Abstract

This article deals with the current change of the institutional and organisational framework of the Russian oil industry. Regarding this evolution, the main characteristic is the increasing involvement of national oil companies in upstream activities. The aim is to explain this reorganisation by relying on the New Institutional Economics framework. These theoretical works highlight that institutional environment and governance structures complement each other. We argue that the current reorganisation is an attempt to increase the coherence of the institutional arrangements governing transactions between the Russian state and private oil companies.
