William has been reporting and commenting on Europe’s gas markets for 20 years. He started in journalism at PH Energy Analysis (now ICIS Heren) in 1995, shortly before the UK devised the National Balancing Point — Europe’s first gas hub. His subsequent career has included senior management and editorial positions at FT Energy, Petroleum Economist, Argus Media and Platts, where he latterly edited International Gas Report. His focus has been on regional markets and how they function. William also speaks Russian and has had several literary/academic translations published.
