Abstract

This chapter contains a detailed case study of Macedonia. The chapter starts with an introduction and then presents the upstream, midstream, and downstream sections of the country’s oil value chain. These detailed sections provide much-needed insight into the oil sector of the country and are followed with information on Russian involvement and operations in its oil market. The chapter then concludes with an evaluation of the research indicators showing Russian activity in the oil sector of the country.
