IEA Examines Security of Gas Supply

Tuesday, June 01, 2004
Global gas-fired power generation is fast emerging as a new driver of gas demand, representing 70% of the increase in demand in OECD countries over the period 2000-2030. This tremendous increase is due to the environmental qualities of natural gas, its competitiveness in combined cycle gas turbines (CCGTs).

Its adaptability also makes it attractive for the newly, open power sector. Open gas markets are already delivering a great deal, but government monitoring is vital to ensure secure supplies and adequate investment. These issues are addressed by a new International Energy Agency publication “Security of Gas Supply in Open Markets: LNG and Power at a Turning Point” which will be launched by Claude Mandil, Executive Director of the IEA, and other Agency officials on Tuesday 8 June at two press conferences.
