Ohio Utica Shale

Shale natural gas took over energy conference

By Jim Mackinnon Published: March 8, 2013

The latest IHS CERAWeek program shows that natural gas is back, Platts exclaims.

Platts: "Last year, with US natural gas down in the $2/MMBtu dumps, no one wanted to talk about gas. No one.

"Tight oil! Shale oil! Metallurgical coal exports! Steam coal exports! Solar! Anything but natural gas.

"But these last few days — even on IHS CERAWeek’s day one 'Oil Day' — the Houston industry conference was all about gas.

"The irony: because gas is so cheap.

"Thus, it is ubiquitously desired: Arctic gas as LNG for Asian markets, natural gas vehicles, LNG locomotives, coal displacement by gas in power generation, gas as a petrochemical feedstock, gas replacing coal in steelmaking, and so on."
