Robin Mills is head of Qamar Energy and a non-resident fellow at the Brookings Doha Center. His report, “Risky Routes: Energy Transit in the Middle East,” was published by Brookings in April 2016. It charts the whole spectrum of risk, from a temporary diminution of supply due to a crisis in one or a few countries, to a major disruption because of the closing of a key chokepoint. It provides a kind of geography showing the region’s main shipping routes and pipelines and attendant threats.
I wrote a summary review of ‘Risky Routes’ and a 2-part interview with Robin for Oilprice.com
