This book examines Russia’s capacity to respond to a changing world through the lens of the country’s oil industry. Against a backdrop of social, political and climatic change, Indra Overland and Nina Poussenkova present a systematic analysis of how modern energy developments in the form of shale oil, offshore oil and the global energy transition are handled.

The book profiles Russia’s five largest oil companies – Rosneft, LUKOIL, Gazprom Neft, Surgutneftegas and Tatneft – which are vital channels for much of Russia’s income and constitute the backbone of the Russian economy. It explores the importance of the petroleum sector to Russian society, the place of Russian oil and gas in the world’s energy supply and the rapid pace of change in the global energy industry. In doing so, it offers insights into internationalization, oil price fluctuations, corporate social responsibility and the impact of Western sanctions against Russia.

This is an important read for scholars working on the Russian economy and energy business, particularly corporate social responsibility, organisational change and politics. It will also be a helpful reference tool for anyone working on the global petroleum sector who needs an update on the world’s largest energy exporter.
