Global LNG Pricing Dynamics and Impact on Europe

  • Thierry BrosEmail author


This chapter argues that five revolutions are currently reshaping the world’s energy balance: three of them on the supply side (US shale gas, US shale oil and worldwide renewable) and two of them on the demand side (efficiency gains—an ongoing revolution—and energy storage—the next revolution). It then provides an insightful discussion of how these revolutions are also impacting global LNG markets, the way LNG is priced and the overall impact on Europe under both economic and geopolitical perspectives.
