star this property answer text <p>The UK benefits from a diverse range of gas sources. Merchant gas assets (including gas interconnectors and gas storage assets) play key roles in a flexible energy system and offer significant benefits by facilitating the efficient transport, storage, and trading of gas, and by promoting efficient wholesale prices through increased competition. EU legislation currently underpins the regulation of these merchant assets, with domestic regulation overseen by Ofgem, the independent regulator. The government aims to maximise the benefits of gas interconnection as part of its future relationship with the EU.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The proposed closure of Rough does not significantly affect security of gas supply which remains strong. Great Britain continues to benefit from highly diverse and flexible sources of gas supply, including indigenous production, six international gas pipelines with Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands, and three LNG terminals. Analysis shows GB supplies can meet gas demand even under severe weather conditions for an extended period of time, and this has always happened.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK benefits from a strong, liquid market which has delivered a system built on supply diversity. It would not be appropriate to comment on a specific company which remains open and operational. However, we have assessed the system’s resilience if we were to lose one or more major pieces of infrastructure. We will publish our detailed analysis shortly. In summary, our assessment is that UK gas supply would be resilient to multiple infrastructure losses. We enjoy diverse and competitive supplies of gas which have always historically responded very effectively to the loss of major infrastructure minimising any consumer price effects.</p><p> </p> more like this

As part of negotiations on the Withdrawal Agreement, we have agreed with the EU that goods placed on the market before the end of the implementation period may freely circulate on both UK and EU markets and that compliance activity for these goods, such as conformity assessment, is recognised by both parties.</p><p> </p><p>On 12<sup>th</sup> July the Government published a White Paper, which sets out a clear proposal for our future relationship with the EU. This includes a proposal for a free trade area between the UK and the EU and the maintenance of a common rulebook for goods, supported by arrangements covering all relevant compliance activity, such as conformity assessment. This would provide for frictionless trade at the border. Negotiations are ongoing, and we will continue to engage with UK stakeholders to understand and represent their concerns as we develop our negotiating position.</p>
