Report summary

European spot pricing dynamics will be driven by players' optimisation of Russian contract off-take and storage within "contestable demand". We forecast year-on-year demand growth, driven by a return to normal weather, higher exports to Ukraine and lower Dutch production We forecast a tightening LNG market over 2015, with lower European imports. But low contract price levels will prevent spot price upside during winter, and prices will trade at the high end of coal-gas switching levels.
