European gas markets short-term outlook Q2 2019

Report summary

Coal-to-gas switching levels become the key feature of European gas price setting through 2019 and 2020. With the level of Russian flows into Europe remaining a risk to the outlook. The strategy employed by Russia could look very different between 2019 and 2020 taking account of the new pipeline routes of Nord Stream 2, TurkStream and TAP which will all commission in late-2019. These new routes will reshape European gas flows and the cost of Ukraine transit in 2020 will not become clear until May 2019 at the earliest.
