Natural gas supplies to Russia’s domestic market are about twice the size of supplies to its export markets. Most of the gas supplied to the domestic market is used for electricity and heat production, which account for about 50 per cent of domestic natural gas consumption – more than 200bcm annually. Natural gas demand in […]
A new round of political activity to promote the Southern Gas Corridor from the Caspian to Europe has begun. In February, European energy ministers and supplier nation officials met in Baku. In June, first gas entered the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) across Turkey, and the first substantial source of supply for the Southern Corridor, the […]
Although the EU has called over the past decade for gas pipeline promoters to ‘respect EU rules’, these rules had either not been established or were not clear. It was not until March 2017 that a legally binding regulatory framework for the development of incremental (new) pipeline capacity was established, in the form of the […]
The growing level of interest displayed in LNG as a marine fuel, driven by both environmental restrictions and economic attractiveness means usage is certain to grow. There is, however, less certainty over the pace and scale of demand growth. This in part is due to the relatively poor data quality on marine fuel usage but […]
The new energy policy of Moon Jae-In’s administration aims to swing radically from coal and nuclear towards renewables and LNG for power generation. During the last 12 months the priority given to the expansion of renewable energy has been overwhelming and the support for the expansion of gas not as strong as many observers had […]
In Issue 2 of the new Quarterly Gas Review series: We show that the biggest reductions in CO2 emissions occur when primary energy consumption is decreased. The change in energy mix towards greener fuels has so far been much less important. One of the main EU 2020 targets was to achieve its CO2 reduction by […]
The DG COMP investigation into Gazprom’s activities in Central and Eastern Europe has been running since 2011 but has recently come to a conclusion. In this Oxford Energy podcast Jonathan Stern and Katja Yafimava discuss the outcome and the implications both for Gazprom’s business in Europe and for the European gas market as a whole. […]
In 2015, Egypt became a net gas importer. This unfortunate, but not unexpected, situation was the result of a decline in Egypt’s indigenous natural gas production combined with a rapidly rising domestic gas demand driven mainly by large energy price subsidies. Major changes are presently taking place on the gas supply side which are significantly […]
In a global gas market, LNG provides diversification and optionality both for producers and consumers. In this presentation, an LNG tightness indicator, designed with the help of Argus Media, is used to aid our understanding of gas markets dynamics, as well as spare capacity calculations published in the first OIES quarterly gas review.
The EU is committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 80-95 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050. So far, the electricity sector has been the main focus of low-carbon policies, but if Europe is to meet its objectives, decarbonisation efforts will need to expand to other sectors, including the heating and cooling sector. […]
Presented by Thierry Bros at FLAME 2018 – With gas markets working, policy makers and regulators should now only focus on preservation of competition for the benefit of customers.
In this latest Oxford Energy podcast Anupama Sen, a Senior Research Fellow at OIES, is in conversation with James Henderson on the subject of recent changes in Indian upstream taxation and the potential impact on the Indian gas market. The Indian government has set out an ambitious target to reduce energy imports by increasing domestic […]
