We focus on analyzing trends in the oil market. Rig counts in the U.S. and the world have trended closely with crude oil price. Conflicts in any oil-producing and/or consuming region may significantly affect oil prices. Demand for heating oil in the winter may impact oil prices. Lastly, world production and consumption remain at the forefront of pricing in the oil and gas industry.
We focus on honing in on the domestic natural gas market. Major factors that control the price of natural gas include: the winter season, pipeline infrastructure, and the rate at which operators are producing. With hydraulic fracturing techniques extracting natural gas from shale plays across the United States, there has been an influx in infrastructure projects, which will move a glut of natural gas to market.
Where do we get our electricity from? Most of the United States' electricity is supplied by coal and natural gas fired plants. With the domestic shale boom, an overwhelming amount of companies are switching from coal to natural gas, as it's both cleaner and cheaper. PSEMA's job is to analyze these trends and give you quick, digestible market information.
Renewable Energy consists of solar, wind, and geothermal energy sources. Energy sources like Nuclear, hydro-electric, and biomass are technically considered alternative sources. Renewable Energy is dependent on three major factors: Political, science/technology, and Finance/economics.
