Turkey as a member of the energy community

17 February in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

Dailysabah.com | February 17, 2015 JANEZ KOPAC AND MEHMET EKINCI EU - Turkey relations go back almost to the origins of European integration in the 1950s. Turkey first applied to join the European Economic Community as an associated member in 1959. This resulted in the signing of the Ankara Agreement in 1963. As of today, Turkey has attained EU candidate country status. Membership negotiations are still ongoing, albeit without any serious progress. As far as the opening of the energy chapter in these negotiations is concerned, there is no doubt that its blockage on the European Union side constitutes a "political" bottleneck....

КАРТ-БЛАНШ. «Турецкий поток» как общеевропейский проект

16 February in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

www.ng.ru | 16.02.2015 Строительство газопровода без координации с ЕС чревато непоправимыми политическими и экономическими последствиями Данила Бочкарев |  Мехмет Огутчу Об авторе: Данила Бочкарев, Данила Андреевич Бочкарев – старший научный сотрудник Института «Восток-Запад» (Брюссель); Мехмет Огутчу – президент Босфорского энергетического клуба (Стамбул). Историческое соглашение, подписанное в Анкаре 27 января с.г., подтвердило решимость России добиваться реализации подводного газопровода и тем самым кардинально сократить, не обращаясь за помощью к Брюсселю, зависимость от транзита через территорию Украины. Действительно, Москва больше не рассчитывает на исключения из правил Третьего энергопакета и намерена, не полагаясь на милость Брюсселя, продавать газ на границе Евросоюза с Турцией. Если все пойдет по плану, газпромовский газ,...

Low oil prices serve Western strategic interests by starving some of the most troublesome actors in the world of their major source of revenue - countries such as Iran, the leading state sponsor of terrorism, and...

29 January in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

www.oxfordenergy.org | January 2015 By Jonathan Stern, Simon Pirani, Katja Yafimava |  Introduction In 2006, Gazprom and the Italian company ENI announced a joint venture to build the South Stream pipeline system across the Black Sea, and signed a memorandum of understanding the following year.1 Subsequently, EdF and Wintershall joined this technically challenging project – four pipelines, each 930 km in length to be laid from Anapa on the Russian Black Sea coast to Varna in Bulgaria in water depths of up to 2,250 metres.

The Turkish Stream: Where to go from here?

29 January in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Hürriyet Daily News | January 29/2015 Mehmet Öğütçü / Danila Bochkarev |  The landmark agreement on the Turkish Stream reached on Jan. 27 shows Moscow’s determination to avoid Ukrainian transit at all costs and start its implementation without delay. If all goes well, natural gas currently flowing from Russia to the EU via Ukraine will in the future only be delivered via Turkey through the Turkish Stream. This decision followed an announcement of an important change in Gazprom’s business model in Europe – the company is no longer eager to access downstream, plans to sell its gas at the EU’s border and repatriated its...
