Please join us for our annual discussion on the outlook for winter fuels where we explore seasonal weather trends and impact on global demand for all winter fuels including natural gas, propane and crude oil and heating oil. This year, we are faced with an ongoing energy crisis and high fuel prices amidst Russia-Ukraine war and other geopolitical risks. This together with severe weather events related to climate change point to another volatile winter ahead.

We are joined by Amrita Sen who is Founder and Director of Research at Energy Aspects, and, Roger Diwan who is a Vice President for S&P Global Commodity Insight. Ed Morse, Chair of the Energy Forum Advisory Board and Managing Director and Global Head of Commodity Research at Citigroup, will moderate the discussion.

This event will be a virtual session via Zoom from 12:00 until 1:30 PM EST. Additional details will be provided to registered attendees prior to the session.
