This third OIES Brexit publication looks at the European-wide EU emissions trading system (EU ETS) issues. We argue that the many burdensome patches to be implemented, together with those that are already agreed or discussed, are as nothing compared to the Brexit unknowns if there is no united political will.
This Insight published by the Emirates Diplomatic Academy (EDA) is the outcome of a joint workshop between the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES) and EDA and draws on ideas and data presented by Dr Bassam Fattouh during the workshop. The insight examines how global energy markets are evolving, what this could mean for Gulf […]
Earlier this week, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar, accusing Qatar of supporting extremism. The measures are of unprecedented severity in modern GCC diplomacy with adverse consequences for Qatar, not least for its reputation as a business and international and regional transit hub and as host for […]
This Energy Insight provides an analysis on the maturity and development of European traded gas hubs, including both longer-term established hubs and recently emerging ones, both from a liquidity and price perspective, in order to come to an overall assessment of the policy goal of achieving a Single Energy Market for natural gas in Europe. […]
Howard Rogers, Chairman, Natural Gas Research Programme, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, reveals the relative strengths of different groups of players in today’s LNG market particularly portfolio players vs other players.
In this presentation, Anouk Honoré argues that even if gas demand growth in 2015 and 2016 may not necessarily be signs of recovery, the next 5-10 years will/could be different from the longer term ‘future of gas’ debate in Europe. She analyses the reasons to believe why gas demand could stay high in this timeframe. […]
Angola is one of Africa’s most established petro-states, with initial forays into the country’s oil acreage predating national independence. A failure to diversify the economy significantly away from the now well-established oil industry proved disastrous during the global financial crisis of 2008-9: the plunge in oil prices by nearly two thirds from a high of USD147 forced […]
On April 12 Centrica Storage announced the suspension of injections at the Rough gas storage facility until at least May 2018. Whilst the market had to some extent been pre-warned of the problems the relatively muted response was, nevertheless, surprising. Does this reaction signal a declining role for long range storage or is the market […]
China’s independent refiners account for roughly one third of the country’s downstream, yet for years, these private companies, nicknamed ‘teapots’ for their simple refining configuration, were virtually unknown to global crude markets. The independent refiners processed fuel oil as feedstock and, running at low utilisation rates, their retail market share in China was limited mainly […]
In this presentation, Thierry Bros argues that the Dutch TTF is now the most liquid hub in Europe (in front of the UK NBP). He also analyses the dynamics of the new Groningen cap, US LNG and record Russian flows. The presentation concludes with a focus on the potential impacts of Brexit on policy and […]
This paper forms part of an OIES Gas Programme research theme focusing on the most important national gas markets in Europe (and elsewhere). The rationale behind these papers is that individual markets have specific characteristics and complexities which are essential to understand in order to look at future trends. This paper follows the previous publications […]
East Africa has followed a long road of highs and lows in developing its oil resources. On the back of high global oil prices between 2004 and 2014, a rush of new exploration put the region on the map as a new frontier for African oil. But it did not take long for the momentum […]
