Gazprom: The Life in an Epoch of Sanctions, the Turn towards the East, Growing Domestic Competition - Research and Markets

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5w7n74/gazprom_the_life) has announced the addition of the "Gazprom: The Life in an Epoch of Sanctions, the Turn towards the East, Growing Domestic Competition" report to their offering.

According to the report, Gazprom has found itself under double pressure. On one side, it is becoming more complicated for Gazprom to deal with the EU that may strongly perceives the Russian company as an instrument of political pressure by Russia.

On the other side, the gas giant is facing pressure on the domestic market by large independent gas producers who are under sanctions and count on expansion of their share on the domestic market as compensation. Besides, the period of low prices of hydrocarbons continues on the world market.

As detailed in the report, the political situation is assisting Gazprom in some way - at least, the question of restructuring is not that acute on the agenda. It appears that Vladimir Putin is not ready to begin serious reforms in such complicated political and economic conditions. Yet, Gazprom still has to solve important tasks, e.g. to quickly reorient towards China, expand the domestic demand and find investments amid its limited access to credit markets.

The report elaborates on the following issues:

  • Development of the domestic natural gas market
  • - A new campaign against Gazprom by independent gas producers, outcomes
  • - Weak consumption on the background of excessive production capacities
  • - Pricing system: problems and prospects
  • - Results of the first year of natural gas trade on the exchange
  • Gazprom on the European market
  • - Demand for Russian natural gas in Europe and Turkey
  • - Antimonopoly investigation by the European Commission, prospects
  • Gas transit difficulties, new gas transportation projects
  • - European triangle: Nord Stream-2, Turkish Stream and Ukraine's GTS
  • - Stability of transit via Ukraine
  • - New winter package: Ukraine is entering a new heating season
  • Gas turn towards Asia
  • - Power of Siberia: transfer to construction stage
  • - Negotiations on expansion of gas supplies to China
  • - LNG in the Far East
  • Finances of Gazprom amid sanctions
  • - The company's investment program
  • - Fiscal appetite of the state
  • Reforms in Gazprom's corporate structure
  • Medium-term forecast of developments
