This event marks the UK release of a new book, Oil and Governance: State-owned Enterprises and the World Energy Supply (CUP), from the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University. The book is the largest and most systematic analysis of national oil companies (NOCs) to date. It includes 15 in-depth case studies of some of the most important NOCs around the world as well as cross-cutting studies of three key determinants of NOC performance and strategy: geological and market risk, political systems and how governments manage their NOCs. Three of the book's authors will present their findings.

This event is by invitation only.
