CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE TREATMENT OF ENERGY IN THE US–EU TRANSATLANTIC TRADE AND INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP

This report was prepared by the GMF (The German Marshall Fund of the United States.)

Here is an excerpt:

“Among the questions that have arisen in TTIP negotiations is how to address trade and investment in energy,
and whether or not there should be a separate chapter on energy. Global energy markets have undergone profound
changes since 2008. The United States, once expected to be a major importer of liquefied natural gas, is now expected to become a major exporter of the fuel. There is a growing debate about whether the country should allow
unrestricted exports of oil as well. At the same time, concerns about the European Union’s dependence on Russia for oil and natural gas have grown since Moscow’s actions in Ukraine.”
