Lower gas export prices predicted


Russian gas giant Gazprom sees lower gas prices in the coming year, potentially offering business users a chance to reduce their energy costs.

As we have we have previously explained, oil and gas prices are linked so a lower oil price will also drag down gas prices.

As Jack Farchy reported for the Financial Times, Gazprom’s deputy chief executive Alexander Medvedev said average export prices to non-former Soviet countries are expected to drop by just over 30% from last year’s.

In their financial statements released 29 April, Gazprom said its profits fell by 86% due to foreign exchange expenses (the appreciation of US dollar and Euro against the Ruble) and an unresolved dispute with Ukraine. The profit fall comes soon after the EU charged Gazprom with market abuse.
