Task Force on Ensuring Stable Natural Gas Markets

The American Gas Association and the American Gas Foundation participated in the release of the report which was issued by Bipartisan Policy Center and the American Clean Skies Foundation.

The report points to the potential for increased domestic natural gas price stability based on the growing availability of gas from shale formations, a diverse portfolio of contracting options and expanding infrastructure.  The report calls on governments to "encourage the development of domestic natural gas resources, subject to appropriate environmental safeguards."  The report notes that the efficient use of natural gas has the potential to reduce harmful air emissions, enhance energy security and improve the prospects of U.S.-based, energy-intensive manufacturing.
