Quality conversion soars in 2015 after Groningen gas production cuts - interactive map and analysis

Heavy restrictions on low-calorific natural gas production from Groningen in the Netherlands – Europe’s biggest gas field – boosted high-calorific natural gas demand in 2015. This is because high-calorific gas can be converted to the low-calorific grid when it is blended with nitrogen in a process known as quality conversion.

Explore our ICIS interactive map; this shows how high-calorific natural gas imports and exports in the Netherlands have changed this year and the rising utilisation of quality conversion capacity.
