Canadian-U.S. Natural Gas Trade

International Natural Gas Trade Project, Center for Energy Policy Research, Energy Lab, MIT


The MIT project on international gas trade is examining the forces affecting natural gas trade in the three major markets: North America, East Asia, and Western Europe. This report is on the North American unit, and has been divided into six elements: policy/regulation, supply, demand, contract issues, a small model used to simulate key factors, and a technical speculation on new uses for natural gas. The six background papers that follow deal with these elements. The introduction also synthesizes the first four papers.
