Un nuevo informe del Belfer Center que promete sobre un tema importante para el próximo curso (y sobre el que celebraremos la edición 2013 del Foro BP de Energía y Sostenibilidad):
A new workshop report from Meghan L. O’Sullivan and Amy Myers Jaffe explores the potential for new quantities of conventional and unconventional natural gas to reach global markets in the years ahead. The report is part of an on-going two-year study on the geopolitical implications of natural gas co-directed by O’Sullivan, who heads the Belfer Center’s Geopolitics of Energy Project, and Myers Jaffe, director of the Energy Forum at Rice University’s James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy.
This report – The Geopolitics of Natural Gas – is based on a May 2012 workshop that brought together experts on major gas producing and consuming countries, economists specializing in gas trade modeling, and industry representatives. The report explores the dynamics of the politics and economics of gas in major world regions, looking at trends and links between regions. It also reports on a scenario planning exercise at the workshop that explored the future of natural gas, looking at the time horizons to 2015, 2020, and 2030. As a result of this exercise, the participants developed four global scenarios that offer critical insights into distinctly different trajectories for the future of gas markets.
