Listen: Senator Murkowski quizzed on her efforts to repeal the US crude export ban

Senator Lisa Murkowski is the featured guest on this week's Capitol Crude, as Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang interview the Alaska Republican and chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee about her efforts to lift the US' longstanding restrictions on crude oil exports.

From her office in the Hart Senate Building in Washington, Murkowski discussed her recently introduced bill to repeal the restrictions and why the arguments of some refiners against changing the policy do not jibe with the reality of global markets and US trade policy in other goods and commodities. And she appealed to national security concerns, saying the US could use crude exports to weaken Russia's hold over Europe's energy trade and also benefit allies, such as Japan, which imports oil from Iran.
