Methane market continues to register massive growth due to the various applications of the of the gas especially in electrical, and aerospace & defense, automotive and chemical industries. Methane is used in the manufacturing of natural gas and liquefied natural gas, the demand for which is expanding not only due to increased electricity generation needs but also due to expansion of the heating industry. Natural gas is more friendly than coal in terms of emission, more flexible than nuclear power and owing to the booming shale revolution in the US as well as the development of LNG trade across the globe, natural as is also readily available. Demand for natural gas has witnessed a 28% rise over the last decade and technological innovations are expected to keep the gas competitive.

While the methane market may witness some hindrance due to the gas’s greenhouse effect, there had been recent moves by the Environmental Protection Agency of the U.S. to reduce some of the federal restrictions previously levied on methane. Apparently, the EPA plans to let oil and gas operators regulate themselves when it comes to prevention of methane leakage from pipelines, wells and other infrastructure.

Competitive Landscape:

Some of the players in the methane market include Royal Dutch, BP PLC, Shell PLC G3 Exploration, China National Offshore Oil Company, China National Petroleum Corporation, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, Dart Energy Corporation, Black Diamond Energy Inc., American Gas Products, Halliburton Co., Senex Energy Limited, IGas Energy, TLOU Energy Ltd, Metgasco Ltd., Bow Energy etc.
