Europe and the Geopolitics of Energy Study Group

Gulmira Rzayeva, Center for Strategic Studies (CSS) of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES), Oxford University, will discuss "Azerbaijan Gas in new market and geopolitical environments." Hosted by Ole Gunnar Austvik, M-RCBG Senior Fellow, HKS. Advance registration is not required. All sessions are open.

Azerbaijan and its State Oil Company SOCAR have been developing the multi-billion Southern Gas Corridor, including  the upstream project of the giant Shah Deniz field phase II and long distance pipelines to and contracts with buyers in Turkey and Europe.  If politics allow, natural gas may however flow also from Iran and other resource rich Persian Gulf countries through the same corridor. Russian gas and the proposed Turkish Stream pipeline across the Black Sea are also targeting the same market, which is the case for the increased international LNG trade. Ms Rzayeva will discuss Azerbaijan's capability to provide gas export volumes without long-term contracts beyond Shah Deniz phase 1 and 2 developments in the 2020s and 2030s, and where this gas could flow in the new market and geopolitical environment.
