Winter is here. Get an outlook on North American natural gas, and compare the forecast with last year.

North America is heading into the winter with natural gas storage inventories well below the 5-year average, but does it even matter with production reaching as high as 85 Bcf/d?

Replay our North American natural gas outlook webinar to learn about our expectations for this winter and how it compares to last winter.

You will also recieve a look at what a below-normal weather scenario means and how high Henry Hub prices will need to reach in order to destroy enough demand to balance the market.
