Assessing Nord Stream 2

Gas provision and energy policy are complex issues that get the world talking. Nord Stream 2 has captured attention and, as for any new project of this scale, the discussions are vivid and opinions varied. These external reflections provide a snapshot of current research and perspectives on Nord Stream 2 and EU energy provision.

July 13, 2016 | A new study on the geopolitical, regulatory and energy security aspects of the project looks into whether the main issues raised around the project are merited. What will be its potential impact on Europe and EU gas market structures? More specifically, what will be its impact on Eastern and South Eastern Europe and on the UK? And how can the findings be interpreted in light of energy security concerns? Prof. Andreas Goldthau disentangles the complex dynamics that shape the discussion around Nord Stream 2 in his new study published by the European Centre for Energy and Resource Security (EUCERS) and King’s Russia Institute at King’s College London.
