A multitude of factors, from weather patterns to surging demand in Asia, leave Europe open to potential gas shortages if it places its faith in another high-temperature, low-competition winter, Dr Matthew Chadwick, Lead research analyst at Cornwall Insight, via 'The Independent'.

Dr Matthew Chadwick, lead research analyst at Cornwall Insight, called on people in the EU to sign long-term contracts ahead of time rather than purchasing LNG as needed.

As China’s economic recovery drives up gas demand and worldwide events send prices skyrocketing, Europe can no longer cling to the illusion of on-demand LNG, Dr Matthew Chadwick, Lead research analyst at Cornwall Insight, via 'The Independent'.
