Brendan A’Hearn is a Central and Eastern European gas market specialist for energy and commodity intelligence service Argus Media.

Brendan took a particular interest in Russia’s use of energy as a geopolitical tool, and the connection between Russian politics and energy. His areas of research included the role of energy in Russo-Chinese relations, Russian climate change policy, and the relationship between gas and Russia’s social contract with its citizens.
Following completion of his MA, Brendan joined Argus as a reporter on the Central and Eastern European region. Brendan particularly focuses on pipeline supply and dependence on Russia in the CEE region, and leads Argus’ coverage of Russian gas supplies to Europe and analysis of Gazprom’s production and sales.
