Brian Scheid and Herman Wang
In this week’s Platts Capitol Crude, senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang put their conflict resolution skills to the test as they stage an intervention between President Barack Obama and lawmakers in Congress, skeptical over his administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran.
Can they reach a compromise that gives US negotiators flexibility to make a deal with Iran – including the lifting of oil sanctions – while still giving Congress a voice in the process?
Brian and Herman also talk with Michael Cohen, head of energy commodities research at Barclays, about how a nuclear deal could impact global oil markets, with Iran eager to ramp up production back to pre-sanctions levels.
