About the Energy Security Program

NBR’s Energy Security Program convenes top energy and geopolitical experts from industry, research, and policy for an assessment of the developments taking place in Asian energy markets and their implications for geopolitics. To inform and strengthen the public policy dialogue, experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including workshops and reports. We would like to thank our sponsors, which include the Asian Development Bank, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, the Center for Energy Governance and Security at Hanyang University, and the Korea Energy Economics Institute.

The roundtable included an in-depth discussion of the essay "Asia’s LNG Prospects: Finally Entering a Golden Age" from the twelfth annual Energy Security Report.
