The Norwegian University Center in St. Petersburg in collaboration with The Norwegian Consulate General welcomes you to the public lecture by Professor Indra Øverland at the Norwegian University Center office.
In this lecture, Indra Øverland will present three scenarios for the development of the petroleum sector in the Barents Sea. The main theme of the lecture is how cooperation between Norway and Russia can facilitate better utilization and development of the resources in the Barents Sea due to scale economies, coordination and other factors. The lecture will also provide an introduction to Shell's foresight methodology for scenario building. The lecture is based on book on the same topic currently being published by Routledge. This book is the product of the joint effort of a Norwegian-Russian interdisciplinary team of academics and has a preface by former Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
