Last week, Dr. Edward Morse, Global head of Commodities Research for Citigroup, gave a presentation at the University of Ottawa titled “The Shale Revolution in the United States and the New Geopolitics of Energy.” The presentation was part of a discussion on how the development of shale has transformed the United States energy picture from one of hydrocarbon scarcity to hydrocarbon abundance, and what that might this mean for geopolitics, energy, defense and security — particularly in terms of U.S.-Canada energy relations.

Dr. Morse was brought to Canada by a grant from the U.S. Embassy. He was joined on the panel by Dr. Tuncay Babali, the Ambassador for the Republic of Turkey to Canada, and the Hon. Perrin Beatty, President & CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
