Gas Supply Marketing Forum - September 17 - 19, 2012



Gas Supply Marketing Roundtable - April 18-20, 2012

The Gas Supply Marketing Roundtable was held in conjunction with the SGA Management Conference at the Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas on April 18-20, 2012.  The Roundtable was attended by 25 SGA Members. 

Thanks to Mark Lowe, Washington Gas and Steve Mathews, Laclede Gas for co-chairing the planning meeting for the GSM Roundtable.   As has become the standard and expection of those attending the presentations were timely, on point and provided valuable information to take away from the Roundtable.

Justin Carlson, Bentek Energy provided a thought provoking presentation from both the supply side and demand side of the natural gas market.  How much storage will be available for the imbalance between supply and demand this summer?  We came out of winter with an imbalance of 7.7 Bcfd. Justin, thanks for the thought you put in the presentation. 

The first day's afternoon session was filled with exceptional presentations from Steve Harris - Cheniere Energy, Alan Mayberry - Deputy Associate Administrator for Field Operations with PHMSA and Dr. Raymond Orbach, Director of the University of Texas at Austin's Energy Institute. 

Steve provided the attendees with the implications of an LNG export market on the supply and demand for natural gas and an update on their certificate process and infrastructure. 

Alan gave us a perspective of the natural gas industry from a federal regulatory view point.  The Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration is responsible for pipeline safety oversight working under the Department of Transportation.  Clearly the recently implemented DIM and previously implemented TIM regulations have implications on the commercial aspects of the natural gas industry and are definitely worth a review. 

Dr. Raymond Orbach provide an interesting view of the education of the public and regulators and legislators regarding the facts and science associated with hydraulic fracturing for natural gas wells.  The message was spot on:  focus on the facts and science. 

Again, thanks to Mark and Steve for another outstanding GSM Roundtable.  Plan to join us in Clearwater, Florida at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Resort & Spa on September 17-19, 2012 for the GSM Forum and in New Orleans at the Hyatt Regency on April 3-5, 2013 for the GSM Roundtable.

Jessica Miller, Business Development, El Paso Energy, gave an overview of the infrastructure issues being addressed in the Marcellus Shale development to deal with the NGL's being produced in conjunction with the natural gas.  The natural gas is rich in natural gas liquids and the current facilities are constraining the production of natural gas. 

Richard Hoffman, Executive Director, The INGAA Foundation, provided a view of the infrastructure requirements of the future for the natural gas markets.  The presentation, titled: "Midstream Infrastructure Thru 2035 & other INGAA Foundations Projects."  Rich describes the critical infrastructure that needs to be built and expanded to support a growing and healthy natural gas market in the US. 

Matt Sheppard, Senior Director-Corporate Development and Government Affairs, concluded the Forum on Wednesday morning sharing Chesapeake's public relations, outreach and education programs ongoing in the Marcellus Shale area (West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York) to ensure the continued development of hte resources in the region with the support of all stakeholders.
