The quadratic oil extraction oligopoly

John Hartwick and Michael Brolley

Resource and Energy Economics, 2008, vol. 30, issue 4, 568-577

Abstract: Each extractor has a distinct initial endowment of oil and a distinct quadratic extraction cost and faces a linear industry demand schedule. We observe in a discrete-time model with a finite number of periods that the open loop and closed loop solutions are the same if initial stocks are such that each competitor is extracting in every period in which her competitors are extracting.
