Thierry Bros

Senior Research Fellow

Dr. Thierry Bros joined the institute in October 2016 as Senior Research Fellow for the Gas Programme.

Prior to that he was, from 2010 to 2016, Senior European Gas and LNG Analyst for Société Générale. He joined Société Générale in 2007 as a Senior Financial Analyst to provide recommendations on listed pan-European gas stocks and in-depth research on gas issues. From 2002 to 2007, Thierry was a Senior Oil & Gas expert at the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry, where he represented France on oil markets and advised on emergency issues at the International Energy Agency, the European Commission and the Energy Charter. His responsibilities included providing global oil and gas industry reviews to senior French officials and negotiating European directives. As a gas specialist, he reviewed the regulations governing the liberalisation of the French gas market and supervised the Contingency Gas Plan. Prior to that, Thierry worked, for eight years at IFPEN, an oil & gas research institute. Thierry Bros holds a Master of chemical engineering from ESPCI ParisTech and a PhD from Ecole Centrale Paris.

Thierry is the author of the book “After the US Shale Gas revolution” (2012). He is a member of the EU-Russia Gas Advisory Council and an advisor for the World Energy Council – Global Gas Centre. He is also a visiting professor at SciencesPo Paris and a senior expert at Energy Delta Institute. Thierry regularly presents his research results at conferences.

                    [post_content] => This comment, dealing with Ireland, is the second in the recently launched research series focusing on Brexit’s impact on gas markets as negotiations continue between the UK and the EU. In it we conclude that the Irish regulator should acknowledge that the TTF is the European index and should use this price signal. The UK gas market would then be surrounded with the same price signal from both East and West. Irish utilities, instead of sourcing gas on the UK hub, would need to sign contracts with Norwegian producers for gas to be delivered in to Ireland at a TTF price (with the UK being used as a transit country), thus solving the security of supply issue for the medium-term.

The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies is launching a new research theme on the impact of Brexit on gas markets. This publication dealing with Security of Supply is the first of a series that will focus on Brexit as negotiations continue between the UK and the EU. We conclude that: 1) the UK needs to reshape its energy diplomacy that has in the last decade increasingly been handled by Brussels; 2) the three EU-UK interconnector regulations are going to be crucial to the way Brexit impacts on gas markets; 3) Brexit negotiations will have an impact on the NBP-TTF spread.

In this short note we examine Naftogaz’s latest tactic, which has been to increase the Ukraine transit tariff in the short-term while promising a more competitive fee once its pipeline system has been amortised. We question whether this is the best way for Ukraine to promote the use of its pipeline infrastructure over the long-term, especially given the increasingly competitive nature of the European gas market. We note that Gazprom has adjusted its own marketing strategy to take account of the changing market environment, and we ask whether it might not be logical for Naftogaz to adopt a more commercial, and less political, stance in its transit negotiations if it really wants to reduce the chance of Nord Stream 2 being built.
