Access to energy resources in Central and Southeast Europe is a matter of both national security and economic competitiveness. The region’s exposure to outside supplies of hydrocarbons and monopolistic abuse is a liability. The Nabucco pipeline that was supposed to bring new supplies of gas from the Caspian has failed to materialize. Nevertheless, Central European countries and companies have already made significant progress in creating a more liquid and competitive regional gas market even if gaps remain in interconnectivity as well as access to alternative supplies.
What are the key challenges businesses face in the energy sector in the region? What are the prospects in downstream, midstream and upstream? What are the impediments to and the future of regional energy cooperation? Can Central and Southeastern Europe benefit directly or indirectly from the US shale gas revolution?
