminarium en redovisning av vad omvälvningarna i Nordafrika och Mellersta Östen betyder, det blir ett seminarium på engelska som kallas ”Focus: the Middle East and North Africa – Promises and Risks following the “Arab Spring” in 2011”
Since December 2010, civil protests and uprisings have spread rapidly across the Middle East and North Africa (often referred to as the MENA region). This wave of popular protests and call for change, with young activists as vanguard, has been named the “Arab Spring”. In Tunisia and Egypt, and now also Libya, established regimes have been overthrown; massive demonstrations have destabilized Syria, Bahrain and Yemen, and been met harshly. Popular protests have affected several other countries in the MENA region, which already before was affected by complicated political conflicts.
The region is also crucial to the world’s energy supply; it holds some 60 % of the reported, proved reserves of oil and 45 % of gas reserves. Nearly all the spare capacity in oil production in the world is here.
At the seminar, we will highlight the complex forces that are at play and discuss the conditions that will shape the political development in the different key countries of the region. Which promises and pitfalls can we see? Democracy, new autocracy or sectarianism? We will also examine the conflicts’ consequences for the world’s oil and gas markets, for MENA as an oil and gas producing region, and describe the scenarios that may constitute major risks for the world’s energy supply.
