Natural Gas

We Help Manage Your Risk Levels & Gas Demand

Natural gas production volumes and prices have fluctuated dramatically over the past 10 years with the development of shale production facilities. Shale gas production tends to cost more than gas from conventional wells, because of the expense of the massive hydraulic fracturing treatments required to produce shale gas, and of horizontal drilling. It is estimated that the US has over a 100-year supply in natural gas but unpredictable weather, storage levels, transportation pipelines to high demand markets and the emergence of a global LNG market have all contributed to the recent increase in natural gas volatility. In the US, natural gas is used to produce 33% of the electricity and heat over half the homes in the country.
