"The Expansion of NOCs: What Strengthening State-Owned Enterprises Means for Global Energy"
(2022). Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Dissertation, , Old Dominion University, DOI: 10.25777/mgn0-kf68
The rise of National Oil Companies (NOCs) in the 20th century has been well documented. However, little work has been done with respect to how these entities have evolved in the 21st century. This study aims to measure the changing strength of contemporary NOCs by comparing them to their privatized counterparts. Using this comparative analysis, the study will explain the changing global energy landscape and the potential internecine effects on the international system.
