Shale Gas – Hype and Practicality


Howard is the Director of the Natural Gas Research Programme at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.


In 2010 he published a research paper on LNG arbitrage between the regional markets of Asia, Europe and North America.


In 2011 Howard co-authored a paper on the transition to hub-based pricing in Continental Europe with Professor Jonathan Stern and also published a paper on the long term gas supply and seasonal flexibility needs of the UK gas market and the impact of wind intermittency.  He also published ‘Shale Gas – The Unfolding Story’ in the Oxford Review of Economic Policy in 2011.


In January 2012 Howard published a paper examining the potential for future inter-regional gas price linkages under a range of scenarios which also formed the basis of a chapter in ‘The Pricing of Internationally Traded Gas’ published by Oxford University Press.  In 2012 he also published a paper on CCS for gas in the UK. His recent ‘Comment’ paper on the OIES website on the Outlook for UK Shale Gas has generated much interest.


Howard Rogers retired from BP in 2008 after 29 years.  Originally a Chemical Engineer by discipline, Howard spent much of his BP career in upstream oil and gas business development and strategy.  This included postings to the US, Kuwait and Azerbaijan.  His last post in BP was head of Fundamental Analysis, Global Gas.


Howard is based in Guildford, UK.


Howard’s paper titled “UK Shale Gas – Hype, Reality and Difficult Questions” is available here.
