This Future Note* prepared within the scope of the MENARA project aims to provide a brief outlook to the energy relations between Israel and Turkey. Following a six years of rupture in bilateral relations, Turkey and Israel signed a reconciliation agreement on June 2016 in order to normalize relations. Several developments have unfolded at regional level during this period of détente including the escalation of war in Syria, the coup in Egypt, the nuclear deal between Iran and the West and the rise of terrorism at both regional and international level.

On that regard, this note aims to briefly outline the energy dimension in bilateral relations along with current developments in the region relevant to the energy- specific cooperation.
