Denmark Makes Gas Swap with The Netherlands

Denmark Makes Gas Swap with The Netherlands

DONG Energy reported that its recent Gas Tender 2012 was a complete sell-out. The buyers will receive natural gas in the Danish market, and, in return, will deliver corresponding volumes to DONG Energy on the Dutch gas hub, TTF.

  • Ten lots of 131,400 MWh/year for delivery on the Danish gas hub, GTF, had been put up for sale.
  • DONG Energy will receive corresponding gas volumes on the Dutch TTF gas hub.
  • Seven companies placed bids.
  • A total of 58 bids were placed – all ten lots were sold.

Tim Gustav Weibel is Senior Portfolio Manager in DONG Energy’s division for trading with energy commodities:

”Demand for natural gas in the Danish market has been high, and the outcome matches our expectations. The gas auction has proved to be a good successor to our earlier auction programme, Gas Release, which came to an end last year.”

The programme is based on a so-called ’swap’, ie a transaction in which two counterparties make an identical volume of gas available to each other at two geographically different supply points, in this case in Denmark and the Netherlands.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
