“It’s an example of how great–power competition is rapidly reshaping trade networks in a world economy that looks set to fragment into rival blocs.

This would help Europe achieve its ambitious climate goals and rebalance its energy sources away from countries ruled by tyrants such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin. Its newly minted corporate champions could offer Europe’s best, and perhaps last chance to stay globally relevant. And it could alter the continent’s political and economic balance by creating an alternative to the sputtering Franco-German engine.”

“The gas industry threats of shortages in the domestic market will spur further government action. Neither the prime minister’s nor Chris Bowen’s political careers could withstand gas rationing with consequent electricity price spikes in Eastern Australia. The government is being forced into a full gas reservation policy on all fields on the east coast. It simply cannot risk real shortages that the producers are threatening.”
Where to next for Australian gas?
