With the ongoing expansion of US LNG exports from projects under construction and a long list of new US projects (yet to receive FID) potentially onstream in the early 2020s – the US could approach and perhaps exceed LNG output levels from Qatar and Australia. With no destination restrictions on US LNG cargoes, they are […]
In this first of a new series of Quarterly Gas Reviews, Thierry Bros provides his insights and analysis on recent regional and global pricing issues while also commenting on relevant questions concerning policy and market-related matters. The report contains two major sections: an analysis of prices and recent events and a “Quarterly Focus” which provides […]
In 2017, a gas crisis emerged in Australia’s East Coast gas market. Gas prices had increased rapidly from mid-2016 as the full effect of the three LNG projects starting operations on Curtis Island worked through the gas market, putting domestic energy users under pressure. In March 2017, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) forecast gas […]
The arrival of the first Russian LNG supplies to the UK coincided with the deterioration of UK-Russia diplomatic relations, triggering debates over the role of Russia in UK hydrocarbon imports. Although Russia is the largest supplier of UK coal imports, coal is being phased out of UK energy consumption. Russia is just one of several […]
After a volatile 12 months for LNG freight rates, James Henderson, Director of the OIES Gas Programme, and Howard Rogers, the Programmes Chairman, discuss Howard’s recent paper ‘The LNG Shipping Forecast’. Their conversation ranges from a review of the recent trends in LNG shipping rates to a debate about Howard’s new model for shipping costs […]
The final decision in the commercial arbitration between Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy, on multiple disputes over their gas supply and transit contracts for 2009-19, was issued late last month. The total claims in the case, which started in 2014 at the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, were reported to be higher than […]
This article, published in Gazprom Export Blue Fuel Magazine, examines the consequences of record Russian exports into the EU. If Gazprom’s market share is too high in the future, could this allow the EU to push its new policy agenda?
In this Oxford Energy Podcast David Ledesma interviews Anouk Honore, Senior Research Fellow at the OIES, about the current challenges taking place in gas supply from the Dutch Groningen gas field. The interview discusses the recent earthquakes in the Groningen area of the Netherlands and their impact on the gas production caps on Dutch gas […]
Norwegian net gas production reached a record high of 122 bcm in 2017, confounding many industry observers who had in 2016 and 2017 been sceptical of the ability of the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) to maintain production at 110-115 bcm. In January 2018, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) made significant upward revisions to its gas […]
Gazprom has confounded many expectations by enjoying two record years of gas sales in Europe in 2016 and 2017. External factors have certainly played a role in its success, with overall European demand rebounding, indigenous production continuing to fall and alternative sources of imports failing to deliver at the expected levels (especially LNG). In addition, […]
The cost of shipping LNG has always been an important element to include in the assessment of new LNG project breakeven economics, or in selecting the optimum destination for a spot cargo of LNG. This Energy Insight was prompted a perception that convenient rules of thumb for LNG transport costs were becoming outdated. Until recently, […]
