Gas Basis Outlook

In order to keep our clients in front of basis movements in the North American natural gas market, the Gas Basis Outlook service integrates our deep knowledge of pricing, infrastructure, production, and financial markets into one, concise report. Each quarter, we deliver updates on infrastructure developments, our proprietary production view and a 5-year, monthly Henry Hub and 23 basis markets forecast.


On a monthly basis, clients receive an updated view of BTU’s infrastructure and supply / demand views. As with any BTU Analytics’ subscription, access to our team for any questions between publications is not only permitted, it is encouraged.
