A geo-economic development analysis in the Balkans under the perspective of the interests of Greece is useful to conceive better the ever-increasing tense framework of globalization's restructuring. Both the study of the different sources of energy (petroleum and, increasingly, natural gas) and the numerous new geopolitical changes demonstrate the existing tensions within the contemporary international strategic relations. The energy security of the Balkans region presents an excellent case to study and realize the contradicted interests in national, regional and supranational level.
