These partnerships provide a vehicle to convey U.S. experiences and best business and regulatory practices to these nations. USEA’s energy partnerships have been applauded as some of the most successful foreign assistance programs ever created. Partnerships have been established between the United States and Latin America, Africa, Asia, the former Soviet Union, and Central & Eastern Europe. Focus areas in Africa have included petroleum exploration, production and transportation; natural gas exploration, production, and transportation; and electric power production, transmission, distribution, and utilization.
