a windfall for europe's energy industry for show up the area off the southwest coast is especially contentious the european union says only cypress has the right to drill there but turkey has also staked a claim sending several ships to hunt for gas and the e.u. has responded with sanctions which ankara calls worthless for more on that issue i'm joined by helen my our investment research analyst at the share center in london good to have you with us so 1st of all fill us in what is at stake here what's the economic potential of that particular gas field. well there are of fairly large resources i've been discovered in recent years the largest actually discovered across the world although in terms of size it's still fairly small in comparison to what the russians have and what there is in the middle east but you know for for cyprus and for turkey this is going to be fairly significant amounts
8:35 am
of turkish government estimates that the sales at the upper end could be in the region of 9000000000 but i think the big strategic issue here is for both for the e.u. cyprus and for turkey is you know this is an energy supply that could reduce the dependence on russia so it's really about security to a certain extent as well as the economics and obviously there is a huge dispute about to the actual drilling rights who is allowed to drill there turkey says we go ahead now they face e.u. sanctions is it worth it. well her thing the turkish foreign minister has actually rebuffed a lot of the sanctions and have been not really worth they're not that damaging to them and therefore they will continue to drill in those regions i mean what the turkish is are saying is that they are looking after the interests of the turkish cypriots who feel as if they will get a fair share in any any deal but no funds have been set up they're asking for negotiations with the greek side the greek side or the e.u.
8:36 am
side so you know this is their exclusive right so you know the tensions are going to keep brewing but unfortunately turkey if its current environment is you know is picking fights with the west and unfortunately it in the future it could result in further sanctions so it isn't at all clear who owns which drilling rights to this natural gas or is it not clear. well i think that there are competing issues here competing rights when the turkey has the extended economic zone which goes off to the west of of the cypriot i learned that is disputed the turkish republic of cyprus their economic zone. in capsule is the north south and east of the island. then you have the europeans and cyprus so you know there is no clear definition as to who owns what that's going to be the issue i
8:37 am
think going forward. it's it's a troublesome issue i think for now it does require i think some kind of international arbitration as to who owns what. so will be a difficult one and it will go on for a while you're. there for the share center in london thank you so much for your time and for filling us in on this thank you. how serious do governments take facebook's plans to launch its digital currency libera next year serious enough that finance ministers from 7 leading global economy spend much of wednesday talking about how to rein in the coin. the castle north of paris provided grand surroundings for the big discussion of the day arriving in shanty financial leaders said they were determined to ensure the regulator recrown was prepared for the arrival of facebook's libra. gives even
