Η κατάρρευση του μύθου των μεγάλων πολυεθνικών εταιρειών πετρελαίου

Η. Κονοφάγος , Ν. Λυγερός
Κάποτε η κοινή γνώμη θεωρούσε ότι οι πολυεθνικοί πετρελαϊκοί γίγαντες ήταν οι γνωστές σε όλους μας 7 αδελφές που έγιναν 6 στην συνέχεια με τις αγορές μεταξύ τους, δηλαδή η ExxonMobil, η Chevron, η Shell, η BP, η ENI & η TOTAL. Όμως ο κόσμος της ενέργειας σήμερα έχει αλλάξει δραματικά και ριζικά από την εποχή που όλοι σχεδόν οι πολιτικοί μας συνιστούσαν να προσέχουμε πολύ τα 7 πολυεθνικά αρπακτικά ή όπως χαρακτήριζαν τότε τις 7 αδελφές του τομέα του Πετρελαίου. Έτσι η ενέργεια άλλαξε αλλά όχι η πολιτική. Παρ' όλα αυτά το κοινό που δεν παρακολουθεί τις εξελίξεις, εξακολουθεί ακόμη και σήμερα να πιστεύει ότι οι μεγάλες διεθνείς πετρελαϊκές εταιρείες ή Super Majors όπως λέγονται είναι αυτές που ελέγχουν τις τιμές του πετρελαίου και την πλειοψηφία των παγκοσμίων αποθεμάτων υδρογονανθράκων. Οι παρακάτω εικόνες δείχνουν ότι αυτό δεν ισχύει πλέον και έχει καταρρεύσει ο μύθος αυτός, ενώ οι πολιτικοί μας, αυτοί που είναι άσχετοι με τον τομέα αυτό, εξακολουθούν να χρησιμοποιούν για να προωθούν άλλης μορφής συμφέροντα
