Energy in all its forms is the lifeblood of modern economies. Without energy there would be no economic development, no conveniences, and no comfort at home. However, the big problem is that some countries have a lot of energy resources, while others have fewer or even none. Therefore, countries with abundant energy resources (or products) must export to countries that need them. This is one of the important functions of global energy markets, where energy sources, products and services are sold, bought, and traded among countries and companies. While this is the primary activity in energy markets, it is only a part of the entire global energy market scheme. The goal of this text is to review and analyze as closely as possible all sides of the energy markets in their physical, technological, economic, political, regulatory, environmental, financial, and legal aspects.
