European Gas: Competition for markets

Wednesday, March 13

07:30 am - 08:35 am

There are significant areas of uncertainty for the European gas market in both the short and long-term. The long-awaited LNG push into Europe may be underway, and this would pose challenges for the commercial strategies of Gazprom and other pipeline suppliers. Trends for indigenous production are negative, with Dutch production being curtailed and offshore gas development in Romania delayed. Is there any prospect for unconventional gas to change the picture? In the longer term, existential questions remain regarding the future of gas in a low-carbon Europe. Can gas still have a major role despite EU mandates, or does the industry’s future rest on a gradual shift from methane to hydrogen?
