Is the Perfect Storm Coming?
The perfect storm is coming. After a 7-year bear market, many natural gas bulls have given up entirely on the sector. The continued rig efficiencies and technological improvements proved many shale bears wrong, and gas production continued to climb despite rig counts sitting at historic lows.
We think the market is ripe for a rip, and prices this time around will remain higher for longer. We think prices will average $3.50/MMBtu versus the STRIP estimate of $3/MMBtu, and natural gas producers will outperform going forward.
What do you think?
