Athens - 15/09/2010 : Market assessment study of the gas markets of selected South-eastern European countries

Kantor Athens has been hired by a group of major European gas players to undertake an analytical assessment of all relevant market, economic and regulatory factors to identify trading opportunities in each of seven selected gas markets of South-Eastern Europe. The project entails a comprehensive country-by country analysis of the current and historical profile of the relevant countries’ energy sectors, the development of long-term demand forecasts for all major gas-consuming sectors, the assessment of potential supply sources for each country and the resulting supply gap, a review of the market and regulatory framework currently in place, an examination of likely future gas border prices and netback prices in the region, and a comparative analysis of the relative attractiveness of each market.
