ONLINE: International Natural Gas Business - Prices: Developments, Drivers and Forecasts - "The Day after Tomorrow" (PBM34)


    In phases of transition and disruption the understanding of markets is indispensable - even more, as energy markets are increasingly interdependent. The diversity of current developments and political interests requires foresight and attention, but may offer tremendous opportunities.
    Not only the current COVID-19 crisis (and its consequences), but also the fight for influence in the oil market, national energy transition policies, new investments in European infrastructure, uncertainties in nuclear and coal utilisation - to name just a few - have an impact on natural gas prices and their volatility.
    During this webinar, you will look at and discuss the drivers and the potential future development of natural gas prices.
