Russian sanctions and their impact on East-West energy flows

Friday 24 October 2014

Energy Breakfasts

Tags : Russia - Energy security

U.S. and EU sanctions against Russia over the crisis in Ukraine have hit Moscow’s energy industry hard by drastically limiting its access to Western technology and bank lending. The sanctions have yet to have an impact on Russian energy flows but they will inevitably speed up the Kremlin’s drive to re-direct oil and gas flows away from the West towards Asia.
The presentation will look at the main winners and losers from Western sanctions, the shift in Russian energy policies, the implication on Europe’s energy security and Beijing’s drive to secure access to energy assets around the world.
