LNG indexation to TTF will extend liquidity growth
LNG indexation to TTF will extend liquidity growth

LONDON (ICIS)--Traded volumes at Europe’s most liquid gas hub the Dutch TTF could climb even further in 2020 as prospective market participants target the hub for gas indexation for LNG contracts. With Atlantic-based LNG supply expected to soar further in 2020 the amount of European LNG offtake will continue to grow. Global LNG supply will average just over 32 million tonnes (mt) per month in 2020, a 7% increase year on year, according to the LNG Edge supply forecast.

Methane, the hot potato in the gas sector
Methane, the hot potato in the gas sector

On Europe's road towards carbon-neutrality, natural gas will play an important role as a relatively low(er)-carbon fossil option. However, to solidify this position some hurdles need to be overcome, most notably methane emissions. This became clear during the European Annual Gas Conference in Paris.

Green Debate Encroaches on Natural Gas Industry Meeting in Paris

The chart shows the European Commission’s long term scenarios on the consumption of gaseous fuels. Each scenario for 2050 shows much lower use of natural gas than the three baseline scenarios a the right. For years, Europe’s top natural gas conferences focused on the boom in deliveries of the cleanest fossil fuel. Now, the gathering is starting to consider the risks piling up from the green movement.

3D Visualization in the Oil & Gas Industry
3D Visualization in the Oil & Gas Industry

Digitalization has been one of the keywords of 2019 in the Oil & Gas sector: Big-Data, Cloud Computing, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) are new terms for an industry well known for being conservative in nature, and most of the digital initiatives taken to date have a limited impact on existing operations. However, it is expected that the potential disruption of digitalization in Oil and Gas will gradually transform the way we work at a scale never seen before. At the forefront of this coming change is 3D visualization & imaging, in all its forms.

Wireless Gas Leak Monitoring and Detection Technology Simplifies Compliance
Wireless Gas Leak Monitoring and Detection Technology Simplifies Compliance

Detection of toxic and combustible gas leaks is increasingly important for human and environmental protection. Operators must comply to company safety standards and government regulations regarding safety and emissions, yet their current gas leak monitoring and detection may not be adequate.  Extending gas detection coverage, including the cost of planning, design and running conduits for power and signal wires, trenching, and other installation details, can total about $10,000 per device.

Reducing Methane Emissions: A Requisite to ensure a Future for Gas
Reducing Methane Emissions: A Requisite to ensure a Future for Gas

Methane is the second most abundant greenhouse gas (GHG) after carbon dioxide (CO2). Compared to CO2, the greenhouse gas effect of methane is significantly stronger in the short term. However, methane has a shorter atmospheric lifespan (8-12 years on average) while CO2 persists in the atmosphere for centuries.

Natural Gas in Europe – Preparing for the Next Challenge
Natural Gas in Europe – Preparing for the Next Challenge

After two decades, the EU now has a liberalised gas market. Trading determines wholesale prices based on supply and demand and gas-to-gas competition. Prices are converging across Europe and have fallen to ten-year lows, as LNG competes with pipeline gas in Europe’s large and liquid market. Storage levels are at record highs as the market has absorbed higher volumes. All this shows that the market is working exactly as one would expect. Policymakers, regulators and the industry can all congratulate themselves.
