Expert on Rising Gas Prices, Energy Issues Available at CUA

  • ECONOMICS OF ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT — Kevin Forbes, who is also professor and chair of CUA’s Department of Business and Economics, has researched energy markets for more than 15 years, with much of his focus on oil and natural gas supplies. His lecture on the globalization of the gasoline market (presented at a CUA globalization conference earlier this year) is expected to be published next year as a book chapter. Currently he is finishing up a major study that examines the adequacy of natural gas reserves in the Gulf of Mexico.


He is the co-author, with CUA Professor Ernest Zampelli, of an article on technology’s impact on oil and gas supplies titled “Technology and the Success Rate in the U.S. Onshore Oil and Gas Industry,” published in a 2002 issue of “Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance.” Forbes also is an active participant in Stanford University’s Energy Modeling Forum, which brings together energy experts from government, industry, universities and other research organizations to discuss critical energy and environmental issues.


Forbes can be reached at 202-319-4794 (office) or 202-329-5550 (mobile) or by e-mail: forbes@cua.edu.
