Power game: Standing at the end of the gas pipeline is a risk

European governments have taken swift decisions, including policy U-turns, to address energy security issues. In Ireland, the focus is solely on the impossible task of compensating everyone, aka ‘stressed families’, for higher import prices; and the threat to security of supply, particularly for gas, has been downplayed.

Continental Europe depends on Russia for about 40 percent of its gas, but Ireland appears to be in a happier position. More than two-thirds of Ireland’s volume comes in pipelines from the UK and the remainder from the Corrib field off Co Mayo. Almost all British gas comes from the North Sea and Norway via Scotland, and almost none from Russia.
