  • Long-term competition between gas infrastructure developments in Asia: the restrictive effect on Siberian and Caspian export development

    The paper analyses the probable position of major continental infrastructures for gas trade within Asia in relation to the liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects which are foreseen as advantageous in the future for supplying energy to the Asian markets. Siberia and countries of the Caspian Basin and Central Asia are becoming steadily more reliable as potential export sources of gas supplies in ...

  • Natural gas markets and the creation of an export gas pipeline system in Eastern Russia

    The world natural gas markets are analysed, with a special focus on the countries of Northeast Asia (NEA). The natural gas demands of China, Japan and South Korea, until the year 2020, is projected, considering a possible share of Russian gas. The resource potential of natural gas from the Siberian platform and the Sakhalin shelf is given as a sound basis for fuelling Russia's position in the ...

  • Transport, the strategic issue at stake for the future of natural gas in Europe: avoidance of hidden collusion and implementation of efficient pricing

    Two main conditions must simultaneously be met for the European gas market to become a competitive market: 1) the absence of collusion among the various actors; 2) the setting of a fair and efficient tariff system for the gas pipelines. In order to evaluate the possibility of collusion among European operators, we give in the first part of the paper a picture of the different actors involved in ...

  • Gas infrastructures and the environment in Eurasia in a dynamics-as-usual scenario

    This paper examines the implications of the new dynamics-as-usual IPCC B2 scenario for the viability of international gas transmission lines and the environment in Eurasia. In doing so, it analyses the effects of increasing the number of pipelines, reducing gas extraction costs and stabilising greenhouse gas concentrations. In the B2 scenario, interregional gas transport by pipeline would ...

  • Modelling competition between natural gas pipeline projects to China

    China's natural gas demand is expected to grow rapidly in the coming decades. Therefore the potential of several pipelines from Russia and other CIS countries to China has been investigated. A two-step game-theoretic procedure for the problem formulation is proposed to assess the projects' economic perspectives. In the instantaneous supply game the players determine optimal supply levels to the ...

  • The entry of China to the gas market: constraints and opportunities

    In the next 20 years, China will emerge as a major importer of gas and thus shape the energy exchanges and markets in Asia. But different constraints must be overcome. The increase of natural gas share in the Chinese energy balance will depend on the country's capacity to create a unified gas market in place and instead of the fragmented exchanges. This implies several economic and institutional ...

  • New correlations for water content of sweet and sour natural gases

    The water content of natural gas is very important for gas pipeline operators. This paper developed an improved correlation model which is easy–to–use and with an appropriate accuracy to predict the water content of both the sweet and sour gases. The new correlations are generated from the Wang correlation combined with the Keenan–Keyes model. The temperature correction terms as well as the ...

  • Corporate restructuring of the global energy industry: an overview of events and issues

    Before 1980, outside of the world's few major integrated oil companies, only a handful of energy companies could be considered multinational. In 1999, in addition to the scores of petroleum companies that can be classified as multinational, the scope of many electricity companies and natural gas transmission companies has become increasingly global. Through mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, ...

  • The world gas market in 2030 – development scenarios using the World Gas Model

    We discuss potential developments of the world natural gas industry through 2030. We use the World Gas Model (WGM), a multi-period strategic representation of the global natural gas sector, between 2005 and 2030. We specify a 'base case' and then analyse the sensitivity of the world natural gas system with scenarios, including various supply scenarios (e.g., emergence of large volumes of ...

  • Case study - Pierce County, Washington: home of the first public transit fleet in the country to run on renewable natural gas

    Summary: Li 1986 Pierce Transit was one of the first public transit agencies in the U.S. to trade in its diesel and gasoline-powered buses for buses fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG). 27 years later, this pioneering Agency has just finalized a new contract with the local utility, Puget Sound Energy, to buy an even better fuel: the renewable compressed natural gas (R-CNG). This ...

  • Diversification of Russian gas export routes

    The exportation of energy (i.e., gas) resources plays a vital role in the economic development in Russia. The major market for Russian gas exports is Western Europe, which has caused a considerable amount of concern amongst Russian officials. This paper presents different options for gas export routes for Russia and other CIS countries, taking into account market demand and supply, as well as ...

  • Boosting gas pipelines to optimum levels - Case Study

    As gas pressure drops in the gas pipeline network, the transportation capacity is reduced. Compressor plants are used to boost gas pressure back up to optimum operating levels. Monitoring fuel gas to compressors is typically accomplished with an orifice or turbine meter. Because both of these methods are subject to fouling and failure, they require frequent skilled maintenance in order to ...
