SNL ENERGY REPORT: GAS GUZZLERS: DELIVERY OF NATURAL GAS TO PJM PLANTS MORE THAN DOUBLES SINCE 2008

Natural gas-fired power generation has become increasingly economical over the last five years. This has created a boom in gas deliveries to power plants in the PJM Interconnection LLC market, which sits atop prolific shale gas formations.

According to an SNL Energy analysis of monthly fuel deliveries data reported on the EIA 923 filing, the volume of natural gas delivered to power plants in PJM has more than doubled during the past five years, increasing to a total volume of 1,115,022 MMcf in 2012 from 440,853 MMcf in 2008. Over this same period, the annual volume weighted average cost of gas delivered to these plants fell to $3.21/MMBtu in 2012 from $10.41/MMBtu for 2008.
