Iran looks to energy reserves for post-sanctions influence

29 June in Uncategorized

[caption id="attachment_4208" align="alignleft" width="300"] President Hassan Rouhani is courting global energy firms in anticipation of an end to sanctions[/caption] BBC News | 5 June 2015 By Richard Anderson |  Iran is a bona fide superpower in global energy markets. Or rather it would be if reserves in the ground were the measuring stick. Taking oil and gas together, only Russia can boast of greater riches. The potential to be a major gas exporter, then, is huge - were it not, that is, for the small matter of sanctions. This rather obvious point is not lost on President Hasan Rouhani, who has wasted little time in repairing relations...

Rebalancing China’s Energy Strategy

27 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

www.goldmansachs.com | January 2015 Paulson Papers On Energy and Environment Damien Ma At a high-level meeting of China’s top finance and economics body in June 2014, President Xi Jinping called for a sweeping energy revolution in China, centered on five areas: demand, production, technology, institutional governance, and global markets. The exclusive focus on energy was unexpected for a meeting of the group, which typically deals with general macroeconomic issues.¹ But addressing energy matters at such a meeting also made much sense. In his comments, Xi explicitly linked China’s energy security to the country’s economic prospects, arguing that a long-term energy strategy would need to...

Russia’s high-stakes game in Iraq: Expanding their role in the Middle East

23 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Second Life Of Defence | 2014-01-19 |  By Stephen Blank |  Ten years after the American invasion Iraq is in danger of disintegration.  Its stability cannot be taken for granted or even assumed. Evidently Iraq is not far from being a failed state and Syria is already deep in the throes of protracted civil war. Both states may be racked for years by internal conflict, violence, instability, and the “mushrooming” of terrorist groups, given the anarchy prevailing there.[i] At the end of 2013 the U.S. had to rush sizable amounts of weapons to Iraq to stave off a major Sunni offensive in the form of Iraqi...

Avrupa'ya doğalgaz taşıyacak yeni bir güzergah arayan Rusya, AB'den gelen itirazların ardından Avrupa'ya gaz taşıyacak...

20 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

The Energy Exchange  |  27‐29 January, Vienna, Austria 8th European Gas Conference  | John Roberts |  Session Facilitator: John Roberts, Energy Security Specialist, Methinks Ltd. Roberts introduced the session by saying that Russia was serious about "Turkish Stream" and that he considered it most probable that the first two strings of this proposed four‐string, 63‐bcm/y system would be built.   He noted the fact that Turkish Stream could still utilise three‐quarters of South Stream’s original 930‐km offshore route from the Russkaya Compressor station near Anapa on Russia’s Black Sea coast to South Stream’s planned landfall near Varna in Bulgaria. He then highlighted the fact that Turkish...

20 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

www.europeangashub.com  | 06/05/2015 by Manfred Hafner and Simone Tagliapietra Introduction On December 1, 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin surprised the energy world by announcing, during a state visit to Turkey, the demise of the long-planned South Stream pipeline project and the launch of a new project to evacuate Russian gas to Turkey and South-East Europe bypassing Ukraine: Turkish Stream. Since 2007 South Stream has represented a key element of the discussions concerning the EU security of gas supply and the overall EU-Russia relations. For this reason, the unexpected demise of South Stream and the quick rise of Turkish Stream need to be carefully evaluated both...

Statoil | June 2015 Eirik Wærness, Chief economist Long-term macro and market outlook June 2015 2015 is an important year. It will give signals about global decision makers' ability to agree on an effective climate policy that might lead to real progress, or not. We might see Western sanctions against Iran lifted. Relations between Cuba and its northern neighbour seem to be rapidly improving. On the other hand, relations between Russia and the West are cold and might not improve any time soon. China is fighting to reduce the most negative effects of its polluting energy mix, while trying to restructure its economy and...

Iran and Russia: A new alignment?

20 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

www.NEWSBASE.com| May 2015 A NewsBase Research Briefing   Iran is home to around 34 tcm of gas, but at present it lacks extra production capacity for export. FOR the past 30 years, Iran has lived in a more or less self-imposed geopolitical isolation. From Tehran, the view has been of a hostile US, its no-less hostile sidekick the UK, less-hostile Europeans usually aligned with the Anglo-Saxons, hostile Sunni Arabs across the water to the west, troublesome Sunni Pashtuns and Pakistan lurking in the east, Iraqi Sunnis dominating on its western border, and a chaotic semi-secular collection of ‘stans to the north. Less hostile Russians and...

The Outlook for Azerbaijani Gas Supplies to Europe:

20 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies | June 2015 Gulmira Rzayeva, OIES Research Associate The Outlook for Azerbaijani Gas Supplies to Europe: Challenges and Perspectives Azerbaijan's gas sector and gas production is dominated by one giant field, Shah Deniz, which is currently producing around 9 bcm/a at its plateau level. The next phase of development of the field will increase the plateau by some 17 bcm/a, to a total of more than 26 bcm/a from both phases from late 2018. This major gas upstream project required new export infrastructure. The South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP), currently has up to 8 bcm/a capacity, and transports gas from...
