Supply of Salzburg AG



EIS as a wholesale trader of natural gas manages all long term delivery contracts of Salzburg AG with Norwegian, Russian and Austrian partners.


Because of the historical growth of the Austrian gas supply a strong dependence from the main European gas suppliers Russia and Norway arose. Because of the increasing prices for energy on crude oil and oil product markets, a strong reliance on the oil prices is given which doesn't seem to be fundamentally reasonable. On the other hand the existing little number of producers represent less technical or commercial availability.



Especially the shortage on the supplies from Russia caused by troubles in the Ukraine in 2006 and 2009 demonstrated how sensitive the European gas supply situation is constructed and furthermore describes the concentrated supply situation of the largest supplier.
