European Union Discussing Revised Natural Gas Price Cap Proposal of €220/Mwh 12/7/2022

The European  Union is currently struggling to agree on a proposed natural gas price cap. A handful of countries oppose the cap over concerns it will make it harder to obtain supplies. On the other hand, other members see the cap as a way to protect consumers from price spikes. 

Currently, the bloc is discussing a €220/cap which would only be implemented on prompt month TTF prices. TTF prices would also have to be at least €35/Mwh higher than LNG prices in the region for the cap to be implemented. 

An additional meeting may occur on December 19th to hash everything out.
