Our Chart of the Month charts the rise of global gas price formation. Not so long ago, there was no such thing as a global gas market. Just three regional markets with little interaction between them. Today, there can be no doubt that has changed, and our Chart of the Month shows the clear link between US, European and Asian gas prices. But what is the logic behind the link and how did it come about?

In short, flexible and plentiful US LNG cargoes, and a trend for coal to gas plant switching in the European power sector. You can find more about the patterns and logic of the link in our Chart of the Month and accompanying analysis.
