NOS Newsan average

After a sharp price hike last summer, gas now costs more than it used to. Partly due to mild winters, liquefied gas imports and power outages, a very serious crisis seems to have been averted for the time being.

Europe soon put into operation terminals, through which liquefied gas could be imported from all over the world. As a result, dependence on Russian gas is now much lower. African countries are keen to supply this LNG.

But is there a future in gas for these countries? And will we be able to stop using gas completely in the long term, now that prices are falling again?

In the podcast, Gilles van den Bokel, an energy expert at The Hague Center for Strategic Studies, talks about major shifts in the global gas market. A lot has changed in the past year. There are new opportunities and new risks, but in the end we will have to do without gas.
