The energy demand: main determinant We will be returning later to the relationship of competition-substitution between the sources, after dealing with the theme of determinants of energy demand function. Extensive literature on the subject (Girod, 1977) has identified hundreds of these features, though they can mainly be attributed (directly or indirectly) to economic production. By studying the long-term trends of energy consumption - mUltiplied by a factor of 15 from the start of the century to the end of the Eighties - we may see that 80%-90% of their increase can be attributed to the growth of economies (as expressed by gross domestic product).

There was much more reaction from consumption in Canada and in the United States mainly due to their different distribution according to sectors of use (much more concentrated in the sector of transports and in domestic use). 1. THE ECONOMICS AND POLITICS OF OIL It would be impossible to get a clear idea of how things work in the oil industry by referring merely to its basic economics. This would exclude the political aspect, which has always been vital to the workings of the oil market. With the arrival of oil the development of modern economies, at first centred around the national coal industries, became detached from direct or part ownership of its essential energy supplies.

In our analysis we can define three separate types of negotiations which have proved crucial to the development of the world oil industry. The first are those between oil producing countries and oil companies. Institutions, organisations and property rights have, over time, defined the incentives for companies operating in the sector, their competitive business relations and production costs. Profit-sharing in the oil industry has (at least until the late Eighties) always been the subject of negotiation between conflicting spheres of interest, in which purely political considerations interact and often overlap with other typically economic ones.
