Because natural gas has become the number one fuel to produce electricity, the price of it might go up soon. Previously, it was coal that provided most of the fuel to produce electric power, but that has changed thanks to the shale revolution. When the prices of natural gas fell due to the shale revolution in the 1990’s, it became a better alternative than coal. The other reason it is so desirable compared to coal is the fact that coal plants must be placed near to a coal mine; due to coal needing to continuously fuel a power plant.
Natural gas also complements the alternative power resources, solar and wind. When these two fail to produce enough power, natural gas can be used by simply firing up a gas turbine. Natural gas has fallen by as much as 88% over the last 8 years, and while many might expect this trend to continue, there are reasons to believe it may not in 2018. The reason is that there may be a higher need for it in the next year, and history has shown that when more gas is needed, the price can shoot up. Visit Matt Badiali at medium.com to know more.
Matt Badiali has been studying natural resources for more than 20 years, and is one of the top experts in the industries of energy and mining. While some industry experts speculate from afar, he gets his hands dirty by visiting and participating in a lot of his investments. To do this, he has explored abandoned mines, been the owner of oil wells, has worked on drill rigs, and has traveled all over the world. He has done this because he knows that an investor has no real idea about his or her investment unless they go see it for themselves.
Matt Badiali studied at Penn State University where he received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Earth Sciences. He went further and earned a Masters Degree in Geology while attending Florida Atlantic University. He has always valued education, and to spread more about his discoveries as well as to share his passion, he was a teacher of geology at the University of North Carolina. From the skills he learned then and moving forward as a public speaker and educator, he has been able to present what he has discovered to top geological conferences. He has also worked with Exxon Mobil and Anadarko by revealing what he has learned.
