Christof Rühl, member of the Advisory Board of Crystol Energy and a Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, discusses the latest global economic developments in this weekly interview to the Gulf Intelligence.
Christof comments on the weak market fundamentals and the uncertainty that exists around both supply and demand recovery which is mirroring the economic performance and the slow vaccine rollout.
He also discusses OPEC+, Saudi oil policy, as well as the impact on oil prices of the potential revival of the Iran nuclear deal after talks are expected to resume next week.
Christof further talks about the latest geopolitical development over the Ukraine border standoff and what might be at stake with respect to the gas supply in Europe if the region was to erupt into something more disruptive.
Christof is joined by John Roper, CEO, Middle East, Uniper Global Commodities SE. Sean Evers, Managing Partner at the Gulf Intelligence, moderates the discussion.
