Bentek

Low natural gas prices relative to other fuels, particularly coal and oil, as well as increasing environmental restrictions on coal-fired power generation are leading to rising natural gas demand projections in the power burn sector.

Bentek’s “Forward Curve Quarterly” expects power burn to increase 30 percent from 2012-17.  Natural gas demand in residential, commercial and industrial sectors also is rising. As a result, Bentek’s Henry Hub price forecast has moved above the NYMEX futures strip for the 2016-17 timeframe and Bentek has increased its Henry Hub forecast for the entire 2011-16 timeframe by 2 percent.

The “Forward Curve Quarterly” details Bentek’s five-year natural gas forecast and provides a fundamental-based, forward-looking picture of the North American natural gas marketplace. This report includes a sector-by-sector analysis of the underlying factors that drive price and offers insight into what U.S. natural gas market fundamentals will do during the next five years. 
 

Highlights include:

  • Power Burn: EPA Rules, Switching Will Lead to New Highs
  • Storage: Working Gas Levels Poised to Hit Record Highs in 2012
  • Res/Comm Demand: Gas Cuts into Fuel Oil, Propane Market Shares
  • Canadian Imports: Declines Will Accelerate on U.S. Supply Growth
