Abstract

The Energy Scenarios and Policy FEEM Press series publishes the output of the Energy and Scenarios and Policy (ESP) research programme of Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei. The ESP programme aims to carry out interdisciplinary, scientifically sound, prospective and policy-oriented applied research, targeted at political and business decision makers. This aim is achieved through an integrated quantitative and qualitative analysis of energy scenarios and policies. This innovative and interdisciplinary approach puts together the major factors driving the change in global energy dynamics (i.e. technology, economy, geopolitics and sociological aspects). The ESP programme applies this methodology to a wide range of issues (energy demand and supply, infrastructures, financing, market analyses, socio-economic impacts of energy policies) that are explored from economic, geopolitical and institutional perspectives.

Because of its strategic geographical location at the crossroads of Caspian, Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean gas-rich countries and Europe, Turkey has progressively emerged in the international political, economic and energy debates as a potential key regional gas hub. In particular, this point is often raised in the discussion concerning the rise of Turkey as a leading regional power and in the debate about the future prospects of the EU-Turkey relations. However, by going beyond the political slogans and by focusing on the concrete gas realities around Turkey this picture could be seriously put into question. This volume seeks to provide a contribution to the current debate by providing a realistic assessment of the potential role of Turkey in the regional gas markets, beyond the mainstream rhetoric.
