Abstract

The political relationship between Norway and Russia will influence the development of Barents Sea oil and gas. The state plays a decisive role in both the
Norwegian and Russian parts of the sea. It does so as a regulator, through taxation,
and through the national oil and gas companies, Gazprom, Rosneft, and
Statoil. Thus, if the two states have a good relationship characterized by mutual
trust, they can coordinate, search for complementarities, and mitigate issues
that arise. Furthermore, due to the rising cost of oil and gas production in the
Arctic, many oil and gas fields there may deliver small returns on investments.
Scale economies brought about by coordinated development, joint infrastructure,
and information sharing can tip projects from being commercially unviable
to viable. But this depends on the ability and willingness of the two states
to actively work together.

Abstract

This chapter makes an empirical contribution by
studying whether the launch of BRI has led to a shift in Central Asian attitudes
towards and perceptions of China. We discuss the interaction between China and
each of the five Central Asian states, highlighting local attitudes towards and perceptions
of the big neighbour. We focus on economic interaction, infrastructure
and education initiatives as they are among the main pillars of the BRI agenda,
while acknowledging that cooperation on political, diplomatic, and security issues
has been no less important for shaping perceptions of China in Central Asia.
One limitation of our analysis should be mentioned. It is difficult to separate
BRI analytically from other ongoing projects within the bilateral cooperation
between China and the Central Asian countries, “as many bilateral agreements
are now being brought under the Silk Road and BRI umbrella” (Dave 2018,
p. 100). We attempt to overcome this limitation by tracing changes in attitudes
towards and perception of China in general since 2013, when BRI was
announced, and whether the change can be attributed to the promotion of BRI.

Abstract

What are some of the possible futures for Barents Sea oil and gas? This chapter draws upon the key trends and issues covered by the book’s thematic chapters
and presents three scenarios on the prospects for Norwegian–Russian
cooperation in the Barents Sea. Ultimately human interaction will play a large
part in how the Barents Sea is developed, and we have therefore given the scenarios
metaphorical titles related to interaction between people.

Abstract

The Arctic region contains large amounts of natural resources considered necessary to sustain global economic growth, so it is unsurprising that it is increasingly susceptible to political, economic, environmental, and even military conflicts. This book looks in detail at the preconditions and outlook for international cooperation on the development of Arctic petroleum resources, focusing on Norwegian–Russian cooperation in the Barents Sea towards 2025. The authors provide a cross-disciplinary approach including geopolitical, institutional, technological, corporate and environmental perspectives to analyse the underlying factors that shape the future development of the region. Three future scenarios are developed, exploring various levels of cooperation and development influenced by and resulting from potential political, commercial and environmental circumstances. Through these scenarios, the book improves understanding of the challenges and opportunities for Arctic petroleum resource development and promotes further consideration of the possible outcomes of future cooperation.
