“Ukraine expects to start construction work on four new nuclear power reactors this summer or autumn, Energy Minister German Galushchenko told Reuters on Thursday, as the country seeks to compensate for lost energy capacity due to the war with Russia. Two of the units – which include reactors and related equipment – will be based on Russian-made equipment that Ukraine wants to import from Bulgaria, while the other two will use Western technology from power equipment maker Westinghouse.”

“Attacks by Yemen’s radical Houthi group on Red Sea shipping have catapulted Yemen from sideshow to center stage of global geopolitics. The US-led military response has poured fuel on an already combustible security situation around the Bab al-Mandeb trade artery. The re-designation of the Houthis as a terrorist entity risks further escalation, with potential impacts on Yemen’s peace process, oil trade security — and the wider region and Washington’s place in it.”

“The Biden administration on Friday halted the approval of new licenses to export US liquefied natural gas while it scrutinizes how the shipments affect climate change, the economy and national security — a moratorium likely to disrupt plans for billions of dollars in projects. The Energy Department study will build on an existing analysis that underpins the agency’s review of proposals to send more natural gas to European, Asian and other countries that are not US free-trade partners. New exports are now vetted on a case-by-case basis to see whether they are in the public interest — a threshold established by federal law — but government assumptions used in those reviews haven’t been updated since 2018.”

“As one of the key maritime security providers, NATO has a major role in critical maritime infrastructure protection. The Nord Stream pipeline attacks of 2022 brought the need of infrastructure protection at sea into the public security debate. Yet, NATO representatives had alerted to such vulnerabilities well ahead this incident. With warnings by senior military leaders about the lack of security of underwater data cables and foreign naval activities close to infrastructure locations, the alliance was well aware about security risks since at least 2015.”

“The energy market integration in the Middle East is assessed by comparing the acting institutions in the Levant and Persian Gulf sub-regions. Pami Aalto’s regional institution’s theoretical framework and the case-oriented comparative research method are adopted for this purpose. Changes in the Levant region coincided with the Arab League’s establishment. This league did not develop due to inappropriate bi-lateral energy relationships and a lack of effort among the inter-state trade institutions. Regional institutions, lacking order creation, next to the Arab League members’ sovereignty disturb gas transmission, transit, and environmental protection regulations. The Arab League has recognized Israel as an energy-producing member and has reduced the political conflicts’ intensity to improve Arabic leadership in the Levant integration. The Persian Gulf states’ unilateral trade negotiations, sanctions imposed by the US and EU on Iran’s energy sector, and political disputes between Iran and some Arab states prevent coherent regional integration, liberalization, and the launch of joint energy projects. In bi-lateral energy diplomacy competition between the regional great energy powers, Iran and Saudi Arabia outside the region is evident. Though the environmental stewardship institution supports green energy, the profit-interest has priority in these regions. The outcome of this article reveals the existence of constraints imposed on energy market integration in these sub-regions.”
