Natural gas remains the key source of energy for the European Union and the biggest share of it is currently supplied by Russia’s Gazprom. With energy security at the top of EU’s agenda, diversification of gas supply routes is set as top priority for the coming years.

South Eastern Europe (SEE) is a region expected to play a crucial role in mid- and long-term gas supply diversification for most of Europe. Currently at stake for SEE is the advantage of becoming a new hub of gas transit from Middle East, Central Asia and the Caspian region en route to EU consumers.

The struggle for control over delivery routes going through SEE will put into international conflict the interests of companies and governments on several continents from Italy to Iran and from Austria to Egypt.

Gas demand in the SEE countries themselves is forecasted to grow by 40% by 2020 which will make competition for their gas markets stronger in the coming years.

South Eastern Europe in the Big Eurasian Gas Game: New Supply and Transit Challenges examines:
  • current status and structural changes in the natural gas demand of SEE
  • natural gas exports to the SEE region; key transportation projects, planned and under construction
  • the Nabucco project as catalyst and driver of developments and changes on the SEE gas market
  • Gazprom’s plans for the region to combat competition challenges
  • growing impact of Turkey as a key transit country
  • competition between gas transportation projects, apart from Nabucco project and Gazprom’s plans
South Eastern Europe in the Big Eurasian Gas Game: New Supply and Transit Challenges is an important source of analysis for:
  • gas producing companies
  • gas transportation, distribution and trading companies, and utilities
  • power generation and industrial companies
  • service and equipment suppliers
  • investment and banking institutions
  • consultancies; financial advisors
  • government institutions
