Political and Commercial Catalysts
This book is one of the results of a research project on Russian energy politics financed by the Petrosam 2 programme of the Research Council of Norway, grant no. 237687. The authors have benefited greatly from the work of other participants in the project, Julia S. P. Loe, Indra Øverland, Daniel Fjærtoft and Valeriy Kryukov, as well as the insights in publications from colleagues at OIES and comments from industry representatives who prefer anonymity. None of them bear any responsibility for the conclusions in this book, however.
