Energy security is an issue of particular significance to ASEAN states as well as other regional states such as India, China, Korea, and Japan. Given the possibility of high oil prices, diminishing oil supplies and increased competition for resources, disputes over territories, and the strategic importance of sea lanes passing through Southeast Asia, there is much scope for competition as well as opportunities for cooperation. The paper discussed two key questions: What is the energy problem in the region and what have its consequences been?
