[EBOOK] Local Content: Levelling The Playing Field
The oil and gas industry has been extracting and refining petroleum since the 1820s. In the two centuries since this began in Russia and Central Europe, companies and governments the world over have been working with, and sometimes against each other, to fulfil their objectives.
In the past, operating companies have ruled the roost, providing the means to extract the hydrocarbons and taking home the profits. In recent times, local content - quotas imposed by governments and national oil companies (NOCs) to secure opportunities for home-grown talent and organisations- have sought to redress the balance.
In this ebook, we take a look at examples from Africa to the Middle East, and take in the perspectives of government and industry alike to provide a rounded view on inroads made and job still left to do in the field of local content.
