Europe gas infrastructure

Report summary

Russian firm capacity to Europe is constrained until the start-up of Nord Stream 2. The long-awaited start-up of the 55bcma pipeline will enable Gazprom to deliver an additional 20 bcm of gas into Europe next year. But Gazprom will be subject to further constraints however as the July 2021 decision on OPAL will restrict just over 12 bcma of onward transit capacity available to Gazprom. The European storage picture for 2021 is quite different from 2020, as a record 68 bcm was withdrawn from European storage, drawing stocks to the lowest levels since 2018. And record LNG flows drove up utilisation of Europe's terminals through 2020, while announced FIDs and planned expansions at terminals through the first six months of 2021 reinforces the need for additional regasification infrastructure within Europe. Find out about these and other major developments in our latest European gas infrastructure report.
