Russia's status as a current and future energy producer is close to unrivaled. However, the countries energy geopolitical reach is limited, constrained by dependence on the European market, as a result of geography and historical investments. The authors claim that Russia's limited acces to seaborne export have historically under-optimised revenues from energy exports, as well as Moscow's direct energy market influence. however, Russia has been rethinking its energy strategy in order to assert itself on the international stage.

This study explores the impact of this strategy on the global energy scene. The study is cracked down into the following projects:

  • Scenarios for Russian Natural Gas Exports: The Role of Domestic Investment, the Caspian, and LNG
  • Russia's Regions and Energy Policy in East Siberia
  • Russia, Central Asia, and the Caspian - How Important is the Energy and Security Tradeoff?
  • The Future of the Russian Oil Industry
