  • Quarterly Gas Review – Issue 2

    By: Thierry Bros

    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 […]

  • Energy Sustainability in the Gulf States – The Why and the How

    By: Laura El-Katiri

    For many decades, the Gulf states’ significant oil reserves have rendered the region among the most important energy suppliers in the world, and there is similar potential for the region’s natural gas reserves. However, the Gulf states’ rapidly rising regional consumption has begun to play a critical role in the region’s future export prospects, including […]

  • The Dolphin Project: The Development of a Gulf Gas Initiative

    By: Justin Dargin

    Qatar is positioning itself to take advantage of the worldwide increase in gas demand. The small nation is strategically placed in the Gulf, at the tip of Saudi Arabia, where it straddles Bahrain and the UAE. Although among the leaders in natural gas production, Qatar arrived relatively late on the natural gas scene, in part, […]

  • Analysing Oil Prices

    By: Bassam Fattouh

    In this presentation, Dr Bassam Fattouh discusses three main approaches for analyzing oil prices: non-structural models, the supply-demand framework, and the informal approach.

  • The Oil Supply Mountain: Is the Summit in Sight?

    By: Philip Barnes

    World oil consumption over the next twenty-five years could be almost as much as the total amount of oil produced in the entire existence of the oil industry. This high demand for what is a finite resource makes it necessary to assess where the continuing need for oil stands in relation to latest views on […]

  • An Econometric Analysis of Exploration & Extraction of Oil on the UK Continental Shelf

    By: M. Hashem Pesaran

    Modelling of oil exploration and extraction is a formidable undertaking and involves important economic, geological, and political considerations.  The modelling task is further complicated by the largely non-quantifiable uncertainties that generally surround the future movements of oil prices and discovery of new oilfields.  As a result there are very few serious econo-metric studies of oil […]
