As consumers increasingly struggle to keep pace with soaring costs of electricity and gasoline, they are simultaneously bombarded with information suggesting that the end is near for many “conventional” energy sources. Fortunately this is not the case with cleaner-burning, affordable natural gas.
The American Clean Skies Foundation commissioned Navigant to undertake and assessment of the North American Natural Gas Supply. The study was conducted by a team of consultants under the leadership of Directors Rick Smead and Gordon Pickering. Also contributing expert advice and input Ken B. Medlock, III, a fellow in energy studies at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy and an adjunct assistant professor of economics at Rice University.
In July 2008, the North American Natural Gas Supply Assessment was published, estimating that the true recoverable gas was far greater than other published estimates. Today, the EIA’s natural gas estimate is now in-line with the resource levels first stated by Navigant in 2008.
