Governance of Oil in Africa: Unfinished Business Paris : Ifri, 2009. - 198 p. (Gouvernance européenne et géopolitique de l'énergie, n° 6), (Les études Ifri)
A look at the world's oil and gas resources would lead any investor to Russia or the Middle East with the more adventuresome exploring opportunities in the Caspian Basin. But many of these oil and gas provinces are largely off limits for international investors, or the investment conditions have become so unpredictable that investors are forced to look elsewhere for the oil and gas to meet the world's increasing demand. Even if today's economic crisis has taken the urgency out of today's supply and demand balances, economic recovery will soon reveal the need for ever-increasing investment upstream.
