Fundamental gas market analysis for a gas trading utility in a context of the German energy transition process.

Funding: Gas trade utility

Cooperation: r2b energy consulting GmbH

The project was oriented on provision of insights about future of European natural gas market with the purpose to improve the basis for strategic business decisions. The working packages were focused on the in-depth analysis of market mechanisms and main factors behind the gas prices and trade volumes evolution; on operation of key gas infrastructure elements (e.g. gas transportation networks, LNG liquefaction and regasification terminals, gas storage facilities); as well as on the mid-term gas price forecast.

The project involved development of the large-scale European gas market model and integration of it into business activities. Using the model as a support tool, our project partner can obtain necessary information needed to understand the mid- and long-term market trends and to form robust business decision vectors.
