About this book

Introduction

This book analyzes motivation, investments, and influence of the Russian Federation and Russian companies in the European oil sector, specifically, the Southeastern Europe. The main idea of the book is to highlight economic and political logic of the Russian activities in the oil sector as well as to provide a brief analysis of the situation in the natural gas sector. The findings help to understand the general code of conduct of Russian energy companies and their potential ties to their homeland government. This project will appeal to academics, researchers, graduate students, field professionals, and everyone who is interested in Russian and European geopolitics.

Reviews

“A very timely contribution, this book addresses an extremely important and recent topic. It represents a detailed and thorough investigation of the impact of the Russian state-owned oil companies in the SEE region and offers a substantial contribution to the field.” (Alexander Libman, Professor, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany)

“The topic of Russian energy and its impact in Europe is very timely, and this book is particularly relevant because it focuses on SE Europe, which receives less attention than it should. In addition, the authors develop a unique model for analysing the issue of Russian corporate activity in the oil sector which provides some quantitative conclusions on a topic that is too often confused by subjective judgement.” (James Henderson, Director, Natural Gas Research Programme, The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, UK)
