Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Considering the future of Cuba's oil imports in light of US exports

March 21, 2016 (8:59 mins)



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

As President Barack Obama leaves for his historic trip to Cuba, Platts senior oil editors Herman Wang and Brian Scheid look at what the potential end to the long-standing trade embargo means for US crude oil and petroleum products exports. Obama will be the first president to visit Cuba in nearly 90 years, but could a cargo of WTI crude soon be shipped from Corpus Christi to Havana? Jorge Pi on, director of the Latin America and Caribbean Energy Program at the University of Texas at Austin, says that may hinge as much on the situation of oil-producing Venezuela as it does on US trade policy.
