                     President and CEO 

                     Philadelphia Gas Works

We've all heard about the vast natural gas resources "discovered" in Pennsylvania and as a result expect natural gas market prices to remain at current levels.  Is this a fair assumption?  What will reduced price and increased availability do to demand in the Northeastern U.S.?  Will combined cycle plants that were marginal be "in the money?"  How might pipeline capacity, basis and interruptible prices be affected?  Will we have a new trading contract other then Henry Hub?  What will be the affect on emerging natural gas technologies and markets such as CNG vehicles?

Come out to the May breakfast meeting and hear some informed opinions.

Get answers to your own questions about the quickly evolving natural gas market.

Golf is available after the presentation for meeting attendees.  Please reserve your space with Steve Goldberg via email at [email protected].  All greens fees are to be paid at the pro shop.
