The gas markets in China and in key energy jurisdictions along the Belt and Road Initiative are being reformed in order to ensure energy supply in a more cost effective, energy efficient and socially and environmentally responsible way. Law has an important role to play for the success of gas market reforms, yet its function has been insufficiently studied in the Asian context. The workshop examines the legal and regulatory aspects of gas market reforms in China, the Eurasian Economic Union, Russia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, with a focus on third party access to pipelines, unbundling, and tariff regulation, and taking into account the limits to the role of gas in the context of decarbonization.
