Ways to Invest in Natural Gas

The US Energy Information Administration says natural gas is the most widely used fuel for space heating in the US, and it has also started to beat out coal as the top fuel for power generation. Even so, demand for natural gas around the world can be volatile as it is very much dependent on the weather.

Natural gas is a hydrocarbon gas mixture primarily composed of methane. It should not to be confused with ethane, which is another type of odorless gas. It can be found by itself or in association with oil, and is one of the safest and most useful forms of clean energy. Natural gas is often cooled to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) in order to reduce transport risk and allow for easier storage.

For some investors, natural gas investment remains an exciting frontier and a potentially lucrative portfolio addition. Read on for a more in-depth look at why natural gas investing can be compelling.

10 Natural Gas Facts for Investors

After trading at historical lows for a number of years, natural gas prices experienced exponential growth in 2021. Going forward, the supply and demand fundamentals for the natural gas industry are expected to fare better in the coming years.

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts that the Henry Hub natural gas spot price will rise through the winter of 2021-2022. The EIA sees rising demand in the winter alongside reduced natural gas production leading to upward pressure on natural gas prices. The agency said natural gas prices could increase sharply during the period, rising from an average of US$3.25/MMBtu (metric million British thermal units) in the first half of the year to US$5.80/MMBtu in Q4 2021. However, EIA's average Henry Hub natural gas spot price forecast for 2022 shows a decline to US$4.01/MMBtu.

Prices have risen on the back of growing demand for natural gas, which is used primarily as a heating fuel and to generate electricity. In fact, natural gas is currently the most widely used fuel for space heating in the US, and has also started to beat out coal as the top fuel for electricity generation. Before jumping into the space, here are 10 more basic natural gas facts to know.

Imperial announces plan to accelerate share purchases under normal course issuer bid

Imperial Oil Limited (TSE: IMO, NYSE American: IMO) announced today that it plans to accelerate its share purchases under its normal course issuer bid (NCIB). The current NCIB allows Imperial to repurchase up to five percent of its 711,673,439 outstanding common shares as of June 15, 2021, or a maximum of 35,583,671 shares prior to June 28, 2022. This maximum includes shares purchased from Exxon Mobil Corporation (ExxonMobil) outside of, but concurrent with the NCIB to maintain its proportionate share ownership.

As of the end of October 2021, Imperial had repurchased 11,956,028 shares under the NCIB and from ExxonMobil. By accelerating its purchases, Imperial now plans to repurchase the remainder of the maximum number of shares allowed by the end of January, 2022. Based on the weighted average price paid for purchases in October under the NCIB program of $42.70, the acceleration would represent an aggregate return of over $1 billion to participating shareholders from November, 2021 to the end of January, 2022. Actual cost of purchases will be based on prices at the time of purchase in accordance with the NCIB rules. Purchase plans may be modified at any time without prior notice.
