I just wanted to get everyone updated on the status of Energy Security. This project is not dead, though I have been admittedly neglecting to post new analyses. I hope to fix that in the coming months. In addition, I think that everything will move in a different direction from the previous posts, with a focus on getting information out in a briefer format more frequently rather than submitting longer pieces, like those already up. The post on the Myths of Fracking may be a good example of how things will evolve.

Regardless, I’m looking forward to the months to come and bringing new content. With that said, I think the following topics will deserve a briefing:

  • Oil and Gas Developments in an Unstable Iraq
  • Effects of Iranian Sanctions on Russia and Central Asia
  • The American Shale Revolution – What It Means Domestically and Internationally
  • Canadian Bitumen – The Frozen North Heats Up
  • Fracking and Water Concerns
  • Primer on the Energy Infrastructure of the USA
  • Prospects of the Liberalization of Pemex
  • Twilight of the Supermajors and Rise of the NOCs?
  • Rosneft and the Russian Focus on East Asian LNG
  • Internal Energy Politics of Russia
  • Arctic Energy
  • Going Nuclear with Thorium
  • Systemic Effects of Draw down of Nuclear Power in Germany and Japan
  • The Viability of Algal Biofuels and Cellulosic Ethanol
  • The Latent Chinese Shale Revolution
  • PetroBras and Prospects of Brazilian Energy Independence
  • Instability in Nigeria – Boko Haram and the Nigerian Oil & Gas Bounty
  • Chinese Encroachment on Central Asia and Geopolitical Implications
  • Future of Coal
  • Energiewende
  • The Effects of US-Saudi Tension

If you have any suggestions or would like to see a particular topic covered more quickly, please go ahead and leave a comment. I can see to it that I cover it more quickly.
