Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

The US State Department, the South China Sea and summer oil drilling season

February 06, 2017 (14:19 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

Former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson has started his new job at the State Department, where he could still have a big impact on energy and commodity issues around the globe. Senior oil editors Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid look at how Tillerson might approach the long-simmering tensions in the South China Sea.

They spoke with Zack Cooper, a fellow with the Center for Strategic and International Studies who focuses on defense issues in Asia, about Tillerson’s comments at his confirmation hearing, what could be ahead for the summer drilling season offshore China and Vietnam, and Twitter diplomacy.

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.
