LNG: a nontechnical guide.

Author(s) : TUSIANI M. D., SHEARER G.

Type of monograph: Book, Guide/Handbook


The demand for natural gas rises annually, straining existing suppliers, and emerging markets often aren't accessible by pipeline. The guide presents, in everyday language and real-world examples, LNG as the most viable energy answer. Using even the most conservative estimates, demand for LNG internationally will double by 2020, and billions of dollars will be needed for the infrastructure investment. This straightforward explanation of a complex industry proves that LNG can deliver a critical link in the energy demands of international economies. With a proven track record of safety and reliability, the LNG industry stands ready to bridge the international gap between supply and demand in energy transport.
