Past and future trends of world and regional gas demand are explained with a focus on the European power sector. The most important pipelines, regasification and liquefaction infrastructures are discussed in detail. Natural gas prices are examined with respect to the oil linkage, the role of speculation, and the impact of taxation. After a discussion of market leaders and clusters, the book ends with some conclusions about gas regulation in Europe and possible reforms.
