Scenarios for Middle East oil supply amid Iran-US tension: Business Extra podcast

Oil prices have spiked amid concerns over the potential disruption to regional supply

Uncertainty over US-Iran tensions have led investors to take - at least for the moment - a risk-off stance. Stock markets are volatile and gold is at a six-year high while US treasury yields are rising. Meanwhile, oil prices have spiked amid concerns over the potential disruption to Middle East supply. All in all, it is a delicate time for local, regional and global economies.

Host Mustafa Alrawi, assistant editor-in-chief, and Kelsey Warner, future editor of The National, talk to Robin Mills, chief executive of Qamar Energy and columnist, about the energy landscape and dig into the risks to economic growth in the region. Jennifer Gnana, The National's energy correspondent, also talks to Randy Bell, director of the global energy centre at the Atlantic Council ahead of the Global Energy Forum in Abu Dhabi.
