The European Gas Market Looking for its Golden Age?

The European energy market has to face numerous challenges to achieve a successful transition towards a low carbon economy, to preserve its competitiveness and to ensure its security of supply.

While the EU Communication on the Energy Union published in February 2015 has given new impetus to Europe’s gas policy, the EU gas market has to deal with a new environment both in terms of supply and demand.

The debate will be an opportunity to discuss the future perspectives of the EU gas market. It will specifically address the relations between EU and Russia at a crossroads, the declining production in Groningen in the Netherlands and the global trends on the LNG market, with an emphasis on the US LNG.
