Perspectives of Oil and Gas: The Road to Interdependence is an up-to-date analysis of the dynamics of petroleum resources. It covers such subjects as oil reserves, depletion policy, pricing strategy, technological factors, and consumer trends. Likewise, it addresses the constraints faced by oil industry planners, from production to third party sales and refining.
In addition to in-depth analysis, this book proposes practical solutions to complex problems: for example, how the different objectives and interests of international oil companies and oil producing countries can be reconciled to their mutual advantage. Attention is also focused on development through cooperation beween producers, importers, and multinationals. Perspectives of Oil and Gas ends by addressing the main challenges confronting interdependent economies in the near future.
Audience: Decision-makers, policy planners, and academics concerned with the business and technical aspects of the petroleum economy and industry.
