US shale outlook in focus at Abu Dhabi forum (

5-1-Chris-FaulknerThe outlook for US shale this year and beyond, which has been thrust into the forefront of world affairs in light of crisis in China and the Middle East, will be discussed at a forum in Abu Dhabi, UAE, this week.

Breitling Energy Corporation chairman and chief executive officer Chris Faulkner will speak at the seventh Gulf Intelligence UAE Energy Forum will take place on January 12.

He will join the Platts Global editorial director of oil Dave Ernsberger, for the first breakout session, discussing these new major international developments of 2016 and how they will affect world oil markets.

“There has been a significant axis shift globally in just a few short days of 2016. I thought we would be discussing the dynamics of $40 dollar oil and now, virtually overnight, we have China’s economy crashing and the Middle East on the edge of conflict,” said Faulkner.

“All of this will have ripple effects and oil has been taking a gut punch. This is an amazing time to be in the Middle East and speaking to such a prestigious group of colleagues,” he said.

The forum is being hosted by The Gulf Intelligence, a leader in knowledge exchange and networking between stakeholders in energy, healthcare, banking and finance across the Gulf region and is a subsidiary of Platts, a division of McGraw Hill Financial. –
