Energy and Natural Resources

Moscow - May 22, 2014

Moscow 05222014


The array of energy resources housed within Russia’s territory is nearly as vast and complex as the history of its production. Yet despite ranking among the world’s largest oil producers and topping the list for gas exports, the country’s fluctuating business environment and tendency toward resource nationalism have inhibited foreign investment and hindered economic development.

With world energy consumption on a steady incline and an unpredictable market, what steps are necessary to maintain a competitive edge? How are industry leaders addressing the needs of the state and the demands of the global market? 

Chicago Booth invites you to join us in Moscow for a discussion with Booth alumni and industry professionals who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of the energy and natural resources industry.
