Capital Dergisi | 1 Nisan 2015 Mehmet Öğütçü | Enerjik Bakış Köşesi İlk keşfedildiğinde bölge ülkelerinde büyük umutlar yaratan Doğu Akdeniz gazı bir süredir durgunluk içinde. Ne yatırıma başlamak için para bulunabildi ne çıkarıldıktan sonra gazı satacak güvenilir müşteri çıktı ne de tüm bu hesapları altüst eden jeopolitik gerilimler gevşedi. Fırsat olmasına fırsat var da bu riskler zengin gaz yataklarının ticarileştirilip refah ve güvenliğe katkı sağlaması çabalarının önünde ciddi risk oluşturuyor.

28 March in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

Hürriyet Daily News | March/28/2015 CONTRIBUTOR | MEHMET ÖĞÜTÇÜ - CHRISTIAN SCHWARCK There is a Chinese character that equates crisis with opportunity. We face such a situation as the energy market turbulence, created by the oil price collapse, declining investments and geopolitical tensions, is in full swing. The process of adjustment in the energy market is far from over. The European Union’s political leaders and mandarins in Brussels have grasped the opportunity to move forward with a series of new initiatives...

Caspian Center for Energy and Environment Policy Brief (CCEE) | March 2015 | No.13 Background Control over the transportation of energy resources from Central Asia to Europe is a crucial determinant in Russia’s energy and pipeline policies.

13 March in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

www.euobserver.com | 13 March, 2015   By WILLEM TH. OOSTERVELD AND SIJBREN DE JONG Europeans are said to lack geopolitical nous. They think too narrowly, and are loath to use coercive tools to achieve strategic objectives. The EU’s recent proposal to create an Energy Union was an opportunity for Europe to prove this sentiment wrong, and show that Brussels has ideas on how to link continental energy policy to geopolitical ends, and come up with a long-term solution to our...

02 March in BEC IN THE MEDIA, ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Hürriyet Daily News | March 2, 2015  MEHMET ÖĞÜTÇÜ The ongoing energy crisis, originating from the substantial and totally unexpected drop in the price of oil, is nothing like what we have seen before. The historic slide has roiled the energy sector, with fallout ranging from stalled oil and gas developments to bankruptcy filings and imbalances in consumer countries.

Türkiye enerjisi: Nereye gidiyoruz?

01 March in BEC IN THE MEDIA, PUBLICATIONS & MEDIA

Capital Dergisi | 01 Mart 2015 Mehmet Öğütçü | Enerjik Bakış Enerjisiz çarklar dönmüyor. Eksikliği ya da azlığı, fiyatının iniş çıkışı, sübvansiyonunun kısılması iktidarları devirebiliyor. Kaynaklar üzerindeki rekabet, sınır ihtilafları, boru hattı güzergahları ve münhasır ekonomik bölgelere giriş-çıkış komşularla sıcak çatışmalara ya da jeopolitik gerilimlere yol açabiliyor. Enerjinin “yumuşak karın” olduğu ülkelerin ekonomi, dış politika, güvenlik ve yatırım kararları birbirinden bağımsız alınamıyor. 2023’e kadar (mevcut görünümde pek gerçekçi olmasa da) dünyanın en büyük ilk 10 ekonomisi arasına girmeyi...
