Despite the bitterly cold, and blistering winter the Eastern Seaboard has just fought through, the mild and almost non-existent winter of the West Coast has the US using 30 percent less natural gas than we did last year. And now according to The Fiscal Times, "there is over 1,470 billion cubic feet of natural gas in storage." With the peak season over, improved natural gas pipelines, and this increase in supply, the US is experiencing the lowest price for natural gas in three years.
The improved pipeline situation is a result of new pipelines, and older ones being re-purposed, making it easier to get the gas where it needs to go at a fraction of the cost, and ultimately driving down the end price as well. The US Energy Information Administration claims, "The US natural gas pipeline network is a highly integrated transmission and distribution grid that transports natural gas to and from any where in the continental US. The grid is comprised of more than 210 natural gas pipeline systems, over 300 thousand miles of interstate and intrastate transmission pipelines, more than 11 thousand delivery points, 24 market centers or hubs, and 400 underground natural gas storage facilities."
It's likely that natural gas drillers, coal mining companies, and coal plant owners will be the hardest hit by the low prices, and will have to make strong and effective decisions to improve their operations in order to absorb some of the lost revenue. While consumers, and utilities that own their own power plants will come out ahead. It will be imperative for drilling companies to increase their productivity by deploying advanced technology, more efficient equipment, and smarter operating software systems. The natural gas industry certainly isn't going anywhere, and will most like come out of the price plummet situation more streamlined, effective, and prosperous.

Making sure your business is API SPEC Q1 compliant is the first step in receiving your API SPEC Q1 certification. Using a web-based technology to ensure that you are replicating quality management systems across all departments and personnel makes it easier to earn and maintain your certification.
How are you currently tracking your company’s performance against the Q1 requirements? If it’s all on paper and not computer-based, you run the risk of missing opportunities to document and standardize business practices to meet the standards. A web-based software simplifies tracking compliance and building it into organizational processes. And, because it’s web-based, there’s no need to purchase or maintain complicated hardware. Rolling out your new system does not need to be time consuming or hard.
When selecting a software, choose one that easily integrates with your existing technology infrastructure and applications. In today’s wired world, it’s also important to select a tool that is compatible with and accessible from your mobile devices. Being able to access the program and receive alerts and email notifications wherever you are minimizes the likelihood that critical updates will be missed or received late.
Because no two businesses are the same, the software must be flexible enough to customize. Being able to report against your metrics and key performance indicators improves organizational visibility. That visibility reduces the cost of effective quality control and constrained resources. And, it will allow your company to achieve higher customer satisfaction rates and shorter lifecycles for new product launches.
