Natural Gas Market Fundamentals Post-Conference Workshop
Learn about the key aspects of natural gas production, storage, and demand that impact downstream markets. With natural gas becoming the fuel of choice for power plants and industrial facilities, important questions are arising: • How long will the current low price environment persist? • How can you leverage low gas prices to benefit your facility or project?
This training session, led by BENTEK Energy industry experts, will introduce you to

process in between.
