Gas distributors tell how their business strategies are changing in response to issues such as higher gas prices, electric M&A, LNG, and gas pipeline development.
Big changes are coming to the U.S. natural gas industry. As upstream developers work to expand capacity for importing liquefied natural gas (LNG), midstream and downstream players are asking questions about how these new resources will affect their businesses.
For gas marketers and distributors, LNG promises to bring greater price stability. But it also raises questions about long-term contracting, storage and pipeline capacity, and marketing strategies. To discuss these issues, assembled a roundtable of senior executives at U.S. midstream and upstream gas companies, including:
- Ron Bertasi, President & CEO, Southern Company Gas;
- Lawrence Downes, Chairman & CEO, New Jersey Resources and Chairman, American Gas Association;
- Don Felsinger, President and COO, Sempra Energy;
- Fred Fowler, President and COO, Duke Energy; and
