(EnergyAsia, March 17, Monday) — Petroleum Economists, one of the world’s most recognised energy publishing brands, has released three books: Fundamentals of Carbon Capture & Storage Technology, Fundamentals of the Global LNG Industry 2007 and Fundamentals of the Global Oil and Gas Industry 2007.

Fundamentals of Carbon Capture & Storage Technology
Carbon capture and storage is essential for a sustainable energy future in a world that faces constraints on the use of carbon but remains – for the foreseeable future – reliant on fossil fuels. Carbon capture and storage has the potential to make a quarter of the emissions reductions required to stabilise the atmospheric concentration of CO2 at 550 parts per million (ppm) and limit temperatures rises to 2ºC above pre-industrial levels.

This book is an up-to-date assessment of the state of the industry and a valuable resource for government policy makers, lawyers, industry, executives, non-governmental organisations, analysts and bankers.

Fundamentals of the Global LNG Industry 2007
Over the past decade, developments in the LNG business have been impressive. New players have entered the industry and by 2007 there were 13 exporting and 17 importing countries. Liquefaction capacity more than doubled in 2006, from 86 million tonnes a year (t/y) to about 183m t/y. Regasification capacity was also up sharply, from 242m t/y to 373m t/y in 2006.
In 2006, the US reopened all of its mothballed LNG import terminals and deliveries to the UK began for the first time since 1990. The LNG tanker fleet is developing quickly, with around 220 ships servicing the industry today, compared with 90 in 1995. The types of company involved have also diversified, with power utilities joining the ranks as markets reshape. With so many changes, it is essential to have the latest information easily to hand.

‘Fundamentals of the Global LNG Industry’ is the pre-eminent guide to LNG. This book contains 35 articles in which leading industry executives examine the industry’s key issues.

Fundamentals of the Global Oil and Gas Industry 2007
Population growth and globalisation have led to a phenomenal rise in the use of energy. Demand for oil and gas continues to grow and must be met through traditional as well as unconventional sources. Experience shows that price volatility and alternating boom and bust cycles are harmful to both the industry and the consumers.

The challenge for the industry in a world in transition is to ensure continuous, affordable and reliable supply, meeting society’s expectations in a sustainable, transparent, ethical and environmentally sound manner.

In ‘Fundamentals of the Global Oil and Gas Industry 2007’, journalists from the Petroleum Economist and experienced industry commentators examine the issues that are challenging the industry. The 130-page book covers a range of topics which include environmental responsibility and its challenges, mergers and acquisitions, the role of new graduates in the oil industry and dispute resolution.
