Gas Europe Transcript


ICIS is the benchmark provider of a range of market reports for European natural gas pricing, news and analysis.


The ICIS daily European Spot Gas Markets – or ESGM – gives comprehensive coverage of pricing across Europe’s traded gas markets. ESGM provides independent daily closing prices and price indices covering the most liquid, well-traded gas hubs through to currently emerging markets. These prices are sourced directly from the market by our editorial team.


Subscribers include producers, consumers, traders, regulators and system operators, many of whom use the prices as benchmarks within their own business contracts.


ESGM contains authoritative market comment and European-wide news which focuses on short-term gas supply/demand and price drivers.


The fortnightly European Gas Markets – or EGM – contains the ICIS long-term gas contract prices for delivery at key European borders, alongside a snapshot of traded prices at Europe’s hubs. The report takes a more in-depth view of current news, including focus stories and editorial comment.


Other reports include daily one-page summaries of spot gas prices in the UK and continental Europe, combined with a succinct text explanation of price drivers and sitting alongside a monthly pricing and comment review of Europe’s most liquid gas hub, the UK’s NBP.

ICIS launches a new PVB Day-ahead price assessment

ICIS launches a new PVB Day-ahead price assessment

1 October saw the launch of Spain’s new balancing regime. Operating under the name Punto Virtual de Balance (PVB), trade at the hub is underpinned by new requirements that impose stronger penalties for imbalances.

Alongside its existing price assessments, ICIS’s new day-ahead product will track the development of this new market, offering the ability to compare the price of gas for day-ahead delivery with ICIS’s benchmark TTF and day-ahead products, as well as other key European spot assessments.

Whitepaper: The Netherlands’ new Groningen gas production plan

White paper: The Netherlands’ new Groningen gas production plan

Low-calorific natural gas (L-gas) production in the northeastern Dutch province of Groningen has been a key concern for European gas market participants for the best part of two years. Mounting civil unrest around earth tremors associated with Groningen production has forced the government to overhaul its production strategy. 

In this white paper, ICIS examines the detail of the new plan and how the Netherlands and the rest of northwest Europe will cope with reduced production of the unique L-gas that Groningen yields.

Infographic - Britain’s Rough ride: How will the storage shutdown impact gas supply this winter?

Rough is Britain’s largest storage site, accounting for over 70% of total British storage capacity. But this winter, the British gas market will not be able to rely on Rough after Centrica Storage announced the near-full shutdown of the site until March or April 2017.

ICIS looks at how Britain will cope with record low stock levels during the winter months.
