Natural Gas: A Geographical Perspective
Preview not available

Abstract

Increasing regional deficits of natural gas in the United States could result in disparate regional levels of economic growth. A linear programming model, shown to satisfactorily replicate present natural gas flows, is used to identify the spatial pattern of United States natural gas deficits by state. Increasing shortages, particularly in the Manufacturing Belt, may be expected through 1990 owing to decreasing natural gas availability and to increasing demand. Potential regions for the location of liquefied and synthetic natural gas facilities and international pipeline routes to supplement natural gas supplies are suggested.
