Director, Global Energy & Natural Resources


Global Energy and Natural Resources, Oil

Greg Priddy covers the world oil market and oil industry, focusing on the areas and issues where there is a strong nexus between politics, public policy, and security and market and industry outcomes. This includes disruption events, sanctions policy, resource nationalism, cartel politics, environmental regulation, and demand management.

In recent years, Greg has been instrumental in the firm's coverage of the US shale boom, sanctions against Iran, and the current period of rebalancing of the physical market in the face of massive oversupply. He correctly forecasted the demise of the premature recovery of crude oil prices in mid-2015. Greg, who joined Eurasia Group in 2006, holds master's and bachelor's degrees from the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University. He also studied at the American University in Cairo. His prior experience included seven years of involvement in coverage of international and supply risk issues for the US Energy Information Administration. He enjoys summer vacations in cold climates and obscure early 1980s music, mostly from the UK.
