Will U.S. gas come to Europe? Faculty Member Malcolm Johnson Discusses with Bloomberg Business
Five Questions for Europe's Gloomy Natural Gas Market in 2016
As seen on Bloomberg Business

Will U.S. gas come to Europe?
Europe, with its accessible trading hubs and underused import infrastructure, may lure U.S. LNG, which has no restrictions on destination and would have to compete with pipeline supplies from Russia and Norway.
“Given the volumes of gas shipped to Europe, the marginal cost of additional Russian gas is low and they should be able to compete with U.S. LNG supplies,” said Malcolm Johnson, a Guildford, England-based faculty member of The Oxford Princeton Programme, an energy training provider. “However, it is clear that in certain countries there is a desire to diversify supplies for supply security.”
That desire to diversify away from Russian dependence has motivated countries such as Lithuania to sign supply agreements with U.S. exporters including Cheniere Energy Inc. U.S. LNG will probably be able to compete on European hubs this winter, Bloomberg New Energy Finance said earlier this month.
