The Caspian Sea: neighbours and players

The surge in the exploitation of hydrocarbons in the Caspian region has changed the rules for development and engagement in many sectors, in particular oil, land and sea transport, and services. National interests multiplied after the breakdown of the Soviet Union as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan gained independence. Relationships between these states are being tested as the possibility of large profits emerges. Additionally, with China entering the game as an increasingly strong economic player, the centre of gravity is moving east, demanding that new transport and communication routes are considered across the region.
