The Energy Supply Taskforce was announced on the 8 September 2022, with the objective of investigating commercial alternatives for the United Kingdom’s energy security. Its remit covers natural gas and not the wider energy market. The Taskforce is engaging with a broad range of gas producers and shippers, and is advising Ministers accordingly. It would not be appropriate to publish a report on their work, which is highly commercially sensitive.
