Energy Solutions, Inc. Natural Gas Analysis Identifies Turning Point for Prices

An Evaluation of Fundamental and Technical Price Drivers for Natural Gas That Identifies When Natural Gas Price Weakness Is Likely to End

VERONA, WI--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - Natural gas prices on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) recently reached calendar year 2011 lows, and the average twelve-month natural gas NYMEX strip recently hit a nine-year low. According to Energy Solutions, Inc.'s most recent analysis, Natural Gas Buying Guide, current price weakness should be embraced by buyers, particularly because historical trends point to a pre-winter natural gas price rally.

Prolific shale production has been a game-changing event for the natural gas industry, and this has taken natural gas prices to historically low-price levels. However, natural gas production growth is expected to slow considerably next year, averaging growth of just 1.6 Bcf/day versus growth of 4.5 Bcf/day in 2011. Meanwhile, natural gas demand in the U.S. will be on the rise as coal-fired electric power plants strive to comply with stringent new Environmental Protection Agency rules. By the second half of 2012, natural gas prices are expected to begin to gravitate into a higher trading range.

Natural Gas Buying Guide identifies the timing, duration, and extent of anticipated natural gas price moves over the next 12-18 months. By applying the data within Natural Gas Buying Guide, buyers and sellers will improve their bottom line by being proactive, rather than reactive, to natural gas price moves.

"Natural gas prices are not expected to spiral out of control," says Valerie Wood, President of Energy Solutions, Inc. "However, there are still opportunities for both buyers and sellers to improve profitability by entering the market at the right time. Natural Gas Buying Guide provides the guidance on how to time that entrance." Specifically, Natural Gas Buying Guide is an economical solution that will help natural gas buyers improve their natural gas purchasing process.
