Western Canada Gas Supply

Western Canada is a critically important gas supply basin for North America.  In 2000, it produced over 16.5 Bcf/d, 23% of Canadian and US consumption.  In its most recent report, the Canadian Gas Potential Committee states that Western Canada “will continue to be the main gas supply area in Canada”.  However, over 3.5 Bcf/d of new productive capacity must be added each year to replace natural decline.  Sustaining basin productivity at competitive F&D costs will challenge operators faced with decreasing initial rate per new well and increasing initial decline rates. 

In view of the strategic importance of Western Canadian gas supply, the current challenges and future potential, all participants in the North American natural gas industry, from the wellhead to the burner tip, have a vital interest in the supply trends from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB).  Some of the questions our clients ask include:


 How is the gas supply from Western Canada changing?


 What are the trends in the sources of supply?


 What are the impacts of technology on gas supply?


 Who are the growth operators adding new gas supply?


 How does an operator compare to its peers and industry?


 What is the ultimate potential?


 What is the forecast for supply?

Forward Energy Group answers many of these questions based on research we pioneered in our flagship multi-client study Natural Gas Supply Trends in Western Canada 1990-2002 .  Starting with your questions, we develop customized solutions that begin with answers from our proprietary databases and integrate critical current information.  We continuously monitor activity and supply trends for fundamental shifts in industry behaviour
