If government control has led to higher prices, why is that good?  I agree that having a market control energy is wrong without some regulations but I can also see a private company not wanting to invest in something that is not yielding the best return it's capable of....
It will be interesting to see what compromise can be made.

It can turn out to be more beneficial and profitable to the producing nation.

"the purpose of obtaining more revenue from oil for oil producing countries. Nationalization eliminates the concession system—in which private international companies control oil resources within oil-producing countries—and allows oil-producing countries to regain control."

If it does happen, it ain´t gonna go down easy:

Spain's secretary of state for EU affairs Inigo Mendez de Vigo warned that Argentina would become "an international pariah" if it were to go through with such plans.
