Danila Bochkarev Analyzes Gazprom Strategies in Pipeline and Gas Journal

Media Coverage | June 16, 2009

A analysis of Gazprom's strategic engagement with Central Asia by EWI Associate Danila Bochkarev is featured in the June 2009 issue of Pipeline and Gas Journal.

Bochkarev, who initially wrote the piece for EWI's web site, identifies the commercial interests of Gazprom, the Russian energy giant, and lays out the ways in which these interests translated into a regional pricing strategy. "An understanding of Gazprom’s strategic imperatives in Central Asia could have helped to predict the conglomerate’s new pricing strategy towards Ukraine," he writes. "Further, it could have avoided – or at least attenuated – the January 2009 gas crisis between Moscow and Kiev."
