Analyzing Gas Deregulation Worldwide 2015

Analyzing Gas Deregulation Worldwide 2015

Regulation of the global natural gas industry has historically been a tumultuous ride, resulting in dramatic changes in the industry over the past 30 or more years. Today, competitive forces are being relied upon more heavily to determine market structure and operation. However, this has not always been the case. Almost all aspects of the natural gas industry were regulated at one point - a situation which led to tremendous difficulties in the industry, including the natural gas shortages experienced in the 1970s.

In the past, a regulatory cap on the gas price has limited investment. By moving to a more sustainable pricing structure, the industry can invest in new natural gas networks with greater confidence. Gas distribution networks supplying homes and businesses are privately owned, not Government-owned assets, and therefore there must be incentive for private industry to invest in and expand the market.

Aruvian's R'search presents a comprehensive research report on the deregulation of the gas industry worldwide in its report – Analyzing Gas Deregulation Worldwide. The report takes a look at the gas industry deregulation in Europe, Asia, Asia Pacific, North America, South America, Africa & even the Caribbean. The report looks at each country in these regions and analyzes the natural gas market, LNG market in each country, deregulation developments, or in some cases privatization of the gas market, and much more.

Statistics, extensive figures and tables add to the comprehensiveness of this report.
