Unaccounted for Gas (UFG) in Gas Network Utilities – An International Perspective

Unaccounted for Gas (UFG) in Gas Network Utilities – An International Perspective – A report by MJMEnergy for CEDIGAZ – PDF - 155 pages
Member - one license999 €
Non member - one license1999 €

The unaccounted-for gas (UFG) in gas network utilities, particularly methane emissions, is a pressing environmental and financial concern. With methane being a potent greenhouse gas, efforts to reduce emissions have gained momentum, including the Global Methane Pledge signed by 105 countries. The CEDIGAZ report reveals that UFG contributes approximately 70 billion cubic meters of methane release annually, equivalent to 1.75% of global natural gas demand. This represents a significant impact on global warming and financial losses for utilities. The report explores the sources of UFG and presents solutions, emphasizing the need for accurate measurement, active monitoring, and effective regulations. It underscores the potential for methane emissions reduction in areas like gas flaring and venting and highlights cost-effective strategies to address these issues.

Global biomethane market: Green Gas Goes Global

Thematic studies - March 2019 - 140 pages - PDF format
Member - unlimited online access500 €
Non member - 5 licenses2500 €

This report provides a detailed analysis of the booming biomethane market as governments around the world increasingly recognize the many benefits of renewable natural gas.

Since 2010, world biomethane production has increased exponentially, reaching three billion cubic meters in 2017 and there will soon be more than 1,000 biomethane production plants operating in thirty-four countries, up from 720 at year-end 2017.

For many years a European phenomenon, Green Gas is Going Global.

The report contains three parts:

  1. An overview of global biomethane production and markets, biogas upgrading plants, key drivers and future trends (region by region)
  2. Country reviews for forty countries in Europe, North America, Asia, Central & South America and Africa
  3. In-depth case studies on key developed and emerging biomethane markets, e.g. U.S., Canada, Brazil, Germany, France, China and India.

It complements the CEDIGAZ Global Biomethane Database

LNG as a potential transport fuel, especially in shipping and trucking, is attracting considerable interest. This is mainly a reflection of the price advantage of LNG over oil based fuels, especially in the US where the shale gas revolution has driven gas prices to record lows. In the marine sector, the reinforcement of emissions regulations will force ship-owners to move to less polluting fuels or technology and LNG has a number of advantages over other compliance solutions. However, the development of LNG as a transport fuel faces a number of challenges and will have to go hand in hand with the development of fuelling infrastructure.

Gas and Coal Competition in the EU Power Sector

Thematic studies June 2014 213 pages PDF format
Despite its many assets, a confluence of factors – including flat electricity demand, rising use of renewable energy sources, falling wholesale electricity market prices, high gas prices relative to coal and low CO2 prices – has eroded the competitiveness of natural gas in the EU power sector. The share of natural gas in the EU electricity mix has decreased from 23% in 2010 to 20.5% in 2012. By contrast, coal-fired power stations have been operating at high loads, increasing coal demand by the sector. This thorough analysis by CEDIGAZ of gas, coal and CO2 dynamics in the context of rising renewables is indispensable to understand what is at stake in the EU power sector and how it will affect future European gas demand.
