Thanks

“Energy from the Caspian: A New Great Game for Russia, Central Asia, and the World”
David E. Knuti, Foreign Commercial Service Officer
Location: 4:00 PM, 206 Ingraham, 1155 Observatory Drive
Sponsors: CREECA, Center for World Affairs and the Global Economy, Global Studies, and the Center for International Business Education and Research

About the lecture: The Caspian region is reemerging as major source of world energy, but its resources are difficult to produce and separated from markets by long distances and complex geopolitical obstacles. While small in comparison to the Middle East, Caspian production could provide the world with a crucial increment of resources to meet its relentlessly growing demand. If successfully developed and transported, this production could provide an additional 3.0 million barrels/day (bbl/da) of oil in the next 15 years, which could meet a major share of the world’s projected increased demand of 10 million bbl/da. If this promise is met, the emerging states of Central Asia could have a good chance for stability and a modicum of prosperity. This talk will discuss the challenges of the governments and international companies in developing difficult deposits and moving products thousands of miles to consumers. It will also explore the complex geopolitical issues of transpor
tation through the Black Sea-Turkish corridor, and alternative transit routes and customers to the south and east in Iran, India and China. Russia and the U.S. have special commercial, geopolitical, and energy-security interests in Caspian energy development, which are key factors in the total picture.

About the speaker:
David Knuti has been an observer of Russia, the former Soviet Union and international energy issues for over twenty five years in various professional capacities. He is especially knowledgeable on Russian energy issues and the development of the oil and gas production of the Caspian region. As a CIA analyst, he worked in the 1990s on the emergence of Caspian energy developments from a low priority backwater of Soviet industry to a key resource for U.S. energy security. He was a key analyst of the major production developments in Baku, Azerbaijan and north Caspian Kazakhstan zones as well as the epic diplomatic efforts to advance the Caspian Pipeline Consortium and Baku-Ceyhan oil pipelines from the region. Moving to the Commerce Department in 1996, he supported U.S. diplomatic efforts to positively influence Caspian and Russian energy development as part of U.S. negotiating teams traveling frequently to Turkey and the Caspian region to meet with heads of government and c
ompany executives. His final professional service was in the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service for three-year stints in Moscow and Budapest where he worked with foreign governments to facilitate energy policy reform and U.S. company investments. Since he retiring in 2005, Mr. Knuti has maintained his expertise on these issues and given lectures on the UW campus and in the community. He holds a Master’s degree in Soviet and Eastern European Studies from the University of Kansas and is a graduate of the Defense Language Institute Russian course.
