After South Stream: Turkish Stream?
In December 2014, Russia announced unexpectedly that it was cancelling its South Stream gas pipeline project. Instead, during a visit to Ankara, Putin unveiled a new pipeline project that would send additional gas to Europe through Turkey to the Greek border, which he dubbed Turkish Stream.
With much speculation as to the winners and losers of this decision, on Monday, February 2, CSIS experts will endeavor to answer the many questions the new project raises. Is South Stream truly scrapped? Is Turkish Stream a more viable pipeline project? Will it lessen or exacerbate Europe’s energy security concerns? What are the broader geopolitical implications for the European Union, Ukraine, Turkey and Russia, as well as the United States?
