The New Geopolitics of Natural Gas

Availability: Ready to download

We are in the midst of an energy revolution, led by the United States. As the world's greatest producer of natural gas moves aggressively to expand its exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG), America stands poised to become an energy superpower--an unanticipated development with far-reaching implications for the international order. Agnia Grigas drills deep into today's ga We are in the midst of an energy revolution, led by the United States. As the world's greatest producer of natural gas moves aggressively to expand its exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG), America stands poised to become an energy superpower--an unanticipated development with far-reaching implications for the international order. Agnia Grigas drills deep into today's gas markets to uncover the forces and trends transforming the geopolitics of gas. The boom in shale gas production in the United States, the growth of global LNG trade, and the buildup of gas transport infrastructure worldwide have so transformed the traditional markets that natural gas appears to be on the verge of becoming a true global commodity. Traditional suppliers like Russia, whose energy-poor neighbors were dependent upon its gas exports and pipelines, are feeling the foundations of the old order shifting beneath their feet. Grigas examines how this new reality is rewriting the conventional rules of intercontinental gas trade and realigning strategic relations among the United States, the European Union, Russia, China, and beyond. In the near term, Moscow's political influence will erode as the Russian gas giant Gazprom loses share in its traditional markets while its efforts to pivot eastward to meet China's voracious energy needs will largely depend on Beijing's terms. In this new geopolitics of gas, the United States will enjoy opportunities but also face challenges in leveraging its newfound energy clout to reshape relations with both European states and rising Asian powers.

    With the current UK-Russia relations hitting a new low in recent weeks, I thought this book was quite topical and I have to say I found it rather illuminating and surprisingly easy and enjoyable a read. It's obviously aimed at people like myself, who have only a rudimentary understanding of the gas industry, and the use of energy/gas in power-plays between states. The book is very well structured, and starts with an introduction into the various forms of gas extraction, and the market for them. With the current UK-Russia relations hitting a new low in recent weeks, I thought this book was quite topical and I have to say I found it rather illuminating and surprisingly easy and enjoyable a read. It's obviously aimed at people like myself, who have only a rudimentary understanding of the gas industry, and the use of energy/gas in power-plays between states. The book is very well structured, and starts with an introduction into the various forms of gas extraction, and the market for them. It then uses the USA as a detailed example of where future power in the gas market will most likely lie, covering the USA's shale gas industry and the ever increasing export/import of Liquified Natural Gas. Following this we move into the complex world of energy geopolitics and the role natural gas plays. The author divides the world of (gas) geopolitics into different categories, using examples for each: Supply (Russia), Dependence (Europe), Transit (Ukraine + Belarus), Small/isolated Supply (Caucasus + Central Asia) and Demand (China, and Asia) before concluding. Overall an informative read for the layman.
