From the Scope Note: "This paper is the result of a six-month research project conducted under the auspices of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence's 2018 Public-Private Analytic Exchange Program. The project examined the economic and national security implications for the United States of two trends in the global energy market: increasing U.S. production and rising demand throughout the Indo-Pacific region. Given the compressed time-frame and resource constraints, the project limited its analysis to those two regions and did not examine other major sources of energy supplies or demand. The project also limited its analysis to energy commodities, specifically hydrocarbons, and did not examine other aspects of the energy trade, such as technology and services. Examinations of other energy-related regions and products are recommended for future investigations."
