The Eastern European Gas Market Outlook 2010: Country profiles of supply, demand, regulation and infrastructure

Press Release   •   Oct 13, 2010 19:41 IST

European gas demand was volatile through 2009, with some countries seeing slight declines in demand. However, the longer term forecast is continued growth for the Eastern European gas market as new gas-fired power plants come on-stream.

‘The Eastern European Gas Market Outlook 2010’ is a newly updated management report that examines the role of gas within each of the major Eastern European utilities markets and analyses the differences that exist in terms of gas self sufficiency, and future growth of demand. This report provides new and updated analysis of 12 Eastern European gas markets, with detailed data on supply and demand balances. Each country profile features supply and demand overviews, an examination of key governmental, legal and political influences on the sector and an analysis of wholesale trading and the pipeline, LNG and storage infrastructure.

Key features of this report

• Profiles of each country’s gas infrastructure including transit and distribution pipelines and their ownership, storage capacities
• An understanding of Eastern European gas regulation, including local legislation, competitive conditions and market reforms.
• Gas supply data in billion cubic metres as well as production, pipeline imports and exports by country and LNG imports.
• Gas demand data by consumer type divided into residential, non-residential and power generation in billion cubic metres.
• An overview of wholesale gas trading market in each country focussing on the market owners and operators, the active players, liquidity and future prospects.
• Gas demand forecasts for each country to 2020, in addition to market trends detailing gas production and demand by sector.

Key findings of this report

• With minimal indigenous production, Bulgaria is almost entirely dependent on gas imports with all but a small proportion of gas supply coming from Russia under the terms of a long term Take or Pay contract that expires in 2010.
• The key player in the Croatian upstream sector is INA, though a significant role is also played by Italy’s Eni.
• The 3,640kms Czech transmission system is owned and operated by RWE Transgas. The Czech Republic is supplied by, and transits, gas delivered from Russia via the Brotherhood line.
• With no indigenous production, Estonia is entirely dependent on imports. Currently, the only source of supply is Russia, from which gas is sourced via a long term supply contract with Gazprom that was extended in 2003 for at least another 12 years.
• Oil and biomass are the dominant constituents of the Latvian energy mix, together accounting for over 57% of primary energy demand. Despite this, gas has a comparatively high level of penetration, accounting for approximately 30% of the mix.
