Listen: Oil market stakes in US election: Middle East, Venezuela, climate policy

It's Election Day in the US, and at a lot is at stake in the energy sector for the next four years.

We're revisiting three key policy areas that could shift direction depending on today's vote:

* US policy in the Middle East and Washington's relationship with OPEC, with Amy Myers Jaffe, research professor and managing director of the Climate Policy Lab at Tufts University's Fletcher School.

* US oil sanctions toward Venezuela and Washington's so-far failed attempts to remove the Maduro regime from power, with Raul Gallegos, director of Control Risks and author of Crude Nation.

* Expected climate policy in the next presidential term, with Jeff Berman, director of emissions and clean energy analytics at S&P Global Platts Analytics.

For other key election risks to global oil markets, we also recommend listening to these episodes from the archives:

* Will the White House vote move the US oil production outlook?

* Iran oil sanctions relief scenarios under a Biden White House

* Key changes for energy markets in US elections, but economy looms over all
