On Friday, Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman met with President Zatlers of Latvia, and the two discussed a range of energy issues; including energy security and the need for diversified resources, development opportunities in the liquid natural gas and shale gas markets, and the need to create an integrated Baltic energy market.  Deputy Secretary Poneman and President Zatlers also discussed Latvia’s plan to deploy offshore wind resources, much like our efforts here in the United States, and the ongoing role nuclear energy will play in the global energy portfolio.
