Energy-related issues gained a prominent place within the NATO's new strategic concept declared during the Lisbon Summit (November 20, 2010). The resource nationalism and the energy terror, two underlying security menaces emanating from the New Energy Geopolitics, are believed to have prompted the Allies to device this (Seventh) Strategic Concept. Lisbon Summit to alleviate, if not remove, these security challenges tasked NATO with a set of duties. Turkey is a would-be fourth energy artery of Europe and a melting pot of these two energy related risks, thus, stands for an excellent litmus test for NATO's new energy role. However the Alliance could deliver a formidable contribution to Turkey's energy security under this double-barrelled challenge, the Turkish state's acute reliance on Russian energy wealth seems to greatly diminish the scope of such partnership.
