United Kingdom energy markets outlook 2013 - gas

United Kingdom energy markets outlook 2013 - gas

Report summary

Due to a mix of policy measures, gas into power will be a growth area in the UK’s energy market. In 2011, while the UK NBP prices averaged below oil indexed long term contracts, gas was uncompetitive in the power sector compared to the cost of coal fired generation. Despite significant interest in shale potential, the UK will be a net gas importer over the forecast with imports around 73 bcm by 2030.

The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best.
