In this report we present information on the international natural gas markets (including LNG) and the natural gas market in Spain, carrying out monitoring of demand, stock levels, international flows of natural gas, and prices on the wholesale markets. We also compile information on the monthly evolution of natural gas supply for the Spanish market and the degree of supply diversification.
