The Gas Summit in Moscow: What Has Been Left Unsaid?

Por • 6 jul, 2013 • Category: Economía

The gas market has changed considerably in recent years, which needs to be analysed and discussed by everyone involved in the market. For this reason, the Second Summit of the heads of state and governments of member countries of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), which took place in Moscow on 1 July 2013, was not only a long-overdue event but also, to some extent, an emergency measure. Equally as important here would be information and analytical work by the GECF, which so far has not indulged the expert community with any independent research related to developing the gas market. Over the last two years, Leonid Bokhanovsky and his team promised to carry out serious analytical work as part of the GECF Secretariat, but practical results are yet to be seen. Up to now, the Forum has not even been able to offer the market any weighty expert opinions. More importantly, companies, analysts and journalists forget about the GECF between summits, and defining what the Forum does at non-Forum times of the year is not an easy task.
