Spot and future prices set at Henry Hub are denominated in $/mmbtu (millions of British thermal units) and are generally seen to be the primary price set for the North American natural gas market. North American unregulated wellhead and burner tip natural gas prices are closely correlated to those set at Henry Hub.
