The Energy Sector, Competition and Security in the Eastern Mediterranean

... running from Ashkelon in Israel to El-Arish in Egypt (about 90 km). Even though Egypt has no particular need for gas imports, it is striving to create a gas hub.

Egypt’s interests have taken this turn since it has had fewer problems developing and selling its own natural gas, while ...

Can LNG ensure European security of supply?

... Asian LNG spot prices reflect similar patterns. Only Henry Hub price (determined by shale revolution, reduced Import, low coal price in the EU and low industrial demand for gas as well as post-Fukushima nuclear dismantlement) remains cheaper, giving the USA additional incentives for export. Today, 53% of the EU (80% in North West EU) gas supplies are traded in gas-for-gas markets that gives reliable price signals thus determining most economic and efficient supply mix. LNG flows (given availability of cargoes not under contract) also respond to these price signal thus becoming more flexible for short-term trading and arbitrage between markets. In other words, surge for LNG will raise its price to attract the cargoes ...

The US government also conceived a number of programs to help finance oil and gas projects in other countries and to provide technical expertise ...

American LNG exports: still a good idea?

... marginally competitive only in Spain and the United Kingdom, who pay a higher gas price to Russia than Eastern or Central European states who are more easily reached by pipeline. As we see, Europe won’t be a big US customer. However, American LNG will be vital for Japan and China as well as Turkey who currently imports 98% of its gas from Iran and Russia at a higher price than would be alternatively offered by the USA.Doesn’t the US need its own gas?Given that American demand for electricity is likely to experience a 50% increase in the next 20 years, it seems rational to presuppose that gas will become the optimal choice for power generation. Also, despite ...
