From the Paper:

"Over the past century, natural energy resources have become increasingly important. With the beginning of the industrialization, the role of oil and gas has shifted away from just being the provider of basic human needs to become the most significant source of economic growth worldwide. Today, the limited natural resources are used at an exponential rate, highlighting the general shortage of fossil fuels as well as the lack of sustainable energy solutions. Consequently, international oil companies take an increasingly important role in today's world economy as they are the main distributors of fossil fuels. Dealing with the issue of future energy supply and its constraints, the increasing power of international oil companies is often overestimated."
