Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis examines empirically whether the deregulation of the natural gas market in the EU has had an impact on the spotprice. Furthermore, the study will examine whether the deregulation has had the desired effect, to create a more competitive market and a more transparent pricing to the end consumer. The study makes use of the regression technique, Two-Stage Least Squares to examine the effect of the liberalization. Theoretical assumptions are made about the impact of liberalization and how this will affect pricing and competition in a liberalized market. Furthermore, the market forms such as perfect competition and monopoly is used as a theoretical framework in order to draw conclusions about the effect of the deregulation of the natural gas market in Europe. The results points to a fall in prices, it is not possible to say whether it is only due to the deregulation, but also other time-specific factors might have an impact.
