China’s yuan-denominated crude futures benchmark is expected to launch this year, and it has the potential shake up global oil markets and chip away at the dollar’s supremacy, says Matt Piotrowski, senior editor for The Fuse. Piotrowski talks to Platts Capitol Crude: The U.S. Oil Policy Podcast about China’s motivations behind the crude contract, what its chances are for success, and why it matters for U.S. consumers and American energy security.
