Russian Oil: the Last Repartition

Russian Oil: the Last Repartition

At the end of April the director of the National Security Fund and president of the Center for Current Politics in Russia published a new book entitled: Russian Oil: the Last Repartition. The research focuses on the relation between oil and politics in the Vladimir Putin’s epoch.

Konstantin Simonov dwells on the results of the first years of the Vladimir Putin’s presidency for the oil and gas industry. The «YUKOS affair», competition for the natural resource rent, mergers and acquisitions in the fuel industry: these issues have kept the entire Russian society on the tenterhooks.

The oil and gas industry is on the verge of a large repartition, behind which are the dominating power clans of the modern Russia. The struggle for property will inevitably affect the entire economics and political system of the country.

What future awaits the Russian oil and gas, who is behind the strike on YUKOS, how will the power clans share fuel assets – all these problems are in the focus of the book.

The book also studies western oil companies – it shows their role in the recent events in Russia, prospect of the operations in Russia, as well as the place of the Russian oil and gas industry in the big global oil game.
