Technologies & Markets Deep-Dive | Evolution of U.S. Gas Markets & Pricing
North American natural gas markets have gone through an almost unimaginable shift in the past 10 years. The onset of the shale revolution has dropped production costs and re-plumbed the entire pipeline network to transform the U.S. into a net exporter of natural gas. To put into perspective, over the past 10 years as production has increased by over 20 Bcfd to 72 Bcfd, the U.S. natural gas trade balance has gone from importing 12 Bcfd to becoming a net exporter on select days this past winter. The question we aim to answer is whether North American natural gas is cost-effective to become an integral component of global gas trade.
