By the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, there was talk of a
new order, characterized by the interconnectedness of cultural, economic and
political and economic globalization led to the development of capitalism itself
facing problems. It opens up new opportunities such an approach to geo-economic
areas. This approach would show the importance of the economy in the
globalization process. But given the geo- political and economic security after the
Cold War conditions and the reduction of ideological and military rivalry, economic
competition, and seeking news of economic importance in terms of globalization,
the industrial powers (such as America, China, the European Union) at geoeconomic
uncovered areas of the Middle East's rich oil and gas resources. The most
important of these areas and the absence of much importance in the energy, oil and
gas in the coming decades was brought up. This research seeks to answer the
question that economic globalization, the Middle East geo-economic lowered or
not? Through the tangled economy, the creation of geo-economic areas, as well as
industrial power need to put oil in the Middle East and its importance has declined.
