The study says that despite an uncertain price environment, the magnitude and speed of adjustment is changing all markets
Meyerfeld Lewin, a Premier Trading and Clearing Broker in the Asia Pacific that has a trading memberships with all major exchanges throughout the world, announced the release of its new study unconventional gas.
The growth of unconventional gas is spreading across the world with major implications over many years for markets and prices, according to the new Meyerfeld Lewin study – ‘Unconventional gas, a global business’ – which looks at where and how fast the revolution is taking place.
“Unconventional gas is causing a shift in the dynamics of the natural gas market which will be felt for many decades to come. Its spread around the world is being accelerated because it can make gas more affordable to consumers and reduce concerns about the security of supply.” said Albert Fung, Chief Strategy Officer for Meyerfeld Lewin.
The study identifies three emerging global trends:
- Shifting portfolio allocations: current price uncertainties are resulting in operators shifting their capital to more flexible, shorter-cycle investments, rather than in deep well projects which is exemplified by the United States.
- International growth of unconventional gas operators: new operators across the world are realizing the global opportunities and bringing new supplies to the markets such as China, Australia and Argentina, which will have an effect on markets before 2020.
- Interconnected markets: excess supplies in some countries have led to price normalization and other structural shifts that are making the market more global and transparent across the three main regional hubs of Asia, Europe and North America.
The study, which is the work of leading industry and academic experts from across the world, will be available upon its completion for clients only.
