Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Trump’s presidential win and its potential impact on US-Russia energy relations

November 14, 2016 (8:29 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

Capitol Crude looks at how President-elect Donald Trump might handle US sanctions against Russia, given indications during the campaign that he would take a softer stance with Moscow.

Will Trump ease these sanctions that are restricting Western oil companies’ operations in Russia? Moscow-based Platts editor Rosemary Griffin explains how ExxonMobil has taken a $1 billion hit from having to scale back its cooperation with Rosneft, Russia’s largest crude producer.

Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon also talk with US sanctions experts Joe McMonigle, president of The Abraham Group and former Department of Energy chief of staff during the George W Bush administration, and Richard Nephew, a principal deputy sanctions coordinator in the Obama administration from 2013 to 2015.

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@spglobal.com and meghan.gordon@spglobal.com.
