Abstract: In contemporary international security system new elements of security appears on the stage and energy security is this kind of element. The importance of energy security grows along with the growing dependency of states on the energy resources, and also by growing rivalry in international system for control of the resources. Energy resources are becoming part of economy, foreign policy and as well as various security elements. Analyzing states through prism of energy security it is possible to identify the main actors in the filed of energy security, to distinguish levels of their influence, to determine their links and interactions. This allows constructing global energy security system. Article distinguishes three types of states in the field of energy security: producers, consumers and transit states. These types of states interact with each other and this interaction is a core of energy security for individual states and global system. Producers are the most influential group followed by consumers as transit states that are dependent on the relations between producers and consumers. Producers and consumers through changes in energy security can influence regional and global security as changes in global and regional security (also energy security) interacts with each other. Transnational actors and global economical factors could influence global or regional energy security. Geographical distribution of energy resources influences relations between producers, consumers and transit states as well as influences global and regional energy security. Geographical positions and climatic conditions influence energy security of individual states and their interaction.
