Chapter 2: Domestic gas politics

James Henderson and Arild Moe


The domestic gas scene has changed with the rapid rise of independent gas companies, and Chapter 2 examines the reasons for their expansion and their growing competition. The companies’ further growth potential and strategies are evaluated. Recent developments in Russian gas politics and policies are presented showing conflicting visions and the link between organization of the domestic gas sector and exports. The chapter also discusses how the gas industry plays important roles beyond the delivery of energy, and concludes that functions related to political interests could provide obstacles to reform.
