Implications of Russia Sanctions Legislation on the Energy Sector

Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act (DASKAA) of 2019 was re-introduced in the Senate in February as a bipartisan effort to address Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, interference in democratic processes abroad, and malign activities in Syria. The legislation lays out a suite of economic, political, and diplomatic tools — several addressing the Russian energy sector and its investors. On April 17, the expert panel will explore the potential effects the sanctions will have on the global LNG markets, new crude oil development, and Russian state energy projects abroad. The audience will learn about potential implications for oil and gas markets, energy projects, and companies if DASKAA becomes law.
