In the US, Henry Hub natural gas spot prices remained around $3/MMBtu in July, according to US EIA data, showing strength in their stabilization from volatile price increases and decreases earlier in the year. Hot weather in the US is driving up demand for cooling, which is boosting power burn and consumption of natural gas. Exports to Mexico via pipeline, and to other areas via LNG tanker from Sabine Pass, are also on the rise. Meanwhile, US production of NGL, LPG, ethane/ethylene and propane/propylene slid slightly in April after across-the-board increases in March. GP

The New LNG Imperative

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
