In his latest op-ed featured in the Journal of Petroleum Technology, Dr. Nansen Saleri talks about how the industry needs to take a proactive and solution-centric position with respect to the Paris Agreement, and the importance of joining the battle for the clean and affordable kilowatts of energy the markets will increasingly favor.

OPEC's decision not to scale back its crude production triggered an epic earthquake in the oil markets. Some claim that this is a knock-out punch to American producers with a corollary message to dissidents within and beyond OPEC - namely Iran, Venezuela and Russia. In a supply-dominant energy era, OPEC and American shale producers are fiercely juggling to define the new "normal" in benchmark crude prices.

Houston Chronicle • June 22, 2013 • by Dr. Nansen G. Saleri

The recent OPEC meeting in Vienna exposed the internal tensions among its member states - most notably Saudi Arabia and Iran signaling the transition into a complex energy era.

Two recent events in America offer additional proof with cascading implications worldwide: the Obama administration's approval of a $10 billion facility in Texas for natural gas exports and first-quarter results for Tesla Motors, the California-based electric car company showing its first-ever profits.

AOL Energy • November 30, 2011 • by Shifra Mincer

Dr. Nansen Saleri speaks with AOL energy about an enormous increase in natural gas availability in the US.

Even with increased awareness of natural gas' potential and problems on both sides of the fracking debate, the industry is still struggling to catch up with what is widely held to be an enormous American resource. In many cases, wells drilled for oil have also tapped gas.

Houston Chronicle • Friday, October 7, 2011 • by Dr. Nansen G. Saleri

The notion of energy independence evokes memories of a bygone era. Since the time that the U.S. was able to provide for its own energy needs, the prevailing energy policies of U.S. administrations have varied from neglect to tired expressions about the usual suspects - America's addiction to oil and the evils of foreign imports. That is about to change. Today a new dynamic is reshaping the global and U.S.

The Wall Street Journal's Market Watch • July 20, 2011 • By Steve Gelsi

Oil expert Nansen Saleri, president of Houston-based Quantum Reservoir Impact, said the move up in crude prices has “less to do with the inventory data and a lot more to do with the general perception regarding the state of the economy and a possible break in the debt negotiations” in Washington.
