Book Description

Maximilian Kuhn investigates one of the most pressing, yet neglected subjects in the field of global energy politics: the integration of the Iranian gas market. Possessing the worlds second-largest proven natural gas reserves, Iran is a hypothetical energy giant-in-waiting. Yet over three decades of internal divisions, coupled with crippling international sanctions, have left Iran unable to capitalize on its vast energy potential. Increasing global demand for natural gas and a government in constant need of finding new sources of revenue to meet the needs of a fast-growing population should lead Iran to eventually become a large-scale gas exporter. How this could take place and what the implications for global gas markets would be are the central research questions tackled by this study. The study allows a look beyond international politics, Iranian political decision-making, investment laws, and pipeline games. Contents Evolution of the global natural gas market Irans political system, institutions, and power structure Irans energy policy and energy decision making Irans contractual and legal framework for foreign investments International relations Target Groups Lecturers, students and practitioners of political science, economics, law with a focus on energy Executives and consultants from the energy sector, as well as public authorities.
