Other drivers are regional market integration, need for some overcapacity, greater liquidity on hubs and increasing number of participating shippers A culture of dialogue built in the regions can help implement collective responses to gas crises. Investment and market integration remain crucial for Security of Supply

9 9XVII Madrid Forum– January 2010 Case study Security of Supply Security of supply: a future role for regional initiatives?
