Wheel of Fortune: The Coming Challenges of Russian Oil

February 19, 2013 // 12:00pm1:00pm

The Russian oil industry—which vies with Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest producer and exporter of oil, providing nearly 12 percent of the global supply—is facing mounting problems that could send shock waves through the Russian economy. Wheel of Fortune tells the story of this vital industry from the last years of communism to its uncertain future. Tracking the interdependence among Russia’s oil industry, politics, and economy, Thane Gustafson, Senior Director, Russian and Caspian Energy, IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and Professor, Department of Government, Georgetown University, shows how the stakes extend beyond international energy security to include the potential threat of a destabilized Russia.
