EUTIP WP 01/2019 – The Impact of the Post Lisbon Energy Policy on EU Natural Gas Supplying Countries by Andrea Rocco

In the first paper of the EUTIP Working Paper series, Andrea Rocco (University of Birmingham) analyses the effects of the post Lisbon approach and of the recent EU energy regulatory measures on the EU-Russia natural gas relationship. Moreover, it provides insights on the possible impact of the EU energy policy on the other EU natural gas suppliers. He argues that, notwithstanding the measures adopted could effectively boost EU independence and facilitate negotiations on equal footing with extra-EU suppliers, the future of the EU-Russia relationship will still be driven by bilateral interests of economic and political nature.
