Hot Weather, Hot LNG Markets

We present this month, insights and commentary covering North America and the Global Natural Gas market in this new edition of our newsletter.

The summer months are upon us in the North and with hot weather comes high demand for natural gas and LNG for power. We present diverse commentary primarily covering the market in the United States as well as both Europe and Asia.

We have a quick brief on natural gas consumption trends during the summer within the United States; a new episode of Global Gas & LNG Insights in partnership with Natural Gas World; analysis of what markets in Europe and Asia are facing in the short-term; the case of Utah and its soaring natural gas withdrawals; the role of LNG in a realistic energy transition, and takeaways from the successful LNG seminar RBAC held in collaboration with JLC in Singapore.

We hope you enjoy these articles and interviews, and they give you greater insight into the energy market and industry, all with the goal of increasing your knowledge and helping you make better energy decisions.

Quick Brief – Summer Gas Consumption Trends in the U.S.

Natural gas consumption for power generation during the summer months has been steadily rising in the U.S. since 2014.

It is expected that the demand records that were set in 2023 will again be matched in 2024. However, despite overall growth in the total electricity generated across the entirety of the United States during the summer, natural gas itself is not expected to see a larger presence in the energy mix compared to 2023.

The sources of electricity generation for the United States have steadily been shifting towards a higher presence of both renewables and natural gas while the usage of coal has been on the decline.
