Azerbaijan Breaks Through Into Eastern Europe
ANALYSIS, CACI Analyst, Volume 15, No. 3, February 06 2013. Webpage Link

Abstract:
On December 7, 2012 Russia began construction of its South Stream gas pipeline. Earlier in 2012 the European consortium behind the Nabucco pipeline formally submitted a revised scenario called Nabucco West to Azerbaijan and Azerbaijan and Turkey announced plans to build the Transanatolian pipeline or TANAP from the Shah Deniz gas field to Turkey’s border with Bulgaria. Nabucco West would then take gas all the way into Central Europe. Hence, Azerbaijan is now emerging as a potential major gas supplier to Eastern European states, whose governments are now eagerly courting Azerbaijan. This also means that Azerbaijan is emerging as Russia’s rival in this market.

Keywords:
South stream, Russia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Nabucco, oil, TANAP
