CEPA Forum 2015 and 2016
Breaking the Chains: Is America on Europe’s New Energy Map?
America has become a significant exporter of both oil and natural gas, just at the time that Europe has largely shed its dependence on Russia, thanks to the vigorous intervention of the European Commission. How are V4 countries in particular building a more resilient energy network in Central Europe? Is the U.S. role now merely as a balancing factor, providing small but symbolically important quantities of LNG—or is it greater? And what role can the U.S. still play in pipeline politics—for example in promoting gas exports from the Caspian region to Europe?
