France gas markets long-term outlook H1 2015

Report summary

The emergence of a premium between PEG Sud and PEG Nord prompted the French regulator to implement some short term measures ahead of a north-south pipeline expansion planned for 2018. However, since December 2014, the PEG Sud (now PEG TRS, following the merger between PEG Sud and PEG TIGF) premium has disappeared following increased LNG global availability and high imports at Fos Tonkin and Fos-Cavaou, raising doubts on the commercial viability of north-south pipeline expansion.
