With a flood of natural gas supply stemming from discoveries in Appalachian Basin and Texas driving down prices, the industry's customers, petrochemical and manufacturing companies, demanded natural gas liquids to pad dwindling profit margins during the recession, increasing industry revenue over the past five years. Demand is expected to rise further in the next five-year period as natural gas extraction picks up and demand for CO2 increases, spurring the need for transportation of natural gas liquids.
