Oil & Gas

Natural resources have almost always played the determining role in a country's economy. A growth in global energy prices and demand has increased even more the role of the oil and gas sector in a country's economy and questions concerning energy supplies are now among the key political problems of international relations. The IEF takes a direct part in establishing Russian energy policy and actively works with European governments and academic institutions to draft mutually-beneficial, non-discriminatory policies in the energy sector between Russia and European countries.
