Abstract

While the concept of the rentier state is common knowledge to Middle East scholars, very little has been written concerning the basic support and revenue tool for such states — the national oil companies. This article examines the micro-economic, financial, and managerial behavior of national oil companies, assesses their economic efficiency, and relates their operations to rentier state politics.
