In the last several years, growing natural gas production from shale plays has dramatically impacted the US natural gas market, both in volume and pricing. The focus of this webinar will be to share insights into future gas pricing and supply/demand scenarios, as well as to describe options for refiners and petrochemical operators to take advantage of low priced fuel gas. A methodology will be explained for analyzing and capturing energy usage benefits even when natural gas is inexpensive.
This webinar will answer:
• Why has the US natural gas price disconnected from the US crude oil price?
• How long will the price remain disconnected?
• How are refineries and petrochemical plants affected by low natural gas prices?
• What opportunities for plant operators arise from low natural gas prices?
