Last week, I delivered my major address on the future of natural gas. The occasion was a high-powered meeting hosted by Dominion Transport at the beautiful Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in western Pennsylvania.
My keynote presentation was entitled "Natural Gas Moving Forward: LNG, Hubs, and Pricing Prospects." In it I addressed where liquid natural gas (LNG) prices have been… where they are now… and where they're going.
I thought I would share my presentation with you in today's Money Morning, as it will be especially useful as we look for opportunities with investing in natural gas. Here's what I told my audience… the straight story on what's happening in the LNG sector…
A Brave New World for Natural Gas?
Ten years ago next month, I was sitting in a meeting of analysts, practitioners, and energy sages discussing the condition of the U.S. natural gas market. We all agreed that by 2020 the country would be importing at least 15% of the gas used daily.
That turned out to be quite a "B.S." read – "before shale," that is.
Well, these days we are at another juncture. And this one is going to propel us into quite a different market. I want to lay out for you what I have been experiencing in the world energy market, the import of discussions around the globe, and the impact on things closer to home.
"Brave New World" is going to be an understatement. And that becomes clear when we sketch out the current and short-term projections for natural gas production and demand, along with the picture attending, expanding end uses for gas – electricity generation, industrial applications, for vehicle fuel, and as feeder stock for petrochemicals.
