When Down Means Up: Retooling the Oil Industry
April 21, 2015
Hosted by Nancy Lin
Will new technologies save the US oil industry from a crash? The crude oil price has collapsed from $100 to below or around $50, driven by over supply and geopolitics. Many believe that the US oil boom is coming to the end. To the doomsayers’ surprise, the price squeeze is creating a new incentive for US oil companies to implement innovative technology to boost cost efficiency. This week, we will explore the dramatic advancement that’s taking place in the industry and helping US companies to develop new competitive advantages against Saudi Arabia. I will explore new techniques and emerging technology, such as nanotechnology, with Robert Bryce, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and Jay Kipper, Program Director, Bureau of Economic Geology at University of Texas, Austin.
