The good governance of energy resources and its role in the development of hydrocarbon producer countries is an area of growing interest on the global agenda. The European Union, as an actor that brings together the dual condition of being both a large global importer of hydrocarbons and a promoter of good governance norms, has special interest in the development of standards for improvement in the governance of energy resources.
