their fragile independence in 1918. Unfortunately, in 1919 Lord Curzon in London and President Wilson in Washington decided jointly that the security of the Caucasus was not worthy of the costs involved; consequently, the Bolsheviks occupied the Caucasus and Baku Oil fell under Soviet control for the next 70 years.18 It is an interesting fact, which indicates that the Caucasus was a subject of politico-economic calculations and a concern of USA-Europe vs. Russia in the past as it is today.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Baku Oil has got a huge importance and was to be used as the key political weapon in Caucasian foreign policies, since, as Adams underlines, Caspian oil and gas is the only hope for the region’s economic renewal. The Caspian is important because it is one of the world’s major producing areas in which actual oil production remains essentially in the hands of market-oriented international energy companies. Its particular importance to Europe is that the most of the additional Caspian oil and gas output is to move westwards to European and Mediterranean markets, although some oil will move by tankers to the giant US East Coast market. Besides, Adams declares that the South Caspian area suffers from an excess of gas reserves and a dearth of regional commercial markets. Two thirds of the world’s gas reserves are found within the countries that surround the Caspian Sea. But, with an absence of proximal commercial markets there are few underlying incentives for regional gas development. In the South Caspian the recent offshore giant gas discovery by BP at Shah Deniz (6.6 to 20bcmy) has captured the last remaining market gap in Turkey.19

Nevertheless they still used Baku Oil as a political lever with the West, in their attempts to secure their fragile independence. Political expectations were raised but seldom met. In 1919 Lord Curzon in London and President Wilson in Washington decided jointly that the security of the Caucasus was not worthy of the cost involved. The first independent Republics were hastily abandoned to their fate. Lenin, who needed Baku Oil to fuel his own fledgling Russian Revolution, seized the opportunity. The Bolsheviks occupied the Caucasus, and Baku Oil fell under Soviet control for the next 70 years.

[...]

Then with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the three independent democratic Republics of the Caucasus returned for a second time. But this time they were to survive. Once more the peoples of the region were plunged into the depths of catastrophic economic chaos, and ethnic conflicts that had been dormant since 1919 again flared up. Baku Oil was once more to be used as the key political weapon in Caucasian foreign policies.

Unlike for oil, the south Caspian area suffers from an excess of gas reserves and a dearth of regional commercial markets. Two thirds of the world’s gas reserves (100tcm plus) are found within the countries that surround the Caspian Sea.
