Energy security has become one of the most important components of the contemporary states’ national security. However, within the literature dealing with energy topics there is no specific definition of the energy security dilemma. The main goal of this paper is to define the energy security dilemma and compare its manifestations and outcomes to the classic security dilemma, using the Eurasian gas market case study. We point to three different manifestations of the energy security dilemma for states, regarding their role in the gas market (whether they are exporting, importing, or transit states). We end with a conclusion that in the long run, the energy security dilemma has the opposite outcome to the classic security dilemma – it encourages cooperation among states, instead of curbing it.
