RP Weekly Recap | May 2 – 6


The European Union relies on energy exports from Russia more than from any other country and now, the EU is proposing to cut itself off from Russian oil. The proposal comes after weeks of speculation about how far the bloc would go in imposing economic sanctions that could harm its own member states. The ban would hit a key pillar of Russia’s economy by phasing out the import of Russian crude oil to Europe within six months and stopping the flow of refined oil by year’s end. It would also put enormous pressure on the EU’s 27 members to find new energy sources and to cope with whatever retaliatory moves Russia imposes in return. Check out this story and more in this week’s recap of all things happening in oil and gas!
