They have a wealth of experience in offshore production, the most advanced technology, highly qualified personnel, powerful capital. A key player in oil and gas production is seen by the international consortium. Theoretically, it can have multiple sources of funding for their activities: financial resources of the companies-founders; funds raised on financial markets (loans, credits, etc.); various tax benefits and perhaps subsidies. As noted by the scientists of the Center for external economic research, cooperation and joint ventures with leading Western firms are a promising way to overcome technical backwardness and increasing the competitiveness of Russian enterprises.

To build economic relations with energy transnational necessary not on the liberal market, and the public-institutional basis. Key elements of soft institutional infrastructure should be: the concept and strategy of development of oil and gas resources of shelf; the system of contractual relations with companies-subsoil users; the system of planning and goal programming; active foreign trade policy.

We clearly see that both countries have a high level of globalization, and the company holds a strong position in the international market. We can only advise companies stick to their course and continue to explore new territory, through the introduction of new technology and innovation management.

In the course of this work, we realized that the Netherlands have close trade relations with Russia. This is not true for the UK. Russia need to work on the Russian-British trade relations, taking into account all the peculiarities of the country, as set out in our work.

This course work is a necessary practice for students studying international management. We learned how to analyze the peculiarities of doing business in different countries, to make decisions about further cooperation with several of these countries.
