In this month’s issue, Olga Gorstenko discusses the U.S. government’s attempt to increase coordination between the natural gas and electric industries as a result of the growing interdependence of these two sectors. Issues that have driven this interdependence are an increased reliance on natural gas for power production, demand spikes, a shortage of pipeline capacity, inadequate infrastructure, and misaligned scheduling practices. Olga Gorstenko’s In Depth article from the September 2012 issue of DataWatch on factors affecting U.S. natural gas demand and the impact these factors have on natural gas price projections has been reprinted. Numerous short articles provide updates on FERC’s gas-electricity coordination, Thomson Reuters’ new tool for oil market participants, Euronext’s UTP solution for four MENA exchanges, and more.
