Southern European Energy Corridor: Status, Prospects and Geopolitics

New pipelines are carrying natural gas and oil from the Caspian and Russia to Turkey and beyond to Europe. In this southern European landscape, pipeline proposals like Nabucco and South Stream have given way to more focused initiatives, including the Southern Corridor Pipeline and a newly proposed “Turkish Stream” to parallel the Blue Stream pipeline from Russia across the Black Sea to Turkey. At stake is the energy security of Central and Eastern Europe, which historically have depended almost entirely on Russia for their energy supplies.

Southern European Energy Corridor: Status, Prospects and Geopolitics

New pipelines are carrying natural gas and oil from the Caspian and Russia to Turkey and beyond to Europe.  In this southern European landscape, pipeline proposals like Nabucco and South Stream have given way to more focused initiatives, including the Southern Corridor Pipeline and a newly proposed “Turkish Stream” to parallel the Blue Stream pipeline from Russia across the Black Sea to Turkey. At stake is the energy security of Central and Eastern Europe, which historically have depended almost entirely on Russia for their energy supplies.  The European Union is stepping up its efforts to diversify its energy supplies with the vision of an energy union at the end of the process, but EU members vary in their approach.  Senior experts from industry, government and think tanks will assess the status, prospects and geopolitics of the Southern European Energy Corridor.

We appreciate the support of SOCAR for this program.
