A "Shocking" Shut-in Scenario for Canadian Natural Gas

OilPrice.com -- Canada is full of natural gas.

The country's gas storage market is near capacity, in fact -- much earlier than normal in the current gas injection season.

One scenario -- which no one wants -- has storage completely filling up... something that has never happened before.

What would happen to the price of natural gas in Canada, and who's most vulnerable in this scenario?

In the U.S., analysts are talking about theoretical full storage just before withdrawal season starts.

In Canada, though, the issue is much more pressing—still hypothetical, but certainly still possible..

“If storage did get full, it would only be for 1-2 months in a worst case scenario,” says Geoff Ready, an energy analyst at Haywood Securities in Calgary. “The market will correct itself but there could be...

another OilPrice.com (mouthpiece of Pig Oil) piece.

Make it worst case scenario so that everyone is scared out of their minds and doesn't pay attention to the real issues.

Judgemobile...you make a good point! Worst case scenario is going to sell newspapers and internet interest! Many of there dooms-day prognosticators are full of it! And no doubt why they have brown eyes.

Hope they build more storage. It's always good to have an emergency supply to fall back on.

Canadian storage facilities are full, so prices should be less? Right! Just like US NG prices, they will never go down! My home gas bill has not gone down, so why should high storage capacity NG prices go down too.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Notice in the mail/bill last week from Enbridge; natural gas supplier to homes and business in Ontario, states rate increase for this winter.
Some what surprised, as natural gas consumption was low last year, due to warmer weather in N. America. They must be hoping for a frigid winter this season. The indication by the summer heat now in N. America, including the northern territories would possibly suggest that maybe another warmer winter; but who am I to say, I'm no weather person.
Maybe this will be an anomaly and our thermometers will bottom out. Hope not, I'm hoping that eventually I will have palm trees and orange trees growing yr. round.
Anyone for a pina colada with a slice or orange (they may not go together, who cares, it's my dream)!!! {:-)|

Use more natural gas and find a way to deal with the methane production problems with natural gas and burn it too. If not then production halts until storage or supply demands more. Is that not the way supply and demand works?

We need to stop promoting the silly EV's that don't make any economic sense. We need to start promoting CNG powered trucks and cars. North America has many decades of abundance of natural gas. We should use it instead of exporting it to Asia.

Full storage would never happen here. Before it happened some major pipeline or storage problem would cause loss of transport or storage capacity and swift price increases.
