Product Description


by Michael D. Tusiani and Gordon Shearer

The demand for natural gas rises annually, straining existing suppliers, and emerging markets often aren't accessible by pipeline. Here in everyday language and real-world examples is the clear presentation of 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. Readers will realize the complexity of this industry, which involves an intricate link of critical companies, governments and stand-alone facilities.
