Cates, H. C. et al. 2002-03 gas storage season presents a supply conundrum. Oil and Gas Journal, 9th June 2003, 101(23) p.
Projections of growing US natural gas demand and concerns about the ability of North American producers to meet that demand raise doubts about industry's ability to fill gas storage this summer while at the same time meeting the needs of electric generators, industrial users, and other requirements. The potential gap between forecast US baseload natural gas requirements and production is best served by new production and incremental pipeline capacity.
