ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes the need for international oil companies and Middle East oil ministries to enhance their relationship to counter the increasing oil prices. For more than three decades, the massive oil fields of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have been a closed book to outsiders. The combination of soaring oil prices and rocketing global demand for crude is beginning to open doors for big players which have the capital investment and technology needed to develop hard-to-access reserves.
