[li]Global gas demand still exceeds current supply capacity.[/li]
[li]China has a higher gas dependency than ever before due to is gradual switch from coal.  With rolling power outages across China their energy procurement authorities have allegedly been instructed to ensure reserves (primarily LNG from the Gulf) whatever the cost.  Their current plight has also been exacerbated by the early onset of significant levels of snow (averaging 20 inches) and a fall in temperatures of 14 degrees in the North East of the country.[/li]
[li]Russia has Nordstream2 (a second Baltic pipeline between Russian and Germany) completed and commissioned however little else has changed:
[ul]
[li]Russia is looking to divert gas supplies to Nordstream2 and reduce those supplied via Ukraine and Poland in future years to avoid their transit commissions.[/li]
[li]The EU is under pressure from the Ukraine, Poland and the US who claim that the future diversion of gas transit will weaken the economies (and security) of Ukraine and Poland and have stalled the approval of supplies via Nordstream2.[/li]
[li]Following the German elections the Green Party who hold vital coalition seats in the new Parliament have declared that the pipeline should not be opened due to environmental concerns[/li]
[li]Poland may also be raising objections with the EU as increased gas imports would significantly damage their substantial coal industry which is already under pressure from the green lobby.[/li]
[/ul]
[/li]
[li]As the UK has only 8 days of gas storage the excess receipts from Norway, LNG and remaining UK gas fields are being passed through to the EU gas network via the Belgian pipeline.  EU gas reserves remain at around 77% full.[/li]
[/ul]
 
Some of this made me laugh out loud. It's where all the crap from COP26 meets reality and realpolitik.


I asked my Energy guy what we should be doing, he replied "drilling all of the gas out off Shetland and fracking to fuck".

Did he make a suggestion as to who picks up the  externality costs of said fracking ? All the poison left behind in the ground and water table ?
