Readers’ Q&A

Kiran Stacey

The global economic recovery is unlikely to be threatened by rising oil prices, Amrita Sen, oil analyst at Barclays Capital, has said.

Answering Energy Source readers’ questions, Sen said she expected a “longer term increase in prices” with Opec spare capacity stretched and energy demand continuing to rise. But unlike other forecasters, she said such a rise would not threaten demand, with eastern consumers willing to pay more for their energy and western ones dipping into their savings.

Many thanks for all your questions for Amrita Sen, oil analyst at BarCap. Her answers will appear on this site on Friday, April 8th.

Next week, the person in the hotseat will be Michael Bromwich, director of the US oceans regulator, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.

Bromwich is the person in charge of deciding who gets to drill where in the sea off the US, and one year on from the BP oil spill, this is your chance to quiz him on everything from who should be able to drill in the Gulf of Mexico to what can be done to prevent another major spill.

Next week, the person in the hotseat will be Francesco Starace, chief executive of Enel Green Power, the green power multinational that was spun out of the Italian utility Enel last year.

This is your chance to ask the head of one of the world’s largest green power companies about everything from the company’s troubled initial public offering, to why the growth of renewable power continues to disappoint, to which of Enel’s generation methods – wind, solar, geothermal or  hydropower – holds the most potential.

Email your questions to energysource@ft.com by the end of Sunday, March 20th.
