The natural gas revolution in North America is transforming the competitive landscape in numerous industries, but the excess supply is also of global importance. With gasoline demand down in the United States, natural gas looks to be the fast-growing fuel over the next few decades. Even more, with two LNG export facilities recently approved and 20 move applications on file, the United States will play an increasing role on the global scale. 

As natural gas continues to grow as an electric-generating fuel throughout the world, the U.S. is in a nice position to supply this market due to an enormous amount of shale gas resources and a cost-leading technological position.
