European gas-infrastructure in light ofthe Commission’s new LNG and storage strategyPublished: 1 of February, 2018

After the European Commission released its strategic vision for EU LNG and Storage in 2016 REKK published a study examining the elasticity of European gas-infrastructure and the effects of storage related regulatory measures (storage obligations and strategic stocks). It tested the effect of the Strategy’s infrastructure priorities on supply security and market integration under scenarios of high and low global LNG supply and gas demand projections. The modelling results justify most of the projects outlined, which together reduce prices in CEE by 0.2-0.3 EUR/MWh, leading to price convergence in Europe.
