The coming battle over natural gas

Financial Post -- From co-dependent natural gas consumers and developers, Canada and the United States may soon be competing with each other as both countries start advancing their production plans for liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“I think there is a sense of competition at the moment between the U.S. and Canada for the [Asian] market,” said Noel Tomnay, head of global gas at Wood Mackenzie, an energy research and consulting firm.

Rising natural gas production on both sides of the border, coupled with benchmark Henry Hub prices tracking 31-year lows, are forcing North American producers to find growing markets willing to pay more.

“Currently, the U.S. is clearly advantaged because it has the existing infrastructure,” Mr. Tomnay said.

I lived in West TX in the early 80's and I knew a man who ran his pickup truck on LP. So why aren't we?

Maybe this international trade competition is another reason not to build the Keystone XL pipeline for Canada to ship through the U.S.

Those that don't see that LNG is the way to go just don't want to. It is a clean burning fuel (less CO2 emission); we have an abundant supply that will last until the next century and it will not damage internal combustion engines as does the 10% ethanol fuel. Besides it will help increase the price of natural gas which would increase my royalty check.

'goneupagain' has it right, and when it's done it will be just like the gas prices, they'll sell to the highest bidder and the public will be screwed again.

Hell, our prices are already high. I'm not seeing any benefit to this so-called over supply. My gasrate hasn't dropped in more than a year.
