    Pierre Noël: Europe must not block the South Stream pipeline

    16 September 2014.  In responding to the Ukraine security crisis, the European Union should have done whatever it could to insulate the Russia–Europe gas relationship from foreign-policy tension. By opposing South Stream, the pipeline system that would bypass Ukraine as a gas-transit country, it has done the exact opposite. Understandably enough, EU leaders state that they are unwilling to cooperate with Moscow at Kiev’s expense. They appear to have suddenly realised that a bypassed...

    Straits Times: Asia would pay a price if Russia-EU gas trade collapsed

    01 September 2014.  By Pierre Noel, Hassanal Bolkiah Senior Fellow in Economic and Energy Security The crisis in Ukraine is relevant to Asia, both politically and in terms of energy security. Politically, it illustrates the fact that economic interdependence may not prevent states taking decisive action if they feel that core national security interests are at stake in a dispute. In terms of energy security, a collapse of the trade in natural gas between Russia...

    Mark Fitzpatrick: Discussing global nuclear futures in anti-nuclear Austria

    27 August 2014.  The serenity of Tyrol, in a country where nuclear-power generation is unlawful, is a pleasant if incongruous setting to contemplate the dilemmas of the technology. This past weekend I co-led a European Union seminar on ‘Nuclear Futures?’ in connection with the Alpbach Forum in the eponymous alpine town. In answer to the question mark in the seminar title, our group of experts from academia, industry and bureaucracy concluded in the...

    Matthew Cottee: The UK-China 'Landmark Agreement' on Nuclear Energy Cooperation

    24 June 2014.  By Matthew Cottee, Research Analyst, Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Programme Amid the pageantry surrounding the visit of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to the UK, one of the bilateral agreements signed last week went largely unnoticed. The announcement that Chinese companies could own and operate Chinese-designed nuclear power plants in the UK might have been viewed with alarm in nationalist quarters, but the ‘Made in China’ label is no longer pejorative, even when...

    Nicholas Redman: Cutting off the gas supply to Ukraine

    17 June 2014.  By Nicholas Redman, Senior Fellow for Geopolitical Risk and Economic Security If there is a surprise in Gazprom halting gas supplies to Ukraine, it is that it has taken so long to actually happen. Relations between the two governments are fraught in the wake of the annexation of Crimea and the continuing ‘anti-terrorist’ operation that Kiev is conducting in Donetsk and Luhansk. In a situation where there is no goodwill between the...

    Michal Meidan: China’s energy-security debate redux

    31 May 2014.  Resource and maritime security are prominent on the agenda at the IISS Shangri-La Dialogue. The choice of topics is timely in light of recent tensions in the South China Sea, sparked by the deployment of an offshore oil rig by China National Offshore Oil Corporation in waters claimed by both Beijing and Hanoi. Access to energy, especially natural gas, is certainly a factor in Beijing’s position on the South China...
