On this installment of StudioTulsa, an interesting chat with Gustavo Coronel, who had a 30+ year career in the petroleum industry in Venezuela, Holland, Algiers, Indonesia, most of Latin America, and the United States, while working for Royal Dutch-Shell, Phillips Petroleum, and Petroleos de Venezuela. Since 2006, he has been an independent consultant on the geopolitics of energy and Latin American public policy. Coronel has degrees from the University of Tulsa, the Universidad Central de Venezuela, and Johns Hopkins University, and he's been a fellow of the Center for International Affairs at Harvard. He's also a member of the TU Engineering Hall of Fame, and he recently gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled "Report on Venezuela: Oil and Politics in the 21st Century." He speaks about the key points of that address on our show today.
