EU vs Gazprom: The Substance and Implications of the Antitrust Clash
Professor Andrey Konoplyanik, Adviser to Director General, Gazprom Export LLC; Professor of Markets Regulation, Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas
Professor Alan Riley, Professor of Law, The City Law School, City University London
The EU's investigations into Gazprom's alleged anti-competitive practices are set to wrap up in spring 2014 with an official statement of objections. The allegations that Gazprom has been abusing its dominant market position (it supplies 25 per cent of the EU's gas imports) have heightened the tensions between the EU and Russia. This seminar will delve into the details of the dispute and analyze its implications for the EU's energy market.
The speakers will offer initial remarks for approximately 15 minutes each, followed by an hour for questions and discussion.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
