215 New Frontiers For The Gas Industry

A number of challenges face the natural gas industry going into the new millennium. Each of these will have an impact on the future buying and trading of the commodity. A summary of these follows:

1. Complete the natural gas decontrol to the final level—local markets in each state.

2. Complete the development of an energy industry that incorporates other energy sources like power, fuel oil, etc.

3. Develop the delivery system to insure secure supply of the larger quantities of natural gas demand forecast for future years.

4. Develop new supply sources to meet the forecasted demand through the 2015 period forward.

Each one of these will play an important role in the gas industry of the future. More important, each one will require capital flows into the industry to make them possible.
