Type of article: Periodical article, Review

Summary

Spanish translation of the 19th IIR Informatory Note published in issue 2006-5 of the Bulletin of the IIR (see this Bulletin, reference 2007-0017). LNG technology has been in use since the 1960s and is constantly evolving. The three main trends likely to shape the future of LNG trading are: emergence of new markets and commitments forcing buyers to seek more flexible supplies and use energy mixes; reductions in the cost of LNG, now able to compete with conventional pipeline gas; development of short-term LNG trading. Although LNG is still expensive to produce and transport, efforts (technological as well as contractual) are being made to reduce these costs and to increase process efficiency. Nevertheless, LNG is already competitive compared with diesel fuel, LPG and oil in many countries. Furthermore, the environmental benefits of natural gas and the technical/economic advantages of gas liquefaction should potentially allow LNG to become a major energy vector.
