Gas pipeline flows and utilisation rates in Europe

As European imports of Russian gas have reached historical highs since 2016, it has become increasingly important to consider the routes by which that gas is delivered, the extent to which those routes are fully utilised, and the related question of how much spare capacity remains in the system, particularly at times of peak flows. This ongoing research maps physical flows onto pipeline system capacities, draws attention to potential bottlenecks, and considers the potential impact of new pipeline infrastructure, such as Nord Stream 2, Turkish Stream 2, and their onshore European components.
