The key to this article is that natural gas demand is going to ramp up in the US to at least double current levels in the next few years, (>200 natural gas plants in construction, only 2 nuclear) the only thing that could prevent that is if coal prices drop. Even then carbon taxes and air pollution laws strongly favour gas.
So when the plants come on line, LPG terminals are ready to export and the slow down in drilling due to depressed prices, natural gas prices will shoot up, probably to 7-8 USD/M3 from 2-3 now (prices in Europe are around 17 USD/M3. This is a great investing opportunity.
Look at this chart of historical prices

Not only that, but nuclear will then see a resurgence in a few years as gas prices increase and the government and power companies realise they shouldn't put all their eggs in one basket. As many US power companies will be sitting on pre-approved nuclear plants that have passed up to date safety standards, nuclear plants will be built much faster than previously meaning stocks related to supply of nuclear power generating equipment will get a big boost.
How would you suggest a retail investor participate in the coming natural gas advance, in terms of investment vehicles?
