Brian Scheid and Herman Wang
On this week's Capitol Crude, Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang look at what advanced baseball statistics can tell us about US crude oil production data.
Sabermetrics led to a statistical revolution in Major League Baseball; are new production metrics on domestic production needed as policymakers look at changes to current crude export policy? Do we need to rethink the way we gather and use oil production stats the same way a new generation of baseball executives assess the value of a baseball player?
