Areas of Expertise
LNG is one of the fastest growing energy sources globally. The LNG industry is undergoing a tectonic shift from both commercial and technical perspectives. Some of the key factors that will shape the outlook of LNG markets include: the impact of North American LNG on global markets, the growing demand for floating regasification (FSRU) and LNG storage (FSU), as well as the proliferation of floating liquefaction technologies (FLNG). Key LNG industry players are expanding their industry reach, while, increasingly, new companies are looking to enter the LNG market and benefit from the opportunities provided by conventional and shale gas resources.
