Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

As US energy policy pendulum swings, Trump looks to Arctic and Atlantic drilling

June 05, 2017 (20:19 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

Capitol Crude talks to Ali Zaidi, who served for eight years in the Obama administration, about an area where the economic and environmental concerns collide for the oil and gas industry: offshore. Zaidi, senior advisor at Morrison Foerster, most recently served the Obama administration as the White House Office of Management and Budget associate director for natural resources, energy and science.

Speaking with senior oil editor Brian Scheid, he touches on the Trump administration's plans to expand offshore drilling and other possible regulatory rollbacks around methane emissions and fracking. Could changes result in nationwide standards, or will a patchwork of state standards continue? And can Obama's energy legacy be affected by changes from the current administration?
