Every day, a fifth of the world’s oil supply is produced in the Arabian Gulf and transported through the Straits of Hormuz. Understanding this region is critical to understanding energy markets and their impact on the global economy. Unfortunately, this is also a region where decision-making remains opaque. Successfully understanding regional developments and their impact on markets requires an experienced, well-connected guide.
