2024-2025 Natural Gas Forecast: Affordable and Steady

Hello everyone, check this out! The energy landscape is completely changing and there are some interesting things happening right now with natural gas in the United States. So, according to the latest EIA forecast, 2024 and 2025 will be crazy years: we're talking about prices staying low but production skyrocketing. It's going to mix things up for both newbies and industry veterans. Stay tuned, because this is going to change things in a big way!


Prices Trending Downward: The benchmark U.S. natural gas spot price at the Henry Hub is projected to stay below $3.00 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) in 2024 and 2025. This marks a significant drop from the $6.50/MMBtu average in 2022 and a slight increase from the $2.54/MMBtu in 2023.


Demand vs. Supply Dynamics: Despite a forecasted increase in demand, prices remain low. This is due to the balance between rising demand and steady supply growth. In 2024 and 2025, demand is expected to slightly outpace supply, but not enough to cause major price hikes.


Production Peaks: U.S. natural gas production is predicted to hit new highs, reaching an average of 105.0 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2024 and 106.4 Bcf/d in 2025. This robust production contributes to keeping prices affordable.


Inventory Surplus: Natural gas inventories have been above the five-year average, a trend expected to continue. This surplus plays a key role in stabilizing prices despite increasing demand.

Sector-Specific trends forecast:


LNG Exports: Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports are set to rise, with a 4% increase in 2024 and a significant 17% boost in 2025.


Residential and Commercial: Consumption in these sectors is expected to grow in 2024, driven by predictions of colder weather.


Power Sector: Natural gas use in power generation will see a modest increase in 2024, but is expected to dip slightly in 2025.


Industrial Sector: This sector might see lower consumption, balancing out the overall demand.


Price Projections: Although the demand is anticipated to exceed supply, leading to a minor price rise in 2024, the abundant storage will help keep prices relatively low. The trend continues into 2025, with LNG exports exerting more pressure on prices.
