While predicting that US natural gas prices will reach $6/MMBtu by 2015, Goldman Sachs analysts projected they will average about $4.25/MMBtu in the near term as new shale gas continues to flow into the market.

Goldman said it believes gas supplies will grow by 2.9 Bcf/d this year and by 1.2 Bcf/d in 2012.
