Nord Stream 2 and Ukraine: Costs Should Decide
There has been much discussion about how Russia – Europe’s biggest gas supplier – can continue to supply gas to Europe over the coming decades in the most secure and cost efficient way. Gazprom and its European partners have decided that building two additional pipelines through the Baltic Sea (Nord Stream 2) is the best commercial solution to secure future gas supplies for the EU, where gas production continues to decline and demand is expected to grow.
Shale Revolution: Myths and Realities
The boom in shale gas production in the US and its wide-ranging influence on markets rocked the gas world. Liquefied gas deliveries were redirected, altering the already fragile balance of demand and supply in traditional markets for pipeline gas in Europe.
Liquefied Natural Gas Outlook: Expectations and Reality
Asia market: potential of Russian oil and gas exports to the East
It has become commonplace to believe that Asia will drive the world consumption of hydrocarbons. So, what are the real opportunities Asian markets provide? Is Russia capable of competing successfully on Asian oil and gas markets? This new report issued by NESF attempts to find answers to these questions.
State regulation of the oil and gas sector in 2016, prospects for 2017
We traditionally conclude the year with our final report that sums up main events and tendencies of the outgoing year. The report analyzes preliminary production results, main state decisions concerning the sector, the struggle for property, changes in export policies, and, certainly, forecasts of the sector development in the medium-term perspective.
Gazprom: Goliath is not going to surrender
The European gas market: the life in the epoch of the Third Energy Package
The new report analyses the condition of the EU gas market, considers regulation practices and new initiatives planned for introduction, reviews infrastructure projects, and assesses prospects of the European gas market in the medium term.
Main regulators of oil and gas battles
Russia's political system has clearly become vibrant. Resignations and new appointments, personnel purging and scandals – these factors have become a new norm of current politics in Russia. Administrative competition in the country is growing, and it has evident outcomes in the oil and gas sector. The number of conflicts is expanding, while the role of state regulators is becoming very significant. Moreover, interests of companies in the sector do not always coincide, which puts regulators into a complicated situation. The National Energy Security Fund is focusing on key sectoral conflicts that relevant ministries and services are engaged in.
Middle East: an earthquake on the world market of hydrocarbons
Developments in the Middle East attract great attention. Many experts believe this region plays a major role in formation of oil prices and the future of the world market of hydrocarbons. The situation in the region is indeed developing very quickly. A conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran has put an end to plans of creating OPEC-2. Saudi Arabia is changing its strategy, while Iran is increasing its presence on the world oil market; the latter also intends to become a serious natural gas exporter being ready to join the South Corridor project and intriguing against Russia. Meanwhile, the war in Syria may intensify at any moment affecting Iran’s production potential and Turkey’s transit possibilities. These events directly influence the supply of hydrocarbons on the market. It means all oil producers are concerned about them, at least because they need to understand the level of oil prices in the future.
Life under sanctions or is there light at the end of the import substitution tunnel
The sector has been under sanctions imposed by the USA, Canada and the EU for almost two years. They restrict access to credit resources and technologies, create problems with marketing and change the psychology of operation of Western companies in Russia making the latter more cautious and careful. Has Russia found a response to this challenge; has it benefited in some way, e.g. accelerated import substitution that Russian officials are so fond of taking about? Answers to these and other questions are found in a new report by the National Energy Security Foundation.
Forgotten shale: development of unconventional natural gas production, potential of North American gas exports
Experts turned their attention to shale oil long ago. The shale gas revolution in the USA is not on the forefront of the agenda. However, this issue remains quite intriguing, given that LNG supplies from the USA will begin soon. Gas deliveries from North America are the result of employment of shale production technologies. This is why it is important right now to understand what is going on in the shale gas industry in the USA and whether North American gas exports threaten positions of the Russian gas in the EU and Asia. Moreover, it is necessary to see if the shale gas revolution can be exported to other parts of the world.
