Demand for natural gas is likely to outpace supply in 2017

After the year of rapid production growth we've experienced in 2016, some in the market are expecting more of the same in 2017. However, data suggests that demand is on the rise and will outpace supply in the new year.

Join us over lunch, on Thursday, December 8 at 11 a.m. CST for a complimentary look at next year, featuring presentations from S&P Global Platts Analysts that cover supply, demand, and LNG. This complimentary session is guaranteed to help you get that kick-start you need for the new year.

Supply Overview

Jeff Moore, Sr. Energy Analyst, S&P Global Platts

  • New infrastructure in the Northeast; how might potential delays impact production out of the Marcellus and Utica? Are there any other plays that might pick up the slack?
  • Producers are consolidating to a handful of specific basins, how does this change the flow dynamics for the US? What infrastructure might be needed to accommodate?
  • How will continued US natural gas production impact global markets? Where will this production go in 2017?

  • Baseload demand for gas has increased in the power market. There’s less coal capacity compared to previous years, which means a heavier reliance on natural gas generation. Also, EPA regulations and state Renewable Portfolio Standards will limit coal generation market share going forward.
  • LNG exports and pipeline exports to Mexico will add material demand in 2017. These sources of demand are fairly price inelastic, so it will show up in 2017.
  • Weather – we had an extremely warm winter last year, what happens if we see a return to normal?

12:30 p.m.

  • What are our expectations for exporting LNG in 2017?
  • What will prices be for the Gulf Coast Marker next year?
  • Will global demand for LNG continue to grow?
