Netherlands gas markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Netherlands gas markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Report summary

Mild weather saw gas demand in the Netherlands decline by 17% in the first part of 2014. High production in 2013 will see reduced output from Groningen over the next few years as a consequence of the ten year production cap. The TTF is increasingly becoming the reference pricing point by many market players throughout Europe. We expect Dutch gas prices to increase over the next few years before a global oversupply leads to a price collapse around 2020, before recovering in the longer term.

    • With production restricted by the government's cap, Groningen output will peak in 2020 before entering permanent decline
    • The Netherlands has a history of land drilling operations and there is a well-established supply chain. However, specialist unconventional gas services, such as hydraulic fracturing, are limited. Land access will be a significant obstacle to large scale drilling because the Netherlands is densely populated. In September 2013, the Dutch government launched a study assessing all potential shale drilling locations in the country. The study is expected to take up to 18 months to complete and no decision on whether shale gas drilling will be allowed to go ahead in the Netherlands will be taken until then. Any development plan will need to be discrete and unobtrusive to the local environment and could face significant local opposition.
