Securing the Future: Making Gas Interdependence Work
Securing the Future: Making Gas Interdependence Work features a 2007 multiclient study that examined the future of gas security for Europe.
Attracting up to 55 delegates from 20 countries, the study concluded that an interdependent Russian-European gas relationship can be beneficial for both sides provided certain steps are taken to protect those ties.
Securing the Future: Making Gas Interdependence Work features our multiclient study, which grew out of a series of workshops about the future of the Russian-European gas relationship. These workshops, held in 2007, brought together industry, government and related stakeholders to debate the critical issues of interdependency against the backdrop of Western Europe's intentions to liberalize its gas markets.
The study attempted to bring some clarity to the debate over gas security, which is characterized by two opposing views - liberalization and interdependency. One side sees security in increased competition facilitating global gas imports, while the other half envisions security in the form of long-term contracts, particularly with Russia. Participants concluded that the two options are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Exporting Russian gas to Europe continues to promise a cost-effective, reliable, and beneficial business relationship for all parties. However, some liberalization should go forward as strong evidence exists already that new market structures have begun to benefit end users.
