Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Kurdistan turns to the US and others to help fund the future of its crude oil

May 23, 2016 (19:47 mins)



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region has been hard hit by the oil price plunge of late, but it is attempting to pull its oil industry out of the shadows and toward legitimacy. Platts senior editors Herman Wang and Brian Scheid are joined by Ben Lando, founder and editor-in-chief of the Iraq Oil Report, and Jared Levy, director of the Iraq Oil Report's custom research division, to dig into the region's complicated role in the crude landscape.

They discuss the state of Iraq's crude production and exports, the Kurdistan Regional Government's efforts to get the US to help with its $100 million deficit caused by low oil prices, and the impact of ISIS attacks on the country's oil infrastructure. Lando and Levy, who also write for Platts, look at where Iraq's crude industry is headed and the major hurdles it currently faces.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editors at brian.scheid@platts.com and herman.wang@platts.com.
