Maps & Directions

The global petroleum industry is central to so many facets of life and essential to the global economy, and a strategic necessity. Crude and its many refinements are also part of a geopolitical contest, the lifeblood of military campaigns, elevator to rising GDP. And yet how long can it last, is there a "crude curse", how does the global supply chain work, and what impact do current events have on the security of our national supply?

Carlton Dallas, a Petroleum industry veteran, will review the impact of taxes, price comparisons with other countries, the history of discovery, relay how crude is tethered to politics, and how four developments have improved US energy independence. 

Mr. Dallas will speak on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 10 AM at the Bluffton Library, 120 Palmetto Way, Bluffton.  This program is free and open to the public, but guests need to register in advance.
