Public lecture on the new market model of the EU’s internal market for natural gas
On Monday, 1 April at 14.15, Professor Kim Talus from the University of Eastern Finland will be giving a public lecture with the title “EU’s Internal Market for Natural Gas: New Challenges” at the University of Tartu, Lossi 36-103.
Kim Talus, Professor in European Law at the University of Eastern Finland and editor-in-chief of the journal Oil, Gas, Energy Law Intelligence, will address the new market model of Europe’s gas sector in his lecture.
EU member states are required to fully liberalise the internal market for natural gas by 2014; hence, Talus will be discussing the following issues in his talk:
- What does this mean in the context of EU law?
- What is the future of natural gas supply contracts and what will happen to tying the price of natural gas to that of oil?
- What are the challenges facing Europe’s natural gas enterprises?
- What are the real disputes with Russian natural gas exporters?
During the meeting, discussion will be led by Dr Andrey Belyy, senior research fellow in international political economy.
The event will be co-financed by the Jean Monnet Programme of the European Commission.
