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 […]
The Turkish government is in the process of making significant structural changes in the country’s energy sector in attempts to lessen its dependence on current import and transmission infrastructure capacity which is constrained and cannot meet gas demand in peak periods. It intends to diversify supply sources and gas import types (both pipeline gas and […]
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 […]
This paper addresses the gas supply squeeze that has arisen in Azerbaijan. It covers the increase in demand in the domestic market, and Georgia and Turkey, and the unforeseen decline in the legacy state-operated fields, that have combined to produce the problem. It discusses the extent to which the shortage of supply may continue into […]
There has been a great deal of discussion about the Central Asian and Caspian region’s potential to produce and export gas, and about projects designed to establish new pipeline routes, e.g. to Europe and South Asia. The discovery of the South Yolotan (Galkynysh) field in Turkmenistan, now confirmed as one of the world’s largest, has […]
In February 2012, during a period of extremely cold weather across Russia and large parts of Europe, Gazprom failed to supply all the gas that was requested from it by its non-CIS customers in countries ranging from Poland in the north to Italy and Greece in the south of Europe. This situation led to concerns […]
Recent forecasts for gas supply in Russia produced by Novatek and Gazprom highlight the large amount of gas available to meet demand in the next 10 years and also point to contrasting views about which companies’ production may be preferred in a potentially oversupplied market place. In light of this potential oversupply situation, it is […]
President Putin’s comment that Russia will study the possibility of creating a “gas-OPEC” created a wave of newspaper headlines. Jonathan Stern argues that gas-OPEC is a distraction from much more important issues which have recently emerged in gas trade between Russia and Europe.
This presentation was given by Anouk Honoré at the Energy Risk Management seminar on June 28, 2005 at the Cass Business School in London. It highlights the first results of our on-going research on gas demand in Europe.
