Multi-Year Natural Gas Glut Could Soon Find Balance


Though consumers and natural gas providers have benefited from the multiyear glut, evidence shows the market may soon find balance.

Onshore natural-gas production dropped in June for the fourth month in a row, and the number of rotary digs in North America hit 81 last week—an all-time low, according to oil field servicer Baker-Hughes. [WSJ]
