The security of oil and gas in transit through the Black Sea region is vital to the global economy. This paper explores the close links between energy and geopolitics in the Black Sea region and discusses the implications of the convergence of major oil and gas supply routes from Russia and Central Asia to Europe through the Black Sea corridor. The paper concludes by outlining the prospects for developing a mature energy partnership between Europe as the world's biggest gas consumer and Russia as the world's biggest gas producer.
