PÖYRY POINT OF VIEW ARTICLE / 7 May 2014

The Ukraine Crisis - could gas supply disruption affect Europe?

As tensions between Russia and Europe have increased over the situation in Ukraine, very real concerns have emerged regarding the security of gas supplies.

New analysis undertaken by Pöyry Management Consulting shows that Europe should be able to cope with a disruption to Russian gas supplies through Ukraine over this coming winter.  
 
As tensions between Russia and Europe have increased over the situation in Ukraine, very real concerns have emerged regarding the security of gas supplies. Whilst there is a longer-term question of whether Europe should consider reducing European dependence on Russian gas, in this Point of View, Pöyry has examined the potential short-term impacts of a curtailment in Russian gas supplies through Ukraine over next winter.  
 
Poyry's new Point of View article, "The Ukraine Crisis - could gas supply disruption affect Europe?", argues that Europe has sufficient storage capacity and deliverability to make up for the loss of supply through Ukraine. John Williams, Senior Principal said "Whilst Europe has sufficient storage capacity to see it through next winter, it is important to stress that there must be sufficient gas in store at the start of the winter. It is also crucial that gas is able to flow freely to the markets that will need it most and that national security of supply is not used as a reason to withhold storage gas from the market".
