Panel: Price & Power
OPEC attempted to shutter the U.S. oil revolution with low prices. Instead, it made the U.S. oil story stronger. U.S. production is now 12 million barrels a day—and growing. Here’s the overview and outlook for the Permian Basin’s continued role in U.S. market share in world markets and how it's getting to markets.
