The Expanding Presence of Natural Gas and LNG in the Global Market

Despite volatility, gas and LNG demand is increasing. Conflicts are increasing volatility and uncertainty. But what is certain is that gas is seen as having a vital role for the future.

This month, we are excited to bring you natural gas and LNG market news and insights from all over the world from our energy experts. In this edition of our newsletter we cover record high U.S. natural gas production, how South Korea was able to transform their economy and the role natural gas played in this transformation, takeaways from leaders of both nations and industry at Africa Energy Week, and uncertainty brewing in how Colombia should approach developing their domestic resources. We have articles covering all these topics and more in our latest edition of our newsletter

Quick Brief – Record Breaking U.S. Natural Gas Production

The United States has experienced record production, with the Marcellus and Permian Shales doing the heavy lifting. This strength has facilitated exports, power burn, and storage injections with minimal impacts to pricing.

However, the growth isn’t expected to stop anytime soon. Using GPCM® Market Simulator for North American Gas and LNG™ , our forecast shows that production should continue to rise in order to meet growing demand for domestic consumption and for LNG exports from the United States.
