The Oil Security Index is designed to enable policymakers and the general public to understand and compare the relative oil security of 16 countries around the world.
SAFE’s Oil Security Index gives readers a detailed breakdown of how change in the production and consumption of oil affects the security of some of the world’s major economies and oil producers. Updated quarterly, the Index is an essential tool for visualizing and comparing the oil security of each country evaluated and includes a spotlight feature on the countries or events influencing the global oil market today.
This latest Index update spotlights Mexico, whose efforts to revitalize oil production through privitization and oilfield auctions are on track for success, but not overnight. The United States ranks 9th in this installment of the Index, unchanged from last quarter.
