Abstract:
The evolutions regarding the energy cooperation among Greece, Cyprus and Israel have given a new boost towards the implementation of the EU principle of diversification in the field of hydrocarbons supply. The current paper aims to analyze the dynamic of the ‘East Med pipeline supply choice’ and evaluate it in terms of EU energy security. Beyond North Sea, Russia and North Africa, Eastern Mediterranean may represent the ‘fourth energy artery’ of Europe and this the main fact underlining the importance of the evolutions on the occasion of the agreement among the three partners in Tel Aviv in the 20th of March 2019. In addition, it is examined analytically why Turkey cannot become a rational option to be included in the overall planning referring to energy production in the region.
