Ukraine’s Energy Future Lies in Good Governance, Not in Diversification

... have remained the same before and after February 2014. In fact, virtually all of proposed diversification solutions – both under the Yanukovich and Poroshenko presidencies – have one element in common: an obsessive fixation on diversifying energy imports and shifting away from natural gas from Gazprom.

European Energy Woes

... it was set to launch in spring of 2013), we would see an even clearer price differential between FST which underpins Gazprom and the legally freer Rosneft and Novatek. We are currently seeing internal scuffles between Minenergo (Russian Ministry of Energy), Mineconom (Ministry of Economic Development of the RF), Gazprom and others, on how to proceed, but as of yet no clear vision exists and we are yet to begin discussing this topic seriously. US Shale Gas Export - The Psychological Revolution: US shale gas export is highly contentious: Sabine Pass LNG was granted non-FTA (Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries) export status, then it was actually frozen, but not withdrawn.

Wild World – Dr. Adrian Pabst Interview

... system. More specifically, Moscow lacks a clear strategic direction, as the ruling regime is increasingly divided between an official commitment to economic modernisation, on the one hand, and authoritarian consolidation, on the other hand. Energy Calamity It is argued by some that the Russo-European relationship has soured creating an anti-Russian stance. Has this occurred due to European attempts to lower gas import prices, or more serious underlining issues?

In February 2013, ITAR-TASS reported that Gazprom has started to consider bringing forward the 2016 aim – so has the Russian energy elite realised the need to hurry? Mareš and Laryš would caution, as the dynamic diversification into Asia is somewhat abandoning the traditionally lucrative European market, than actually providing additional customers.

... for Russia: As Tatyana Mitrova, Head of World Energy Markets Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Head of Global Energy at Skolkovo, sees, there are three interlinked challenges for Russia. As mentioned, Russia must tackle its investment climate from its own side to allow for dynamic logistics, with transparency being vital. For instance Gazprom says it exported 150 billion cubic meters of gas, but only 107 billion was in fact pumped. Further, price disparity must be addressed with an informative business model.
