The Market for North Sea Crude Oil

This is the first comprehensive Study of the market for North Sea crudes. Written by a team comprised of academic economists and professionals from the oil industry, the book analyses and describes all the main features of the market. The operations of the market are examined in detail, and the main buyers and sellers of North Sea oil are identified and their behaviour explained.

The book discusses the institutional framework under which the North Sea market functions, the policies of the UK and Norwegian governments and the oil fiscal regime in these two countries. Because of the role played by the North Sea in the world oil market, this study provides considerable insight on the important issues of the price of oil.
