What Liquid Fuels Top Spot for US Means – EIA

“Energy developments in the United States are profound and their effect will be felt well beyond North America – and the energy sector. The recent rebound in US oil and gas production, driven by upstream technologies that are unlocking light tight oil and shale gas resources, is spurring economic activity – with less expensive gas and electricity prices giving industry a competitive edge – and steadily changing the role of North America in global energy trade. By around 2020, the United States is projected to become the largest global oil producer (overtaking Saudi Arabia until the mid-2020s) and starts to see the impact of new fuel-efficiency measures in transport. The result is a continued fall in US oil imports, to the extent that North America becomes a net oil exporter around 2030.

Business Forum: Nuclear and Renewable Energy – Yamani

..talk to you about a momentous initiative that the Kingdom undertook on April 17th of last year when it announced the creation of King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, KA-CARE. The announcement was a culmination of a national discourse on energy from both supply and demand perspectives, taking into account the local, regional, and international markets. The founding Royal Order establishing KA-CARE states explicitly that the creation of the city is to contribute to the sustainable development in Saudi Arabia through the utilization of science, research, and industries related to atomic and renewable energy for peaceful purposes in a way that leads to raising the standards of living and quality of life in Saudi Arabia.
