Natural Gas Supply

The development of shale gas in recent years has created fundamental shifts in natural gas supplies, markets, and costs. The wholesale natural gas infrastructure is expanding to deliver supplies to market. Retail natural gas markets are extending into new geographies, and natural gas supply is becoming increasingly integrated with electric power systems operations. The challenge of reliable and economic operation of natural gas and electric systems has emerged, leading system operators and regulators to develop new practices to coordinate operations and planning, and leading utilities to improve infrastructure.

Daymark Energy Advisors assists clients to evaluate the economic and environmental trade-offs between increased reliance on low-cost natural gas, decarbonization goals, renewable investment targets, economic development, and controlling costs to consumers.
