Europe saved $8 billion on its natural gas bill last year because surging U.S. shale production and a shake-up in EU energy markets forced Russia to change its gas pricing mechanism, the head of the International Energy Agency said on Friday.

Fatih Birol, speaking as the IEA released its annual gas report, said 2018 was a „golden year” for natural gas which accounted for 45 percent of total global energy growth, which in turn was the fastest in two decades.

He said the shift in global gas markets stemming from the U.S. shale gas revolution, a rapid expansion of the liquefied natural gas industry and EU liberalisation of energy markets, had forced Russia to change its oil-indexed pricing of gas.
