This thesis analyzes Turkey’s energy security and its energy cooperation with the European Union and Russia. The thesis argues that Turkey’s energy cooperation with Russia and the European Union’s energy dialogue between Russia contradict with Turkey’s claim to be an exclusive energy corridor between the Caspian Sea region and the European Union. The first part of the thesis deals with the energy security issue in terms of the diversification of energy routes and pipeline politics. In the second part, Turkey’s energy needs and its potential to become an energy corridor will be discussed. Turkey’s energy cooperation with the European Union and Russia will be explored in the following parts of the thesis. Energy cooperation between the European Union and Russia will be analyzed in the fifth chapter. The last chapter is the conclusion.
