The natural gas market has never been more in focus, driving the global energy landscape, at the centre of an energy industry challenged to balance security of supply with affordability and sustainability. The European gas crisis has driven unprecedented investment in the continent—but also has global ramifications from both a supply and demand perspective. New supply projects are needed to meet the shortfall in Europe, whilst the fundamentals underpinning demand growth in Asia remain.
Concurrently, the global market continues to evolve with greater transparency and liquidity supporting an ever-more global industry.
Meanwhile, the global movement towards Net Zero continues to play out. Gas is expected to play a significant role, particularly in Asian markets and will interplay with growth technologies and energy vectors such as hydrogen and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
The financing landscape for new gas infrastructure is evolving too, with financial institutions increasingly seeking to have Net Zero compliant investment approaches. Gas has a role to play in energy transition but faces an uncertain financing landscape.
Suppliers, traders, buyers and consumers must adapt to this evolving landscape, and government, regulators and financiers will also need to adjust their approaches. Baringa works with clients across the gas and LNG value chain globally to capture these opportunities and overcome corresponding challenges.
