The Coming Energy Shocks Under A Biden Administration

“Whether the energy shock emanates from the eclipse of the US as the world’s leading oil and gas producer (leading to high oil and gas prices) or from the collapse of the OPEC+ production cut agreement brought about by the re-emergence of unconstrained Iranian exports (leading to very low oil and gas prices), a Biden presidency presents some highly disruptive scenarios in global energy affairs, scenarios no less disruptive than any under Trump’s watch.”
