Europe has been striving to achieve diversification of gas supplies for its growing energy needs. The process has never been a smooth one, largely due to the internal fragmentation, market pressures, and efforts by powerful external actors to affect individual member states of the EU. Recent developments in the global energy sector (LNG, rise/resilience of unconventional production, decline in oil prices, the changing political geography of supply and demand) and geopolitics (Ukraine conflict, Russia’s assertiveness, growing engagement of Iranian energy sector, progress towards the EU’s Energy Union, evolving crises in the Middle East and knock on effects for Europe, etc.) are driving transformation at the sectoral, national, regional, and commercial levels.
