Summary

In 1978 the oversupply of natural gas was predicted to disappear within two yr but this oversupply has now been in existence over six yr. Lack of demand and increased availability of competitively-priced imports has increased price competition. The marketplace is struggling to reach equilibrium between supply and demand on prices. There are a lot of new ideas being tested now, and there are going to be more in the future.
