Natural Gas

Natural gas, oil and coal all play a prominent and critical role in an energy-oriented economy— from heating homes to powering industry to fueling electric generation. Several factors – high oil and gas prices, seasonal demand for most fuel supply sources, tightening natural gas supply-and-demand balances in North America and the influences of a growing global market –contribute to an increasingly important yet highly uncertain and volatile fuel market.

This uncertainty affects procurement strategies, resource management decisions, investment decisions, and risk management activities across a wide range of industries and sectors, including the natural gas-fired electric generation sector and liquid natural gas (LNG) from around the world. All of these activities are conducted within the operating framework of a complex infrastructure of pipelines, other transportation means, storage and processing facilities, and the financial markets.

Navigant has provided oil, natural gas, coal, and renewable fuels market consulting services to electric power clients for more than 20 years.
