Turkey as a Hub in the Southern Energy Corridor
Turkey is not an energy producer, but it sits next door to the world’s greatest proven energy reserves. By location, it dominates access to hydrocarbon fields. It links energy sources to consuming markets. As a geographic bridge connecting Europe to the Middle East and Asia, will suffice to demonstrate that country as the natural key on the Southern Energy Corridor. Market forces strongly favour Turkey as the corner-stone of a Regional Energy Model, proposed in this study.
