Said A. Al-Shaikh, “Foreign Direct Investment in Saudi Arabia: Stimulating Structural Changes and Global Integration.” This paper looks at the relatively low level of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Saudi Arabia. The author also includes a comparison with FDI in East Asia and evaluates FDI flow patterns in Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Korea.

Dan Whelan, “An Overview of Future Canadian Oil Development.” The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief overview of projected Canadian oil supply development over the 2000-2010 time period.

Hisanori Nei, “The Transformation of Japanese Energy Policy.” In the late 1990s, Japan confronted a number of critical elements that may produce a change in its energy policy. The author places Japanese energy usage in comparison to the nine other largest energy-consuming nations and outlines Japan’s three “E” energy policy: energy supply, economic growth, and environmental protection. Special emphasis is placed on the role of nuclear energy.

Øystein Noreng, “The New Balance of Private and Public Interests in the Restructuring of the Petroleum Industry − A European Perspective.” The main argument of this paper is that energy markets invite political intervention because commercial energy is an essential productive factor and because energy markets are inherently imperfect.

Kurt S. Abraham, “A Revised Global Drilling Outlook for 2000 and Update on Iraq.” This article evaluates the expected upstream energy spending and drilling activities for 2000 and changes from their 1999 levels. The forecasts used in this paper are based on internally generated data, surveys, and input by regular contributors to World Oil. Additionally, there is an in-depth assessment of the Iraqi upstream sector.

Eugene M. Khartukov, “Russia's Oil Business: Any Niche for a National Oil Company?” After a period of dramatic decentralization and privatization of Russia’s oil industry in the 1990s, which transformed the wholly state-run oil distribution system into mostly privatized companies, the pendulum of oil control has started to swing back in 2000. This paper asks if there is any role for a national oil company in Russia again or has the liberalization of the Russian oil markets passed the point of no return.

Mohammed Sadeqi, “Arab Power Utilities: Keeping Pace with Demand.” This paper looks at the past, current, and future of electric utilities in Arab countries.

Jean-Pierre Jonchère, “Gas/Power Synergy: A Least-Cost and Environmentally Sensitive Option.” After years of dominance by coal and fuel oil, other hydrocarbons are staging a massive comeback in the power generation sector, except this time the lighter components are being used. This paper evaluates the role of natural gas as a power generation source.

John Roberts, “Turkey as a Major Energy Driver.” The author looks at the role of Caspian natural gas imports as a part of Turkey’s future energy equation.
