The article covers the analysis of the achievements of the US energy security strategy and its impact on President B. Obama’s foreign policy. The author underlines the fact that at the beginning of the XXI century due to the «shale revolution» the US role as a new global energy center has strengthened in the global market of oil and gas resources. The traditional OPEC actors – Saudi Arabia and Russia – act in the world policy as competitors, realizing their own national interests. The strengthening of the USA role in the global energy market may result in some changes of its foreign policy strategy in the Middle East and in the world.

Key words

energy security, the USA, oil and gas resources, national interests, competition
