Gas Demand Prospects

  • Peter Odell
Part of the Surrey Energy Economics Centre book series (SEECE)


Last year’s conference organized by our hosts at the Surrey Energy Econmics Centre was concerned explicitly and exclusively with natural gas. Thus the task of dealing with ‘Gas Demand Prospects’ at this meeting is made somewhat lighter than in the cases of the papers concerned with the Prospects for other energy sources: what I say should be seen as complementary to the published papers of the 1985 Natural Gas Conference1.
