Quarterly Report on European Gas Markets (volume 10)

After seven quarters of consecutive growth, in the fourth quarter of 2017 EU gas consumption decreased by 2% year-on-year, as relatively mild weather reduced demand for space heating. In 2017 as a whole, consumption was 491 bcm, 6% more than in 2016 and the highest level since 2010.

The European Commission publishes regular market analysis reports on European gas markets and energy prices and costs in Europe. The quarterly reports analyse the main factors behind price and volume evolutions on the market and they analyse gas and electricity market interactions between countries.
