Natural gas prices between $4 and $5/MMBtu will trigger a return to large-scale drilling in U.S. dry gas sites, Platts writes, quoting execs at its Appalachian Gas Conference. The exception would be the Marcellus Shale region, where up to $3B of new pipelines could unlock the equivalent of 5% of daily U.S. natural gas supply in the last months of this year and in 2013.
