In this issue:

Mexico Liberalises the Gas Market

Mexico has begun publishing a price index based on done deals for gas, allowing shafts of light into the otherwise murky market and giving buyers and sellers some guidance as pipeline and LNG imports rise.


Bangladesh signs up spot, term LNG

Bangladesh is taking a two-pronged approach to its gas shortage: long-term contracts and spot trading, with a number of alternative delivery points and price formulae.

China’s independents eye LNG capacity

Changes to China’s energy policy, growing demand for gas and the continued downward trajectory of global LNG prices are giving China’s independent LNG players a fighting chance.


Mitsubishi aims to expand LNG footprint

The head of the company's LNG subsidiary talks NGW through its present and planned LNG capacity and its rationale for further development, at a time when the world is generally looking oversupplied with it. 


The West, Russia and gas: NGW Interview

Tatiana Mitrova, energy head at the Skolkovo business school in Moscow, talks to NGW about Russia’s gas industry; and the problems and opportunities that political and social changes pose. 


Putin Divides to Rule

Rosneft is provoking Gazprom, with demands for export pipeline access for its gas production. So far, Vladimir Putin has not stepped in but the struggle helps to remind Russians who is in control.


Opening up Sardinia to a World of Gas

Sardinia is opening up to natural gas. But forget any past notions of a new pipeline from Algeria, or even one from mainland Italy: quick and easy LNG is the way ahead.


Lower Gas Prices Vital for Survival

Gas producers need to be careful not to exploit their customers or they will exhaust their patience, forcing them to turn to other suppliers and, ultimately, other sources of energy.


Iran needs $500mn to cut flaring

Iran remains high on the list of flaring countries but it is taking steps to reduce gas wasteage with the help of foreign expertise. Meanwhile its offshore gas in the Caspian still remains long way off.
