Talk Description
Political and demographic pressures, to employ more of their own people and only offer unattractive commercial and fiscal terms, limit the number and scope of effective joint ventures with experienced outside partners.

Gas may provide more attractive growth, where there is good market access and prices and terms are attractive enough, for example where there is a shortfall against growing domestic demand.

Middle East countries are looking to diversify away from their heavy reliance on oil, before growth in demand for oil slows, as the world moves to lower emitting fuels and renewable energy like solar, which the Middle East has in abundance. But regional and geopolitical rivalries are as intense as ever and cast a long shadow.
