POINT ROBERTS, Wash. - NaturalGasStocks.com, an investor portal for the natural gas sector, announced that it is hosting its first online investor conference in audio format, Nov. 17, 2004.

The natural gas sector, along with oil, is attracting attention as natural gas prices closed at $7.25 per thousand cubic feet in early October and analysts warn of higher prices this winter. For residential heating, utilities are predicting price increases of between 10 and 15 percent this winter. A long or harsh winter would send prices even higher.

The online forum/conference will feature speakers from a cross-section of small and large public companies in the natural gas sector as well as industry experts. The format will be an audio presentation and an accompanying PowerPoint presentation.
