The New Eurasia Energy Landscape
Date : Mon., November 6, 2017 Category : Conferences/Symposia
Co-Sponsored by Foreign Policy Research Institute, German Marshall Fund, and Silk Road Studies Institute
By some measures, Eurasia’s energy landscape has changed more in the past several years than in the previous several decades. The price of oil remains at half its level of four years ago, and shows no sign of increasing. Natural gas is now just as easily transported by ship as by pipeline, opening new possibilities for obtaining gas supply. The pipeline network within Europe and between the EU and its neighbors is also in flux, thanks both to new pipeline projects such as TurkStream and Nord Stream II as well as to new interconnectors between EU member states. Demands for decarbonizing the energy supply is driving big shifts in the types of energy in use.
This conference will examine these trends through three different lenses. The first session will focus on Russia’s energy sector, particularly its domestic political and economic drivers. Second, a panel of experts will discuss efforts to reform energy sectors in Black Sea states, notably but not exclusively in Ukraine. Finally, the conference will conclude The conference will conclude with a discussion of future gas supply and pipeline routes, including the role of Central Asia, especially Turkmenistani gas, as well as Trans-Caspian and Black Sea pipeline projects.
