Gas Fired Power Generation Market Trends and Analysis adds "The Future of Gas Fired Power Generation" report to its research store.


Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2015 -- Gas fired power generation has become a key technology for producing electricity, particularly within developed countries where it forms part of an emission reduction strategy. The technology, normally based on combined cycle power plants, is cheap to install and the facilities are efficient generators of electricity but their economics are sensitive to the cost of gas. In addition, markets for natural gas are fragmented. There is no overall global market as exists for oil. This means that prices can vary significantly from region to region. Global gas reserves have risen over the past 20 years as prospecting has improved knowledge of the natural gas available beneath the ground and discoveries of new fields have been made.

The ability to extract shale gas has also increased the extractable reserve significantly. However extracting shale gas is costly and the downturn in the price of oil has hit many US shale gas producers. While gas reserves are widely distributed the distribution is not even with a small number of countries holding a large share of global deposits. Production and consumption of natural gas vary from region to region with large levels of consumption in North America and in some of the large gas producing nations, particularly those where the cost of gas is subsidized.

Key findings of this report

- The largest regional production is found in Europe and Eurasia with 1,032.9 bn m3 pumped during the year

- It is estimated that 60% of Europe's combined cycle capacity, 110GW, was not recovering its fixed costs.

- Elsewhere in the world gas prices are still high because US gas is not available and shale resources have yet to be developed in any quantity.

- When CCS is added to a combined cycle plant it increases the cost significantly.

- The cost of a gas turbine combined cycle plant in 2014 was between $1,006/kW and $1,318/kW.
