In the third of a series of videos produced for us by our colleagues at Stratfor, Rodger Baker discusses some of the most important security challenges facing today’s global energy network. He begins by stressing the importance of safe and secure transportation links, which far-flung energy consumers nervously continue to rely upon. He then provides some predictions on what he believes the nature of energy security will look like in the short-term. He expects, for example, the construction of pipelines that will bypass the Strait of Hormuz and a greater dependence on shale oil and gas by the global energy system.
