United States and Canada Must Jointly Develop North American Energy Market

With Canada's complex and costly extraction and high transportation costs, the enduring low oil prices have hit the country particularly hard.

Systemic Violence Threatens Middle East Oil Outlook

Even though there are vast, cheap reserves of oil and gas in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), political instability remains as the main barrier to exploration and production. The current oil slump has hurt investment worldwide, nevertheless the recovery period appears to favor investment in North America, the Caspian, and Africa.
