New white paper highlights impacts of NGL expansion in the Northeast, vulnerabilities to NGL supply chain, infrastructure trends, and expectations for pricing

Genscape’s new service gives those most exposed the insight they need into this key area, across the entire supply chain,” - Suzanne Evans, Senior Product Manager, Genscape

A delicately balanced NGL supply chain has recently emerged in the Northeast, where production from the prolific Marcellus and Utica natural gas plays has become the leading NGL reserve in North America. The deep connectivity of gas production to NGL processing and transportation infrastructure is unprecedented, and it is essential for upstream and downstream market participants to have transparency into these rapidly expanding producing areas. Genscape’s new Marcellus/Utica NGL Supply Chain Monitoring Service provides subscribers with unique, real-time information on fractionation and pipeline operations using proprietary monitoring technology.

With expansive coverage and prompt delivery of critical information, this new Monitoring Service provides clients with the insight needed to optimize trading and supply. Genscape delivers critical information to support immediate trading, marketing, and production decisions.

“NGL production in the Marcellus and Utica NGL-rich gas shale plays is expected to continue to grow. The lack of storage, be it physical storage or ethane rejection capabilities, along with a lack of spare processing and transportation capacity in these plays leaves the NGL supply chain vulnerable to operational disruptions. Genscape’s new service gives those most exposed the insight they need into this key area, across the entire supply chain,” explains Suzanne Evans, senior product manager, ngls & petrochemicals.

In a newly published white paper, Genscape discusses the expansion of NGL production in the Northeast and delves into how Marcellus and Utica natural gas production has become dependent on the continuous operation of each infrastructure node and how disruptions impact the entire supply chain. The white paper also reviews production growth trends and expectations, effects of high ethane content and lack of storage capacity, and provides an analysis of the need for spot pricing in the Northeast.
