EU 27 gas consumption falls by 1.5 % in 2007

Mar 14, 2008 01:00 AM

The 2007 gas consumption of the 27 European Union (EU) member states was 19,710 PJ (505 bn cm), down 1.5 % from the year before, according to preliminary figures published by gas association Eurogas.
The total number of gas customers connected to the gas network rose by 1 % to reach 110,171,000 customers.

Most of the big gas-using countries saw gas use decrease, except the UK, Spain and Italy, where gas use increased in 2007. Eurogas said the most important factor behind the decrease was the weather, with the start of the year having been mild in 2007, meaning less gas was used for heating.
High energy prices and increased efficiency were also factors.

EU 27 gas production fell by 7 % to 7,739 PJ (198 bn cm) in 2007. The decrease was mainly made up for by increased imports from Norway, which is not an EU member state. The UK saw production fall 9.9 %, Germany 8.3 %, Denmark 11.4 % and Italy 11.5 %.
The EU got 38 % of its 2007 supplies from indigenous production. The main external sources of supply are Russia with 23 %, Norway with 18 % and Algeria 10 %.
