The balancing act - A look at oil market fundamentals over the next five years Since mid-2014, the crude oil market cycle has turned downward, resulting in ever lower prices, leading to deep capital expenditure (CAPEX) reductions, and creating turmoil across the oil and gas industry.

In the US, the debate about when renewable energy will achieve "grid parity", or the ability to compete on equal footing with conventional source of generation, generally assumes the continuation of at least some state and federal subsidies for wind power and utility-scale solar photovoltaics (PV). This analysis, however, takes a different track. Here, subsidies have been purposefully excluded from the assessment of grid parity in order to provide a different, and perhaps more relevant, perspective on the competitiveness of the renewable energy sector.

North America Shale Gas Growth Pulls LNG Exports The US is projected to become a net exporter of natural gas as LNG by 2017. The growth in gas supply exceeding expected demand and the pull of higher prices for natural gas in foreign markets such as Asia sets up the LNG exports scenario. Shale gas supply growth across North America is also profoundly altering historic market relationships between the US, Canada and Mexico in the world's largest integrated energy market. US pipeline gas exports to Mexico are projected to rise to 6 bcf/d by 2035 competing with more expensive LNG that otherwise might go to Mexico. DOWNLOAD
