Energy production and use is one of the dominant issues of our generation, no matter where you live in the world. The energy sector is confronting many economic, social and political challenges to its “license to operate.”
The economies of Russia and the CIS continue to rely heavily on the energy sector. Russia has the largest known natural gas reserves of any country in the world and eighth largest oil reserves. Russia exports 70% of the oil it produces. It is also the world's fourth largest electricity producer after the United States, China, and Japan. Kazakhstan has the second largest oil reserves and second largest oil production in the CIS after Russia. The country also has large reserves of natural gas and is on the verge of being a net gas exporter.
PBN H+K Strategies helps energy companies make wise investments in their reputations and connect with the public audiences who are impacted by their business strategies. This commitment allows them to earn a “license to operate” by generating political support, broad social acceptance and appreciation of the economic benefits of energy production and generation. Our services and energy experience have been put to work on behalf of BP, the Caspian Pipeline Consortium, Enel, ExxonMobil, Gazprom, Gazprom Neft, Nord Stream, Rompetrol, Rosneft, Shell, and Statoil, among many others.
