ABSTRACT
The article presents aspects of the legal characterization and regulation of the natural resource’s treatment that are under the joint tenancy of two or more states. The scientific novelty of the study is determined by that fact that shows the aspects of international interaction and the formation of the practice of legislative regulation of the use of natural resources, not only in the field of state and legal regulation but also within the context of private-public partnership. The relevance is determined by the fact that the main problem of the development of energy resources is an opportunity to determine and accordingly implement certain provisions for international business enterprises. The purpose of this article is to study the question of how representatives of international business can implement projects for the extraction of natural resources across boundary areas and under various conditions within the framework of cross-border cooperation. In the work, the methods of mathematical statistics, historical and legal methods were used. A three-level model was presented. This model determines the possibility of ensuring cooperation, then it forms its legal and regulatory framework and then determines instruments of an economic and legal nature that can be implemented in this field. The final point of the model is the finding of opportunities for investing in the development of natural energy resources on a parity basis, as well as the formation of an integrated environment that determines the possibility of integrating the subjects of international business into the economic environment of the state.

Regulacyjne aspekty zagospodarowania i wykorzystania zasobów energetycznych w strefach transgranicznych przez biznes międzynarodowy
współpraca transgraniczna, ekosystem, zarządzanie zasobami, koncesja, przyciąganie bezpośrednich inwestycji zagranicznych (BIZ)
W artykule przedstawiono aspekty prawnej charakterystyki i regulacji traktowania zasobów naturalnych, które są objęte wspólną dzierżawą dwóch lub więcej państw. O nowatorstwie naukowym opracowania przesądza fakt, który ukazuje aspekty interakcji międzynarodowych i kształtowania się praktyki legislacyjnej regulacji korzystania z zasobów naturalnych nie tylko w zakresie regulacji państwowych i prawnych, ale także w kontekście partnerstwa publiczno-prywatnego. Waga zagadnienia polega na tym, że głównym problemem wykorzystania takich zasobów energetycznych jest właściwe sformułowanie i odpowiednia realizacja przepisów międzynarodowych w zakresie przedsięwzięć gospodarczych. Celem artykułu jest zbadanie, w jaki sposób przedstawiciele biznesu międzynarodowego mogą realizować w ramach współpracy transgranicznej projekty wydobywania zasobów naturalnych w obszarach transgranicznych w różnych warunkach współpracy międzynarodowej. W pracy posłużono się metodami statystyki matematycznej, metodami analizy historycznej i prawnej. Przedstawiono trójpoziomowy model działania. Na pierwszym etapie określa się możliwość współpracy, następnie tworzy jej ramy prawne i regulacyjne, i na kolejnym etapie określa się instrumenty o charakterze ekonomiczno-prawnym, które można wdrożyć w tym zakresie. Ostatnim elementem przedstawionego modelu jest znalezienie możliwości zainwestowania w rozwój pozyskiwania zasobów energetycznych na zasadzie parytetu, a także tworzenie zintegrowanego środowiska, które determinuje możliwość integracji podmiotów biznesu międzynarodowego w otoczeniu gospodarczym.
