The Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) is a European Commission initiative aimed at facilitating the diversification of the routes and sources of gas imported into Europe. This paper is devoted to the analysis of Turkey’s role in this initiative. Following a summary of the current economic and energy situation in Turkey, the paper presents recent developments in the SGC and an analysis of Turkey’s role in the EU’s SGC vision. It concludes that although the newly-built infrastructure within the SGC framework will probably serve Azerbaijani and Turkish interests first in their future relations with the EU, rather than the other way round, as had been initially hoped by the EU, it still addresses the EU’s basic strategic interests, namely, the diversification of gas supply routes and suppliers.

Paper produced within the framework of the IAI-Edison project « The changing regional role of Turkey and cooperation with the EU in the neighbourhood », February 2014.
