The role of SK-HU gas interconnector in the Hungarian gas market and future expectations

REKK Market Monitoring Club

15 of September, 2016

Thus far, the new Slovakian-Hungarian gas pipeline remains underutilized despite expectations of high capacity utilization driven by access to Western hub gas, improvement of security of supply and increased leverage against the dominant gas supplier, Gazprom.
The aim of the Market Monitoring discussion is to evaluate the factors that are contributing to the low usage, be it radical changes in market dynamics or the influence of regulatory measures.

The policy brief summarizes the REKK analysis of the interconnector and the findings of the workshop.
