Joe McMonigle: Saudis May Seek Policy Change in 2017

by Leslie Hayward | June 01, 2016

Joe McMonigle of Hedgeye Potomac discusses the changes taking place at OPEC, including votes on a new Secretary General, Gabon’s addition as a member, and potential for policy changes under Saudi leadership in 2017. Additionally, McMonigle argues that OPEC member states seeking more of a voice are likely to support Mohammed Barkindo, and that Gabon’s addition can help counter the narrative of OPEC’s diminished relevance.
