Europe and the Geopolitics of Energy Study Group

Mikhail Krutikhin, Editor and Partner RusEnergy, Moscow, Russia; Former TASS correspondent, will discuss “Russia’s Energy Export: Business or politics?” Hosted by Ole Gunnar Austvik, M-RCBG Senior Fellow, Harvard Kennedy School. Advance registration is not required. All sessions are open.

Russian oil production and exports are expected to decrease within a few years due to depletion of commercially recoverable reserves. In an attempt to maintain its gas export potential, how flexible will Gazprom be in contracts and compliance with business regulations of the EU? Will low energy prices, piled upon international sanctions against Russia, make its oil and gas industry a game changer in the country’s international policy rather than a tool for promoting interests of Moscow abroad? What are the roles of oligarchs and corruption in the Russian oil industry?
