  • More extreme weather is expected around Europe, which is likely to keep price elevated.
  • The United States and the European Union have agreed in principle in bringing U.S. LNG to Europe.
  • China surpassed Japan as the biggest natural gas importer.
  • Russia says that the biggest pipeline project reaching China is almost over.
  • Japan’s nuclear power generation is reviving again, which would curtail the LNG demand.
  • Price in Europe declining sharply after breaking into record highs and currently trading at 65 pence therm. Russia and the United States are set to fight for market share in Asia and in Europe. US preparing to become major natural gas exporter to the EU and Asia.

  • U.S. production is rising fast. Currently, U.S. is the third biggest exporter of natural gas.
  • U.S. exit from Iran nuclear agreement complicates the future of vast natural gas reserves in Iran. Recently, French energy giant ‘Total’ exit lucrative Iran gas project amid sanctions.  
  • NATO sanctions on Russia might disrupt its gas supplies to Europe.
