Please join the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center for the launch of Global Energy Center Senior Fellow Phillip Cornell’s report, “Strategic Oil Product Stockholding: International Experience and American Prospects.”
Since 2000, the United States has taken steps toward developing strategic stocks of emergency oil product reserves to safeguard supply from international crises and local events such as natural disasters. Reviewing existing oil product stockholding regimes worldwide, this report concludes that a decentralized and incremental implementation of strategic product reserves can allow the United States to address risks associated with oil product storage and delivery given the state of domestic infrastructure.
Cornell will moderate a panel discussion with Rep. John Shimkus, the congressman for Illinois’ 15th District, and Melanie Kenderdine, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center. Join us to discuss policy directions for approaching impending oil consumption changes and strengthening energy security policy in the United States.

**Amb. Richard Morningstar (Ret.), Founding Director and Chairman, Global Energy Center, Atlantic Council

**Rep. John Shimkus, Congressman, 15th District of Illinois, United States House of Representatives
