    This paper comprises three parts. The first part presents and substantiates Greece's legal position with regard to the process of unilaterally establishing an EEZ and analyses the basic concepts, the terms and conditions of this process before resorting to the International Court of the Law of the Sea (International Court of Hamburg). The second part presents the various scenarios, based on the Voronoi chartographic method, with regard to the delineation of the Greek-Turkish-Cypriot EEZ, with or without the complex of island Megisti-Strongyli and Ro. Moreover, Greece's losses in methane hydrates are presented in relation to the sumbarine mountains of Anaximenes, Anaxagoras and Anaximander, for both cases. The third part includes our geopolitical conclusions, through an analysis of Turkey's political behaviour, depending on its geo-strategic aims.
