  • [EBOOK] The Barriers To A Small-Mid Scale LNG Future[EBOOK] The Barriers To A Small-Mid Scale LNG Future
    Global energy demand is set to double by 2050.

    As a result, natural gas will become an increasingly important part of the global energy mix. That said, transportation of gas to regions far from gas fields can be both expensive and impractical. Enter liquefied natural gas (LNG).

    Since the first shipment of LNG in 1959, the industry has burgeoned and undergone a dramatic pace of change. In the last half-decade the global economy has gone through major crises and technology has improved enough to make smaller commercial projects possible.

    Yet there are still major barriers for the adoption of LNG solutions. In an atmosphere of low oil prices, a multitude of hurdles are still left to be jumped  before the broad scale conversion of the industrial, automotive and marine sectors to LNG as a fuel.

    In the following e-book compendium, we take a look at several cases from across the energy world that present the current LNG landscape and solutions to the adoption of this up-and-coming fuel source.


  • THE BOARDROOM: Three Ways To Bring Down The Barriers To LNG ConversionTHE BOARDROOM: Three Ways To Bring Down The Barriers To LNG Conversion
    Check out this exclusive interview for Oil & Gas IQ, Editor in Chief, Tim Haïdar, speaks with the CEO of Primagaz Benelux, Maarten Bijl. In the course of his interview, Maarten touches on the state of LNG conversion in an atmosphere of low oil prices, and what should be done to successfully jump the barriers that stand in the way of both industrial and automotive conversion to LNG as a fuel.




  • LNG Is The Future Of Shipping – But It Will Be A Battle Against The Tide

    In this exclusive interview, Tim Haïdar speaks with Johan Algell, Managing Director of White Smoke Shipping about why liquefied natural gas (LNG) should be the shipping fuel of the future.

    LNG offers one of the most prominent solutions, reducing sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide emissions while being economically feasible. With the DNV projecting that by 2030 up to 45% of vessels be will fuelled by LNG, LNG seems a convincing alternative.

    In the course of this interview, Johan touches on:

    • Why LNG above other fuels? What makes this a more prominent solution to meet ECA standards than conventional fuels?

    • What is the greatest obstacle facing the expansion of LNG bunkering today?

    • The importance of co-operation between business, government and industry to make LNG bunkering a financially viable prospect.

    • Risk sharing across the stakeholder spectrum as an impetus for LNG bunker capacity development

    • 2015: Will LNG infrastructure be in place to meet ECA requirements?


  • [TIMELINE] From Steam To LNG - The History and Evolution Of Global Shipping
    Since the dawn of civilisation, international commerce has been carried out by ship. In 2013, approximately 90 per cent of world trade was carried by sea - the most cost-effective way to move goods and raw materials around the world en masse. In this timeline, we chronicle the history of world shipping from the advent of steam propulsion through the diesel age to the coming of the next revolution in the maritime world – liquefied natural gas (LNG).   Tim Haïdar is the Editor In Chief at Oil & Gas IQ.
