This course is design to introduce the concept of energy policies across the globe, through comparison of the policies affecting oil, gas, renewable, nuclear etc, with emphasis on natural gas as an alternative energy source for the future, and the basis for developing such policies by government or regulators taking cognisance of economic factors and infrastructure. The structure of such policy to public and private sector within the gas value, chain as well as the industrial and domestic energy consumers. The course identifies the global energy outlook and how it favours the use of natural gas, as well as the potential technologies that drive gas choice in comparison with other energy sources such as oil, coal, nuclear, biofuels. Electricity generation is then discussed as the key factor in gas industry, with examples of the dependency of electricity on the gas market, and how this shaped the gas policy to encourage participation of private companies in both generation, transmission and distribution. The course will then look at the practical examples of the gas policies development and how it changes over time in different countries such as UK, US, Middle East, Africa and Europe. This unique combination of theories and examples of the existing policies could help policy makers, resource personnel, management team and private sector in the industry to understand their role and strategize their investment and interest in the gas policy at international and local level.

The target of this course is to enable participants understand:
• To generate aim, target, and outlook of energy policy in shaping the natural gas value chain
• To compare technology options for natural gas policies globally and locally
• To highlight the relevance of electricity market in the gas policy especially pricing and competition for generation, transmission and distribution
• To identify factors affecting gas policies and structure of the gas chain
• To identify case studies of the gas policies in the UK, US, Middle East, Africa and European markets
