Gas Market Analysis Department
The Gas Market Analysis Department (GMAD) monitors, analyses and forecasts short-term gas market developments, including, but not limited to, gas prices, supply and demand, trade, transportation and storage, as well as factors of short-term nature that impact gas market fundamentals, including economy, inter-fuel competition, energy policies and regulations, taxation and investment. GMAD is responsible for keeping Member Countries informed on the latest global and regional gas markets developments through regular reports and studies. It also cooperates with the other Secretariat structures to undertake joint activities required to fulfill the objectives of the GECF and/or to support Member Countries, in particular in communication, energy dialogue and multilateral negotiations.
The GMAD Head leads and supervises the team, ensuring effective monitoring, analysis, and the production of periodic reports and specific studies. The Head is also responsible for defining the relevant sources of information for the Department's research work.
