Homa Motamen-Scobi London December 1987 Preface In 1990 both OPEC and the OECD will celebrate their thirtieth anntvers­ aries. OPEC was founded - rather unnoticed - by oil-producing countries still struggling to gain control over national petroleum resources. Future members were still under colonial rule. The foremost aim of the new organization - years before it was able to make metropolitan newspaper headlines - was stabilizing oil prices. Stability in those days meant prevent­ ing oil prices from falling in real terms. The OECD was formed by mostly mature industrial economies marking the normalization of the postwar international economy after years of reconstruction, strict trade regulations, etc. The aim of the new organization was to promote 'the highest sustainable growth and employment' in member countries. Incidentally, 1960 was also the year which gave birth to a more loosely defined block in the world community, namely the underdeveloped countries, qS the African colonial empires finally broke up. The two organizations became adversaries in the 1970s in the power struggle over the energy flows of the world.

Booknews
A collection of 13 articles that grew out of several years research in petroleum economics by government and university bodies in Norway. The papers, presented at a June 1989 conference in Asgardstrand, Norway, report on a number of modelling efforts, analyze some recent developments in energy markets, and discuss implications and problems for decision making and planning. Norway, with its North Sea fields, is a petroleum exporting country, so the perspective would be most useful to other producing, rather than consuming, countries. The sections focus on the natural gas market in western Europe, managing resources in the context of the overall economy, and aspects of prices in the world market. Annotation c.
