State Public Service Commissioner Renee Larrick led the August hearing on the proposed sale of Hope Gas from the Harrison County Courthouse in Clarksburg. The Public Service Commission will also have to review the Peoples Gas WV acquisition.
Our growing employee base is proud to serve our neighbors and customers in West Virginia. We look forward to the employees of Peoples Gas WV joining our team. We will continue to work to not only provide safe and reliable natural gas service, but to also provide the energy to help attract new businesses to the Mountain State, which will, in turn, create more family sustaining jobs.
At the time of their sale, Hope Gas was the second- largest natural gas utility company in the state. Hope Gas has since added customers in at least a dozen counties, currently serving residents in 35 counties.
Natural gas prices have been falling because of relatively warm weather in Europe and the U.S. But the commodity's price is quite volatile and shouldn't be the sole reason for investing in companies that produce natural gas.
A key driver for natural gas demand is the energy transition. New wind and solar generation are now cheaper than new natural gas plants in some places, but those renewable resources will take time to build, meaning there will continue to be a market for natural gas.
Natural gas has been replacing coal for electricity generation in the U.S. and elsewhere. Although it's nowhere near as clean as renewable energy, it does reduce emissions when compared with burning coal for power. That's why it's seen as a bridge fuel between coal and renewable energy for powering the grid.
To transport natural gas to global markets from the U.S., the gas needs to be cooled into a liquid. The U.S. used to import liquefied natural gas, but the shale gas boom and investment in facilities that liquefy the gas have made the nation into the world's biggest exporter of the commodity.
"The world is searching for secure supply sources of natural gas, and the U.S. is a likely source of future natural gas supply, which will benefit Cheniere well into the future," says Rob Thummel, senior portfolio manager at Tortoise.
"The current regulatory environment makes it difficult to expand the U.S. pipeline infrastructure network, including natural gas pipelines operated by Williams, increasing the value of the existing pipeline network," Thummel says.
"In the future, Williams will benefit from higher transportation volumes as natural gas gains market share in the U.S. and internationally, as part of an all-of-the-above approach to reducing emissions," he adds.
Like many U.S. energy companies, EQT has been focusing on share buybacks. In the third quarter, the company repurchased $380 million of common stock and doubled its 2022-2023 share repurchase authorization to $2 billion.
"EQT's CEO, Toby Rice, is a crusader for the natural gas industry, highlighting the numerous benefits of natural gas including significant reductions in carbon dioxide emissions when natural gas replaces coal," Thummel says.
In addition to natural gas, the company also invests in renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar. It has committed about $6 billion to renewable energy and power transmission projects that are in operation or under construction.
This pipeline operator's natural gas pipelines segment operates major interstate and intrastate natural gas pipeline and storage systems; natural gas gathering systems and processing and treating facilities; natural gas liquids fractionation facilities and transportation systems; and liquefied natural gas regasification, liquefaction and storage facilities.
Targa is another infrastructure company that provides midstream services. It gathers natural gas and crude oil at the areas where they are produced and sells those commodities to market customers. The company also says it has a leading position at a natural gas liquids hub in Texas.
In January, Targa announced it had completed an acquisition of Blackstone Energy Partners' 25% interest in Targa's Grand Prix natural gas liquids pipeline for $1.05 billion, giving Targa 100% ownership of the pipeline.
Natural gas companies like Targa are facing high natural gas inventories in the U.S. amid high production and warmer-than-normal weather, but there are some bright spots for demand. A major liquefied natural gas export plant in Texas that has been idled is expected to return to full operations in April, which "will be a welcomed increase in natural gas demand," Thummel says.
"With coal prices remaining high, there is potential for natural gas to be used rather than coal to generate electricity throughout the summer," Thummel says, alleviating some of the excess natural gas inventory.

Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) (15 U.S.C. 717b) prohibits the import or export of natural gas, including liquefied natural gas (LNG) from or to a foreign country without prior approval from the Department of Energy (DOE). Parties who want to enter into natural gas transactions with foreign sellers and buyers must file for an import and/or export authorization under the rules and procedures found in (10 CFR Part 590) of DOE's regulations.
The following general instructions are designed to assist applicants applying for an import and/or export authorization. While the process is not complicated, applications are required to be filed at least 90 days in advance of the proposed import and/or export. (10 CFR Part 590.201)
Applicants are encouraged to use DOE's Import/Export Authorization Portal for submission of Short-Term/Blanket Applications, Vacate, Name Change, and other required documents .

If you are already a Portal User, you can navigate directly to the Portal, and use the "Applications" button to submit a short-term/blanket 2-year application.
Please note that, at this time Applications for Long-Term Authority to import and/or export natural gas/LNG must still be filed using hard-copy paper format. However, these can be submitted through our email: FERGAS@hq.doe.gov, however, confidential information should be sent by overnight delivery mail.
After complete review of the application, a docket number will be assigned.
