Gasconsumption W. Europe up 10% in 1996

Feb 12, 1997 01:00 AM

Natural gas consumption in western Europe jumped 10 % in 1996, the fastest growth rate in recent years, Eurogas said.The main reasons for the higher demand were cold weather, an increase in customers in private households and a strong rise in gas consumption for power generation.
Eurogas, the European Union of the Natural Gas Industry, said Denmark and Spain, had fast-growing consumption also last year, with growth of 18 and 15 % respectively. They were joined this year by the United Kingdom, which registered a 16 % increase in gas demand due to an increase in gas-fired power generation and low gas prices. Gas consumption rose by 12 % in Germany and 11 % in Belgium. Other west European countries registered increased rates of 7-10 %. Only Italy and Ireland experienced moderate gas demand increases of 2 %. Indigenous production accounted for more than 70 % of total supplies. Nineteen % was imported from Russia, 10 % from Algeria and less than 1 % from other sources such as North Africa and the Middle East. The Netherlands and UK remained the largest gas producers in western Europe.
