GB electricity at 6:00pm: gas 56.9%, nuclear 20.2%, imports 5.7%, biomass 5.3%, solar 3.2%, wind 3.0%, storage 2.1%, coal 1.9%, hydro 1.4%, other 0.4%, national demand 35.6 GW ....................................... and there are some that believe we can do away with gas and just have renewable energy? The above would suggest absolutely not if we want the lights to stay on!!
TTF, NCG spot natural gas prices move up on lower Norwegian supplies
London (Platts)--30 May 2018 857 am EDT/1257 GMT
The TTF and NCG spot natural gas prices rose Wednesday on lower Norwegian supplies into Emden/Dornum receiving hub, while a high JKM price supported the prompt TTF.
"It looks like the flow from Norway is not back yet," a trader said.
The unplanned work at the Kollsnes Norwegian gas processing plant was extended Wednesday, with a recorded within-day impact of 5 million cu m/d, Norwegian gas operator Gassco said.
Injection rates remained "good," according to traders, though the question is whether they will remain steady until the end of September and where the gas for injection will come from. With a flurry of summer maintenance, affecting the interconnector as well as the Nord Stream pipeline, European gas supply will be tight, traders said.

UPDATE 2-Norway's 2018 gas output to match or just lag 2017 record - Gassco..........
OSLO, May 30 (Reuters) - Norway’s gas production in 2018 is expected to match or just lag last year’s record, the chief executive of pipeline system operator Gassco told Reuters on Wednesday.
Norway last year produced 124.2 billion standard cubic metres of gas, of which 117.4 billion was exported via pipelines to Europe and 5.6 billion was shipped as liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Thought I'd get involved with my contribution........ how do I Iive without Infa, I want to know, how do I breathe without Infa, if you ever go, how do I ever.....ever survive? How do I, how do I, oh how do I infa!! Lol
I�m ready, please forgive me, but everything I do I do it for you, when you�re gone,I�ll be on cloud number nine, so don�t give up. Summer of 6.9 not far away for INFA, can�t stop this thing we started.
UK GAS-Prompt prices rise as low wind power output boosts gas demand
Reuters - UK Focus
Reuters - UK Focus30 May 2018
May 30 (Reuters) - Prompt British wholesale gas prices rose on Wednesday morning as lower output from the country's wind farms led to higher demand for gas from power stations.
* Gas system undersupplied by 7.4 million cubic metres (mcm), with demand forecast at 172.6 mcm and flows at 165.2 mcm/day, the data showed
* "Stronger gas-for-power demand forecast for today - up 10 mcm from yesterday - and small adjustments in UKCS (UK Continental Shelf) production are among the reasons for the undersupply," analysts at Thomson Reuters (Dusseldorf: TOC.DU - news) said in a daily research note.
* Gas-fired power plants provided 57 percent of Britain's electricity on Wednesday.
June #nbp #gas prices rose 4% yesterday in anticipation of tighter supplies, and further gains today have pushed the contract to new highs at over 58p/th, ahead of expiry tomorrow.
#UKCS field work at #LagganTormore and a terminal shutdown at St Fergus #NSMP is set to cut #ukgas production for the next three weeks, supporting June #gas prices.
Further maintenance at Bacton SEAL and Barrow is set to start on Friday, with @IUK_Ltd also shutting down for two weeks in June.
European #gas #storage stocks have doubled since the start of the summer season, with nearly 200TWh of gas added, bringing levels in line with previous years. Over 4TWh of gas still needs to be injected every day until the end of the summer to match last winter’s levels.

Europe waits on Germany
Despite being a leader in renewables, the country can't kick its coal habit
Ireland has just become the 11th European country to pledge the phase-out of coal-fired power, boosting prospects for increased use of natural gas to complement renewables. The pressure is on Germany, which consumes more coal than these 11 countries combined, to do something similar—but the wait for concrete moves from Berlin goes on. Admissions of failure don't come much bigger than the acknowledgement by Germany's incoming "grand coalition" government that the nation's 2020 carbon emissions target will not be met.

Scottish energy company SSE plc will invest £350 million in technology for its new combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in a North Lincolnshire village.
The energy provider recently announced plans for capital and investment of £6 billion across the UK and Ireland over the next five years, which includes £350million for a new CCGT power station in Keadby.
MPs to ask energy policymakers what’s Plan B if CCS fails
MAY 29, 2018 BY BRENDAN COYNE LEAVE A COMMENT
MPs on the Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy Committee have launched an inquiry into carbon capture and storage (CCS), or as it is now called, carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS).
CCS/CCUS involves capturing emissions and either burying them in old gas fields or salt caverns, or using some of the carbon in industrial products. The technology is seen as essential in meeting 2050 decarbonisation targets.
However, there are very few working large scale plants in the world and whether carbon can be stored forever without leaking is unknown.
Energy minister Claire Perry is supportive of CCS/CCUS, describing them as “vital technologies” to decarbonise heat and industry. Meanwhile, gas network operators planning to switch from methane to hydrogen place CCS at the heart of their plans.
However, the government has concerns around cost of CCS. In 2015 George Osborne scrapped the £1bn CCS competition as part of Budget cost cutting.
The current administration has put around £100m on the table. Companies aiming to develop CCS in the UK have called for subsidies or for government “to take on the key risks for CCUS chain failure … as these cannot be borne by the private sector”.
The Beis Committee aims “to test the Government’s ambitions in this area and to examine what policy levers need to be pulled to make large-scale CCUS a reality in the future”, according to Committee chair Rachel Reeves.
“Clearer policy signals are needed if we are to create a market and commercialise this technology into the 2030s. If the Government judge the costs are such that CCUS is not a viable option then they must spell out an alternative if the UK is to meet its carbon emission reduction targets,” Reeves added.

UK GAS-Prices rise on anticipated outage, scant Norwegian supplies
May 29 (Reuters) - British wholesale gas prices for day-ahead delivery rose on Tuesday in anticipation of a planned outage at a gas terminal, just as forecasts for gas for power consumption rose.
* Day-ahead contract was up 1.55 pence to 56.75 pence per therm (p/therm) at 0740 GMT.
* Within-day contract was yet to trade.
* Flows from the St Fergus gas terminal in Scotland began to fall on Tuesday before a full shutdown starting on Friday and lasting until June 22.
* The Bacton Seal gas terminal, a hub on the east coast of England, is also due for a shutdown on June 1-3.
* Supplies from Norway along the Langeled pipeline were lower at 25 million cubic metres (mcm) compared with 32 mcm on Friday as gas was diverted to the continent.
* Flows along the other main pipeline from Norway, Vesterled, remained at zero after maintenance work, although are expected to ramp up.
