Part of the Euro-Asian Studies book series (EAS)


Local refineries and gas processing facilities play an important role for the Caspian Sea region economies (CSRE), determining what products are available for the domestic market and thereby influencing consumption patterns. The governments of the region are interested in supporting and promoting these industries for a variety of economic and political reasons. Governments must worry about maintaining a cap on domestic energy prices as well as sustaining jobs in the local energy industry.
