This Webinar will provide journalists with:
- A detailed backgrounder of the oil industry: how and where are fossil fuels extracted and why they remain the foundation of the global economy; who the main players are among oil companies, the national agencies that regulate them, and global organizations that band producing and consuming nations together. Also, a brief tour of what the zeitgeist is – in terms of what energy companies and regulators are looking at right now.
- An understanding of how energy production or consumption relate to local economies – not only at the pump, but also in terms of jobs and tax revenue generation, as well as environmental impact.
- Useful websites to gather local, national and global information about energy that can lead to ideas or help nail stories down.
