Gulf Oil and Gas Sector by ECSSR

Book Description

The predominance of oil as the world's main source of energy, coupled with the recent phenomenal growth of the natural gas industry spurred by environmental considerations, ensure that the Gulf's energy sector will continue to play a pivotal role in the global market. With world demand projected to reach unprecedented levels, led by Asian economic powers such as China and India, oil production peaking in key areas and geopolitical crises fuelling greater uncertainty, issues of global supply security have come to the fore. All these factors have led to a steep rise in petroleum prices, filling the coffers of the oil producers but threatening to paralyse the global economy and imposing a heavy burden on the ultimate consumers. In this energy scenario, where does the Gulf oil and gas sector stand? How can it meet its long-term strategic requirements while satisfying the energy needs of the global economy? This is the main focus of "The Gulf Oil and Gas Sector" in which leading energy experts examine both the possibilities and the problems of the Gulf energy sector in the wider global context. Important energy issues covered include the future prospects of OPEC, the impact of world oil prices on global growth, the strategic objectives of the Gulf energy sector, the influence of markets and technology on regional reserves, the emerging partnerships between national and international oil companies, the imperatives for attracting Gulf energy investment and new developments in gas technology and regional gas trade. Regional case studies outline possible scenarios for the future of Iraqi oil, highlight policy options for Saudi Arabia as a swing producer and focus on the Norwegian experience of economic diversification.
