European gas after Ukraine – what to look out for

European gas after Ukraine – what to look out for

Report summary

The biggest loser out of the on-going Russia-Ukraine tension will likely be gas advocacy.  While Europe will remain depending upon Russian gas, albeit likely less of it, gas might end up reducing its share in energy demand. The longer term impact on the European gas markets remains to be seen.  Over the following 12 months we expect some decisions that will provide signposts for the future – policy at EU and national level, regulation and corporate decisions.
