National Oil Companies in the Age of Unconventional Oil and Gas
Research explores the implications of the growth in unconventional oil and gas production for national oil companies (NOCs). The study will investigate the extent to which NOCs are able to lead unconventional development in various countries in spite of mandates for social welfare, and more centralized operating and decision-making structures (relative to U.S. independent exploration and production companies).
