Energy Cooperation in the Western Hemisphere: Benefits and Impediments (Spanish Edition) Edited by Sidney Weintraub with Annette Hester and Veronica R. Prado, with a forward by Luis Alberto Moreno.

The book "Energy Cooperation in the Western Hemisphere: Benefits and Impediments" examines the state of energy cooperation between oil producers and natural gas in the Western Hemisphere and opportunities for further cooperation. Is the result of two years of extensive research in each country and interviews with key stakeholders, including government and oil industry representatives. The study is distinguished by its comprehensive approach which makes a specific analysis of current conditions and future projects in each country. Sidney Weintraub and his coauthors analyze critical historical factors, technical challenges, dangerous conditions, political tensions, divisions and disagreements that have impeded hemispheric cooperation. The authors offer predictions and suggestions with the aim to encourage objective discussions within countries and contribute to a more stable and cooperative hemisphere in energy.
