International Energy Politics
Through cases the course will work with the geopolitical developments from all regions, giving participants an overview of the key global trends and geopolitical risks. We examine the relevant international energy organizations and other organizations that might influence the energy area such as Transparency International and Greenpeace.
The course will give the participants an understanding of the turmoil in the Middle East, which has the largest reserve of hydrocarbons, and give tools to look at the stability of countries with known oil resources. It looks at existing producers such as the US and EU, and also at emerging producers such as China and the Gulf of Guinea.
We explore what the geopolitical trends mean to regional development of oil and gas.
The course Looks at the trends, opportunities and risks in newer oil producing nations, such as Ghana, Uganda and Mauritania. Will they become major players?
The impact of sustainability movements and the climate change debate also set new rules for oil production. All countries now integrate energy security into their long term geopolitical strategy because future growth is linked to stable energy supplies.
The program will provide the necessary overview to understand and be able to identify the relevant political variables in domestic, regional and global affairs that can influence the specific oil license on short and long term. This includes specific political situations as well as the change of game with the growing number of NOC sitting on the majority of the known resources today and that one minor incident in one country can initiate major changes in other countries.
The course teaches the participants to identify other threats that might influence the demand and supply of especially oil and gas but also energy in general.
Understand how the new climate change agenda will affect the political agenda of consumer states. What will the environmental challenges, including global warming, mean to the oil and gas industry?
We look at how oil and gas become a major currency between countries, using examples such as China which has built the first pipeline linking it to the gas fields in Turkmenistan. In doing so it is challenging the domination of Russia. Will international companies get access to the large gas fields, and if so, on what terms?
Political Influence on Oil Price
We evaluate leverage on political developments and its associated opportunities and risks in the global Oil & Gas market.
