Plenty of Natural Gas, But...

Getting it to where it’s needed, and in sufficient quantities, is not always easy.

Take the state of Alaska, for example. Although the US is awash in gas right now because of the shale gas boom, an Alaskan news source tells us that Gas shortage could leave Anchorage in the dark. According to the article, Alaska had better have a mild winter, or Anchorage residents could be shivering in dimly lit homes — or worse. The reasons are declining local production and insufficient gas infrastructure.

On the other side of the world, we learn that Iran minister sees winter gas shortage. Iran has large natural gas reserves, but a domestic shortage has arisen because of growing consumption and slow development of gas fields.
