Dr. Kent Moors writes: On Thursday morning, I’ll be delivering my major address on the future of natural gas. The occasion is a high-powered meeting hosted by Dominion Transport at the beautiful Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in western Pennsylvania.

My keynote presentation is entitled “Natural Gas Moving Forward: LNG, Hubs, and Pricing Prospects.” And in it I address where liquid natural gas (LNG) prices have been… where they are now… and where they’re going.Read full article... Read full article...

Wall Street analysts unanimously cheered last fall when the price of oil fell from nearly $100 a barrel in June of 2014, to almost $45 a barrel by the end of January 2015. The theory was that the average American family, paying less at the pump, would plow this savings into other goods and services, giving GDP a much needed boost.Read full article...

Natural gas has been absolutely pummelled for the last decade after making an all time high in 2005 at US$15.78. Price now sits around US$2.75. What a spanking!
So, does there look to be an end in sight to this devastating downtrend? Yes and no. Let's begin with the "no" which involves the big picture yearly chart.Read full article... Read full article...

Russia and China’s Natural Gas Deals Are a Death Knell for Canada’s LNG Ambitions / Commodities / Natural Gas
In recent years, a number of Asian companies have been betting that Canada will be able to export cheap liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its west coast. These big international players include PetroChina, Mitsubishi, CNOOC, and, until December 3, Malaysian state-owned Petronas.
However, that initial interest is decidedly on the wane. In fact, while the British Columbia LNG Alliance is still hopeful that some of the 18 LNG projects that have been proposed will be realized, it’s now looking less and less likely that any of these Canadian LNG consortia will ever make a final investment decision to forge ahead.Read full article...

Natural Gas Prices are Going Higher (So are these “Super Shift” Investor Opportunities) / Commodities / Natural Gas
Dr. Kent Moors writes: While everybody is focused on oil, natural gas prices are moving in a very different direction.
As of this afternoon, natural gas prices at Henry Hub stood at $4.15 per 1,000 cubic feet (or million BTUs). Since last Thursday, the price of natural gas has jumped by 13.7%.Read full article... Read full article...

The world’s leading liquefied national gas (LNG) exporter is the tiny Arab kingdom of Qatar, whose 77 million tons per year (mtpy) account for 30% of global LNG exports.
When the U.S. begins exporting massive quantities of LNG in 2015, it will immediately be catapulted into a position as one of the world’s largest exporters as well.Read full article... Read full article...

Kent Moors writes: To hear some analysts tell it, geopolitics and the weather are exogenous events when it comes to energy prices.
That is, somehow both natural gas and crude oil prices would operate quite “rationally” if it weren’t for either of them.
According to these guys, supply and demand is what drives the market, and from time to time these “outside elements” only muddle things up.Read full article... Read full article...

As the situation in Ukraine continues to unravel, the West is certain to develop another round of sanctions against Russia.
Unlike the first set, these new sanctions will almost certainly have a more direct bearing on the energy sector.
And now that Russian gas behemoth Gazprom (OTC: OGZPY) has once again threatened to cut off the gas supply to Ukraine if Kiev doesn’t pay what it owes, worry has begun to creep into the European Union headquarters in Brussels.Read full article... Read full article...

Dr. Kent Moors writes: During the height of the Deepwater Horizon tragedy four years ago, I had my graduate students monitor the flow of oil from the sunken platform in the Gulf of Mexico.
Most of their work involved rather straightforward calculations based on undersea camera footage.
But from time to time, flimsy protoplasmic-like structures would float across the screen. The students called them “ghosts.”Read full article... Read full article...

LNG Catalysts About to Hand You the investment Opportunity of the Decade / Commodities / Natural Gas
A century ago, the opening of the Panama Canal changed the face of global trade.
By joining the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, ships from the East Coast no longer had to make the treacherous 8,000-mile trip around Cape Horn to reach the markets in Asia or on the West Coast.
Now, 100 years later, the 50-mile long canal is about to do it all over again.Read full article... Read full article...

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Pundits have been quick to label last week’s mammoth gas deal between Russia and China as “historic.”
That may be true. But the fact is there are a number of important elements in the $400 billion agreement that have yet to be decided.Read full article... Read full article...
