The industry continues to grow and become more complex at the same time. New firms are entering the business at all links of the supply chain, forcing established players to evolve and show increasing differentiation.
This book aims to provide an understanding of the LNG business and covers major sections including supply and demand, management and technology, projects by region, statistics and a glossary of terms. It also contains a World LNG map produced by Petroleum Economist’s renowned cartographic department.
