Based in Singapore, Henning covers geopolitical risk in oil and natural gas supplies, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, and the environmental pressures of Asia's huge populations on natural resources. He takes a particular interest in the rise of Asia as the world's biggest energy and natural resources consumer and how that affects global politics, supply chains, and the environment.
Prior to joining Eurasia Group, Henning was Asia energy editor and deputy editor for Asian commodities at Reuters. Before that, he led Reuters's European power, gas, and coal coverage from London. Henning was introduced to the world of energy and commodities working for Platts in London, where he led the European power pricing team during the region's market liberalization period. Henning started his career in Colombia, where he spent months traveling the areas near the borders with Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela, reporting on contraband and the region's armed conflicts for German newspapers.
A member of the Frontline Club, which supports reporters and volunteers in hostile environments, Henning has a master's degree in history and politics from Humboldt University in Berlin, where he focused on international security politics and naval history. For those who really want to know the difference between sweet versus sour and heavy versus light crudes, Henning hosts oil tasting evenings from time to time, followed by servings of more enjoyable beverages.
