Over the last five years, shale gas has become a major new source of natural gas supply to the US market, the largest gas market in the world. Over this time, both gas production and capital investment into shale development have grown considerably; bring this market once dominated by small private companies into the global spotlight.
Currently the North American gas market is seeing a period of substantial oversupply as booming production coupled with unmatched demand leave a glut of gas on the market. As constraints in the natural gas market become increasingly restrictive, competitive positioning becomes ever more vital for further business development.
