Fracking shakes up gas economics

Newly found gas reserves means the U.S. no longer needs Canadian methane "natural gas" - leaves Canada’s producers desperate to export to Asia.

“There is literally shale gas everywhere in North America, everywhere from British Columbia which is a world-class resource, to Pennsylvania, New York and Eastern Canada,” said Geoff Morrison, B.C. operations manager for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

Canadian gas exports to the U.S. have dropped 16 per cent in five years and by 2035, according to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the decline will reach 62 per cent.

Even Canadians are buying their gas from the USA. Ontario, which was a traditional market for B.C. gas, now gets a third of its methane from the U.S.

“Our biggest and best customer is now becoming our competitor,” Morrison said. “That’s not a complaint, that’s an observation.

“The need for market diversification for British Columbia and Canadian gas is fundamentally important to the industry. Not only has the abundance of gas threatened the volume of gas we sell, it’s also having an impact on price.”

When price falls, so does the amount of gas royalty revenue coming to the province, Morrison added.

The International Energy Agency expects overall global demand for energy to increase 40 per cent by 2035.
