Petrol 20 dolara inebilir

04 April in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Hürriyet | 4 Nisan 2015 Merve ERDİL 2012’de başlayan yaptırımlarla petrol ihracatı yarı yarıya azalan İran, yeniden petroldeki konumunu güçlendirecek gibi. Bunun ne kadar zaman alacağı belli olmasa da, uzmanlar İran petrolüyle fiyatın 20 dolara inebileceğini belirtiyor. İRAN, şüphesiz dünyanın enerji süper güçlerinden biri. Dünyanın kanıtlanmış en büyük ikinci doğalgaz ve dördüncü petrol rezervlerinin üzerinde oturuyor. 1974’teki ihtişamlı günlerinde, İran’ın petrol üretimi günlük 6 milyon varil gibi rekor düzeyleri gördü. Ancak o günlerden bugüne, devrim, savaş derken, son olarak da Batı’nın yaptırımlarıyla karşı karşıya kalan ülkenin petrol üretimi şimdilerde 2.7 milyon varil seviyelerinde. Bunun da yaklaşık 1 milyon varili ihraç ediliyor. Bu seviye, ambargo...

How to safeguard critical infrastructure against cyber attacks?

04 April in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

Hurriyet Daily News | 04 April 2015 |  Mehmet Öğütçü - H. Avni Aksoy* Turkey’s recent power blackout, whatever the real reasons are, has been a powerful reminder of how vulnerable we are to a potentially massive, unexpected infrastructure collapse. It should be viewed as a wake-up call to prompt our government, military and businesses to have a hard look at how we should prepare ourselves to counter this 21st century, asymmetrical threat to our economy, business, society and national security. If the power out(r)age in Turkey was indeed a technical glitch, then there is no doubt that the existing systems should be...

How to save Turkey’s energy security?

03 April in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

www.azernews.az | 3 APRIL 2015 By Rufiz Hafizoglu No matter how much Turkey tries, today it can’t get rid of its energy dependence. The country’s problem lies in that it imports about 90 percent of its consumed coal, 93 percent of its oil and nearly 97 percent of its natural gas. Turkey’s power plants generate 47 percent of the electricity using the natural gas it imports, mainly coming from Russia, while about 28 percent of the electricity is produced using the local and imported coal. Meanwhile, the water power plants produce only 18 percent of the electricity needed, and the remaining 7 percent is generated...

Reinvigorating Turkey’s Transatlantic Enthusiasm Through TTIP

03 April in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

German Marshall Fund of the United States' On Turkey Series | 2 April 2015  Joshua Walker & Alison O. Patch Turkey was conspicuously absent when the world’s elites gathered at February’s Munich Security Conference. At the last minute, Turkey’s delegation pulled out after Israel was added to a joint session on the Middle East.[1] Beyond the specifics of this ongoing bilateral dispute, Turkey’s absence is a broader sign of its leadership’s displeasure with its transatlantic partners and what Ankara sees as being taken for granted as a geostrategic ally. As they prepare for the April meetings of the World Bank and IMF in Washington next month, world leaders...

03 April in BEC IN THE MEDIA

www.dw.de | 17.03.2015 Mit der Transanatolischen Pipeline (Tanap) will sich die Türkei mehr Spielraum in der Energiepolitik verschaffen. Auch die EU könnte durch Tanap ihre Abhängigkeit von russischen Gasimporten reduzieren. Die Suche nach Alternativen zu russischem Erdgas läuft auf Hochtouren. Dabei haben die Regierungsschefs der westlichen Staaten in der Türkei einen neuen Partner entdeckt. Spätestens seit die Staatsoberhäupter der Türkei, Aserbaidschans und Georgiens vor knapp zwei Wochen den Startschuss für eine 1850 Kilometer lange Pipeline gaben, wendet sich der Blick in Richtung Bosporus. Umgerechnet mehr als neun Milliarden Euro kostet die Transanatolischen Pipeline (Tanap). Ab 2018 sollen jährlich 16 Milliarden Kubikmeter Gas in die...

LSEE Blog | 26 March 2015 South East European countries are now faced with the prospect of rethinking their energy strategy.

Recent shifts in the ever-evolving energy industry have demonstrated that not only the players, but the rules of the game, are changing. Investment levels have declined, price volatility has increased, advances in technology have revolutionised production and climate change has featured as an increasingly important part of the discussion. Despite this, Eurasia still remains a major region for production and transit, presenting a range of investment opportunities....

Gaz dinamikleri yön değiştiriyor

01 April in BEC IN THE MEDIA, PUBLICATIONS & MEDIA

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. Dahası, dünya gaz dinamikleri de tanınmaz ölçüde değişiyor. Sıvılaştırılmış doğalgaz üretimi ve ticareti önümüzdeki 10 yılda iki katına çıkacak. Kuzey Amerika’daki “kaya gazı devrimi” hem arz hem fiyat bakımından tüm hesapları...
